Micah 2:1 “Woe to those who devise iniquity, And work out evil on their beds! At the morning they practice it.”
I have lived this before with porn. Everyone who has been in bondage to pornography or sexual immorality of any kind has gone through this dark night of the soul. So many thoughts at night while trying to sleep. Sometimes even begging for sleep, knowing that the pull of lust is far greater then one realized. Over time we give up the fight and just buy into it. Living with it becomes easier then battling it. This is a no fun place to be. Oh, the inward moaning that rips us apart. C.S. Lewis once said that a man with a obsession has very little sales resistance. On our bed’s this is true. Obsession wins the battle in our minds, every time.
Jesus breaks this bondage. John 8:36 “If the Son set’s you free you are free indeed!”
When Jesus became more than (Matthew 10:37) porn, our pleasure is now found in Him. What battle used to rage in the mind and hearts of us on those dark nights in bed cease, for what was once a obsession, is no longer so good looking, we have something far more pleasurable and eternal!
2nd Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, whih is but for moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of Glory.”
For us to abstain from porn is a great gain a eternal weight of Glory.
Of curse this only will make sense if you believe in the eternal.
