I just cant take it anymore

So recently i have been feeling like i am in a hole. I feel like because i am in this hole, i am getting farther away God. I have been in this hole for a while. Satan has been tempting me and telling me to do things and look at things that i know is wrong and i hate these things. I have been trying to resist, i gave in a couple of times. I feel like he is sucking the life out of me. I feel like he is destroying the relationship i have with God. I havent told anybody about this, i have been trying to deal with it myself. I want to be closer to God, I want to be as close as i can get. I dont know what to do anymore. Every night i get the temptations over and over and over. I try so hard to resist. I know that Christ Loves me and he is my savior but i feel i like i am farther than i have ever been. I feel like i am alone. I want to get to the point in my Relationship where when i get asked about my relationship i just start crying because i am as close as a will ever be. I dream of that but i dont know if i can get there. Satan has been tempting me to do things that are wrong morally and socially and mentally. I know it is going to mess up my relationships in the future. I need help, i am telling you guys this because you have helped me before and i trust you guys. So if you can help me please feel free to post something.

    Hi, I am glad that you feel that this website is a safe enough place to share your troubles. As Christians we are all a part of God’s family and should build up and uplift each other.

    You are doing the right things, if you weren’t you wouldn’t be as spiritually harassed as you are being now. Do you think the devil wastes time trying to get those who are willfully leading lives of sin? No, but he pulls out the big guns on Christians and those trying to follow God. Sometimes, I would wonder why I didn’t struggle as much or seem to have as hard a time in life when I didn’t know God. Well, the answer is simple. Satan had me where he wanted me. Just try leading a life for God and see how much harder things get for you.

    In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be
    persecuted, 2 Timothy 3:12

    Dear friends, do not be
    surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something
    strange were happening to you. But
    rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you
    may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.1 Peter 4:12-13

    When Christians choose to follow God and turn their back on sin, they enter into a three-fold fight. A fight against society. A fight against the devil and fallen angels. And a fight against your very nature, the flesh, who loves to sin and cannot obey God.Nevertheless, God has told us in His Word that He is greater than the one who is in the world

    It is not a sin to be tempted. Even Jesus was tempted.

    Phillippians 4:8 offers some practical advice on how to keep our thoughts pure.

    I heard a television preacher say something significant. He exhorted the viewers who turned their life to Jesus to forget about the past. We are forgiven of it. He went on to say that new converts come to him all the time and ask him ‘How do I stop thinking about this…?’. His answer to them was simple and profound. ‘Think about something else’, but more importantly he told them to think about Jesus.

    It is not an easy thing, which is why it was something Paul had to command the Christians at Phillipi to ‘think on these things’. It is against human nature, it is only thruogh the power of Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit.

    You said at night, you are tempted over and over again to fall into this sin. Mediate on the Word during this time. It is not easy, it is something that has to be praticed and done with consistency and prayer! Musing over how sinful you are isn’t going to help you, if you never turn to the One who can heal you and restore you. The most and worse you feel tempted, the more you spend time with God and pray. The more you claim the promises in your life and say it out loud.

    I know it sounds cliche and you may have done it before and felt helpless.  It is very, very hard at first, but if you determine that you would not let go until He blesses you, things WILL start changing in your life( God’s done it for me! 🙂 ). Remember God not only wants to heal and cleanse you, He wants a relationship with you!

    Think on these verses:

    The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely
    to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:18

    Therefore
    we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet
    inwardly we are being renewed day by day.For
    our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory
    that far outweighs them all. So
    we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is
    seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

    Colossians 1:13-14 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and
    brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have
    redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 

    Hebrew 4:14-16

    Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone
    through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the
    faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to
    sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in
    every way, just as we are yet was without sin. Let us then approach the
    throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find
    grace to help us in our time of need.

    1 Chronicles 16:11
    Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

    Titus 2:14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us
    from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own
    possession, zealous for good deeds.

    Stay strong in the Lord!

      Just in addition, I would say keep seeking and praying to God for intervention and deliverance from the situation. Don’t try go up against Satan directly by directly rebuking spirits and demons etc (direct confrontation) but apply the spiritual warfare that is biblical, powerful and effective. This involves indirect confrontation in looking to God, seeking God and focusing on God for your deliverance and His intervention. God’s just recently corrected me from error in that I would often directly confront Satan and demons (rebuking them, binding them etc) thinking this was biblical and correct, where I’ve learnt that biblical sound spiritual warfare is indirectly confronting Satan and demons by looking and focusing on God as our deliverer and battle fighter. (see below). I had to actually confess this and repent to God, because unknowingly I was claiming authority I did not have by directly opposing Satan and his demons (opens a door and gives Satan ground in your life). It is God’s role to do that on our behalf as we seek His intervention and deliverance.

       

      The biblical weapons of spiritual warfare (could be seen as living as a christian) include:

      (1) prayer (connects us directly the spiritual realm and we enter Gods throneroom where He can act on our behalf in the spiritual realm and against Satan to deliver us – very very powerful)

      (2) fasting – powerful and biblical (obviously care and discernment is to be taken depending on health situations/conditions (pregnancy, diabetes etc) also like teenagers still developing – discernments on length of fast etc) Good explanation on fasting link (chapter 4)

      (3) the Word of God (sword of the Spirit & belt of truth) – immerse yourself in the word and meditate on it, asking God to speak, lead you, reveal to you and work in you

      (4) Walking in love, repentance and forgiveness (shoes of peace) – abiding in Christ

      (5) Walking in fellowship with other christains (can get prayer for each other, build each other up, get prayer for healing etc.)

      (6) Walking in humility (“humble yourselve before the Lord, and He shall life you up” James 4:10 (7)

      (7) Walking in submission (submission to God – submitting to His Word and His Spirit and submission to one another)

      (8) The Blood of Jesus (abiding in Christ, the covering of His Blood, forgiveness, cleansing of sin etc)

      (9) Praise and thanksgiving (powerful)

      (10) Faith (shield of faith – rem faith is conviction (of God’s Word and what He reveals to you) and resolve (you resolve to believe the Word and trust God)

      (11) Our position in Christ (who we are in Him, our identity, what that means – we have full confidence and access to the Father and God’s love, power and favor is ours through Jesus, as well as His goodness and righteousness etc.) and the name of Jesus.

      This list is not exhaustive (there are many more weapons we have from the Word). I just wanted to note I just read a book by Eric Gondwe entitled “Major Spiritual Warfare Principles: Biblical Do’s and Don’ts of Warfare” and got most of the above information advice from this book and especially chapter 9 (see this chapter for a list of more of our weapons for spiritual warfare). I really hope this helps as you apply these things. I know these weapons are very powerful and effective from personal experience recently, (James 5:16 …”the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” – we are righteous in Christ – His righteosness | also 2 Corinthians 10:4,5)

       

      If you or anyone wants to check out some of the book here’s a link.

      I bought it online in pdf format but the above link looks like a free version missing some content – but most of its there.
