HELP! I am in the middle of a mess up, what do I do????? A Christians way Out.

The headline says it all. As many know, when I do something I feel is not right I come to the Brotherhood and let you know because it helps me and you. This is a good message today, not a failure. I want to put this out there because I think a lot of men will find themselves in the middle of doing something they do not want to do but find it hard to stop.

Last night, when I became quite tired and my medication kicked in, I pulled out my computer and mindlessly started to search out porn. Why? I have no clue, it was almost as if it were not me. Anyway, I found myself in the middle of a fall and I realized it, as most of us do. As I was looking I heard the Spirit say "turn your back on sin" and I immediately understood, it was the written word of God! I was being rescued by the Holy Spirit. Yes, I did look at the porn but I was given a way out and the way out was simple, turn your back. Or close the computer, put it away, stop what you are doing, it is not too late. Where I was about to fall I found strength and I was able to stop. I woke up this morning with so much love for my Jesus, so much appreciation that I was saved and so much conviction to come here and tell you, my dear Brothers!

Now, if you are a Christian and find yourself in the way of slipping remember that using the word is a very powerful tool. when Jesus was in the dessert being temped by the devil He answered 3 times and every time He answered He said "It is written" First, "it is written man does not live by bread alone by every word from the mouth of God" next "It is written though shall not temp the Lord your God" and finally "Away from me, Satan!” Jesus declared. “For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only." and with that the temptations disappeared. Now, I know none of us are Jesus, nor are we able to avoid many temptations but it is good to understand that the world of God is a sword in the time of battle. Last night when I was about to do wrong I heard "Turn your back on sin; do something good. Embrace peace - don't let it get away!" and I did just that.

Remember, where there is a temptation there is a way out.
