    Do you know the (worldly) parable of the two wolves? The one you feed will grow, the one you hunger starves. Also with these "feelings" (which is your flesh), if you feed them, you will feel them. If you don't,  it will starve. It all starts with the renewing of the mind as is stated in the Bible.

    Prayer is always such a great starting point in tackling any problem.But the Christian faith often calls us to action.Action of our part,with the  help of  the Holy Spirit  of course.The Apostle Paul encourages christians to flee from sexual immorality.( 1 Corinthians 6 : 18).

    The Bible is frank about sexual joy within the circle of faithfulness,marriage and is also frank about the effects of sin.Sometimes we have to be honest,with our sin, especially sexual sin.Christian Folk would rather over spiritualize sexual sin rather than being open about this.

    But how does one 'flee' when we  live in such a loud culture?. We are constantly bombarded by information,sexual innuendos & pornographic materials .It seems "sex sales" anything,from kitchen products to baby products.Even coming to cmatch free ads of "Do you want to meet Russian  girls" & other sexually loud ads often greet me. I have often even felt sorry for the guy folk,on here as it's targeting them.So it seems you can hardly escape sexual temptation because it's so accessible & we are now so disensitized it's nolonger a moral outrage.But God's standards still haven't changed.

    Part of  fleeing anything,includes taking some practical steps to protect oneself.The Bible rightly warns us to put on the whole armour of God in Ephesians 6: 14 - 17.Important pieces of armour in this instance being the belt of truth & the sword of the spirit.

    Truth is the joy of illicit sexual conduct is often short-lived and robs one of the true satisfaction to be found in God's design.God's design is the best design ( covenantal context).

    I find the F.L.E.E method quite helpful.

    1..Fill yourself with Christ.

    2..Lock out the Lies.

    3..Exchange lies for truth.

    4..Expose yourself to the light.

    It's also important to note that,being married is not a cure-all  for sexual lust, pornography or impure thoughts.If you are having these problems now it might actually impact your future marriage.

    This  podcasts below (Boundless.org) was a great listen & discusses this issue in detail.So helpful.Episode 509

    Remember : Now yells louder but later lasts longer.

    God bless

    Tina807 and Afra622 said most of all. I only add we need fervent prayer and constant watching lifestyle in the Grace to overcome at last. We also need centre our mind and or focus on prayerful lifestyle that God reveal to us the glory set before us as was recorded in the case of Christ and which made Christ endure the cross. The temptation is overcome by made up and focused minds on the word of God. May God help us overcome this end time wile of the wicked because only grace can see us through all things.

    Theres a saying garbage in garbage out it all goes down to what you see and hear, e.g if you watch stuff that awakens your feelings then you are bound to fall rem you need not to awaken love before its time this is an issue that very many young people i included struggles with its a hard thing but by prayer and the help of the holy spirit we will stand firm and wait till marriage!!

    One of the biggest struggles I had being a young adult in the church was that there was always this one person who stood out at church. I would always say to myself "no! That person is a brother in Christ and somebody else's wife! (Even if he is single. I mean that God has him set aside for someone else - and I know it by just looking at him!) It becomes like a soul tie that must be severed. I ask God to forgive me of my sinful nature. Plead the blood of Jesus over this circumstance. Ask God to unhook and cut the soul tie between me and this person (even if we haven't spoken it still seems to happen) ask for the Holy Spirit to reveal Gods truth and then leave it at the feet of Jesus casting this care on Him and waiting for Him to set me free from ungodly the bondage of lust or crush in Jesus name.

    Great topic for prayer especially for those of us who are single and awaiting a Godly wife or husband.

    I am about to start reading “The Wait” by DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good. It’s a great book explaining God’s blessing in living a life of sexual purity while you await your marriage partner. After recently coming out of an unequally yoked relationship I have made a commitment to God as well as my future husband to remain pure.

    Thank You Heavenly Father for my brothers and sisters who stand in agreement of Your Word and flee from sexual immorality. Thank You for blessing us as we wait and trust You in all areas of our lives. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

    Sadly but it sounds like lust. I am sorry that you have to go through it all. It won’t be easy but God can help you dear.
