Suppose you accidentally see or hear something that is sexually stimulating? The Bible recommends that you should prepare yourself for action; beself-control.(1 Peter 1:13) says; exert your mind and reject the immoral thought. The arousal will soon die down.
Rejecting bad thoughts is specially difficult, though when one is alone at night. One young woman advises; "The best thing to do is get right out of bed and get busy with some type of work, or maybe have a little snack, so thatyour mind turns to other things."Yes,forceyourself to consider whatever things are of serious concern, righteous, chaste, lovable, well spoken of.' (Philippians 4:8)
When you have difficulty falling asleep, endeavor to imitate faithful King David, who wrote; "When i have remembered you God upon my lounge, during the night watches I meditate on you." (Psalm 63:6)Forcingyour mind to ponder on God and his qualities will often break the spell. It also help if you keep thinking of how God views this unclean habit (Psalm 97:10)
