There are a lot of interesting strategies that have been implemented in the fight against lust. Some have been found to be more successful than others. And it is my opinion that pretty much any plan that works is a good plan.
But here’s one you may have not thought of before. In the words of John Piper, “The deepest cure for lust is to be intellectually and emotionally staggered by God.”
Here’s another way to say it: In order for you to get over that which is to be under you, you must first get under that which is supposed to be over you.
Scripture says it well: “The Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God” (Deuteronomy 10:17).
Recovery Step: Become infatuated with God. Let the knowledge of Jesus Christ and his will for your life become your greatest pursuit.
