Hi. I am seeking advice regarding my situation. I am really struggling with lust. I can't control my thoughts, can't control myself. I'm really having a hard time. I feel like I am not really deserving to be a christian. I know I am sinning but I can't do anything about it. Though sometimes I'm trying not to submit myself to that sin, but at the end I really lose. I want to get rid of that. I wanna praise God with a clean thought and heart. Pls help me

Isaiah 1:18 saith the lord: thougth your sin be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Mat 9:13 for i am not come to call the righteous, but sinners repentance. 1John 3:20-21 if our heart condemn us not then have we confidence toward Gon. Dont condemn urself. He loves u with love that u will never imagine. Igrone the condemn, just focus to Jesus who calls u everyday, No one good, only god was and always god. U need to take many time to sit in his presence, he is holy, sit near god make us become holy too. He doesnt care ur condition, he just want heart that loves Him. *He says : Come my child dont be afraid.

Only God could aid you to get rid of this situation of yours. Without the aid of the HOLY SPIRIT it would be impossible for you overwhelmed that lust in your life. You need the assistance of God's spirit. You need to go with the Holy Spirit, so that you might be directed by the HOLY SPIRIT. You need to pray and fast, and ask the Lord for the HOLY SPIRIT. You shall received HOLY SPIRIT, and he will be your helper throughout your christian journey. Never say that You're not a Christian. The devil is using lust to draw you away from God. But it won't be possible as long as God is living. You know be determaine that you would be with the Lord alone. Lets it be your mind-set that you are of God, but not of the world. Just ask for the Lord for his spirit to come opon you. Have you baptized? If you haven't, then it may needed for you to baptized. Lets God's spirit go with you and direct you, and control your heart.
You need believers prayers too. You can request a prayer at your church or any online ministies.

You can stop this sin if you want to. You can live a sin free life, but YOU are only one that can decide. You sin because you want to, stop it. God Loves you.

You are not alone with your problem, sex is a normal appetite God put in us, although He dose have rules to follow. Study about fasting it can control the appetites. My father wrote many books on the subject. Soon I plan on taking a long fast to control my appetites. Dennis

Ask God to forgive you the sin and to cleanse you of the sin; by asking you acknowledge that you can't do it on your own, then believe in Him and let his Will be done

Lust doesn't have to be a sin miss. As long you don't manifest it trough egoism. Lust is a natural thing. By blocking it it creates frustration like many church fathers became gay or even pedofile because they dried to desperadly block their lust resulting in a sick mind. Even church fathers who succesfully pray, controling their lust have spontanious orgasms while sleeping, because your body needs this to elevate. Give your lust some space, it can be an inspirational thing triggering your creative mind. Let it go, God gave you joy of life, not to block it, but to selebrate life, your body and your spirit. Releaving your lust can be a spiritual experience, bringing you closer to what God is: Love. You learn to love the world by loving yourself not by hating what your body and spirit brings. Lust is nothing more than a desire to God. It is not comparable to earthly desires as welth, status and materialism. Thats why it rewards you with extacy, the celebration of the divine. Answer your lust ones in a while, don't fill your heart with guild. Don't listen to the medevil interpretation of Christ. God doesn't punish if you're heart is with love. If you think you have this heart don't be afraid to be young and lustfull, enjoy the life God gave you and observe your lust. It's more in your controle if you let it free than block it by prayings. Than your lust starts to morph to the unconscious and ecpress in new obscure parts of your personality and than you give the devil free play with you. So just be honoused while knowing who you are, anyhow your lust will temper. But you are young, what you feel is given by God, respect that, love life, the people and yourself.

There is no sin if you're not driven by anger, hate or egoism. You didn't harmed anybody, you can pray but there is nothing to forgive. God gave you lust not to punish you but to give you a good time and experience heaven in daily life, isn't that wonderfull. Don't ask for forgiveness in what he gave to you, be thankfull miss.
We all are sinners here, follen short. There is no big sin or small they all the same to GOD. It is by GODs Grace we are saved. Just don't worry about that, just know that GOD is working inside of you. It may take, a day , weeks, months or even years but GOD will always be there for you, walking with you, your struggles are not yours to walk alone. It is a life of Repentence we should live. If you have comited a sin just ask for GOD's forginess and move on. No use dwelling in the past... GOD will give you self control. That's the fruit of the spirit. I was in your shoes before, it is only through GOD that I have changed. It was not my own effort but it was GOD's timming.

@to jimmy. thankyou for the advice but it is written in the bible that lust is a sin?? i just can't understand.
byGloriousGloryon 15 Oct, 2014 06:15
Jimmy ure very wrong. The Bible says in 2Timothy 2:22; FLEE ALSO YOUTHFUL LUST…the Bible says FLEE as in RUN from it, dont even invite it once in a while. Run d way joseph did in Potiphar's house. If Joseph didnt run, he would probably not fufil his dream…until youre in line with God's commandment, you cant be fufilled in life.

Jimmy nooooo.Please read your bible and listen much to the word of God brother.Be careful when you add or subtract the words of the bible.There is severe punishment in doing so.You rather not say anything than saying what favours you.Please brethren let's be willing to learn and grow.Lust is a sin not to recon with. Peace be unto everyone in Jesus' name.
