Quit trying to quit porn - and train yourself instead! In this week's episode, Matt and Braden discuss why trying hard to quit porn won't get you anywhere and what it practically looks like to 'train yourself' instead.
Train Yourself in Godliness
We need to grow in our relationship with God first and understand who He is and who He says we are. Otherwise, our understanding is based on feeling defeated or we view ourselves as being worthless or alone. Training means changing our mindset and allowing God to heal our minds and hearts and that better sets us up to have our lives changed.
God Desires A Well-Rounded Relationship With Us
By getting to know God better, we will be growing and getting healing in the process. Training in godliness means becoming a new person, whereas trying on our terms means we are only focusing on beating porn, while not fully allowing God into our lives. This often leads to being stunted and even being more addicted than before because we are focused on performance, not on healing or relationship with God and others.
