Lust and comfort (not always about porn)

A revelation I have known for a while.  It is not about the filters it is about the heart.  It is not about accountability it is about the heart.  Filters are only deterrents.  Accountability?  well you decide?   Another revelation is where I relied more on the Filters,   than I did Holy Spirit to stay pure.  What are you relying on?
It has taken me a long time to come to that and it took Daddy to reveal that to me.  As of four weeks ago I am filter free.  I have had filters on my computers since 2001.  I became a “professional get around the filter guy”   Until the heart is healed all the filters and accountability will not do anything.  They are temporary fixes.   There are no filters in the grocery store.  There are no filters on your eyes when you are staring at a hot woman. .  The filter is the heart.  There are no accountability partners in the grocery store either.   I do believe there is a season where you do need men in your life that will hold you accountable.  I do believe there is a season where you need a filter on your computer.  Let’s face it.   If you want to look at porn no man and no filter will prevent that.  There is no filter for the visual Rolodex that is in your mind.
I am writing to you on a computer that has no filter on it anymore and my wife knows about it.  We talk about it.  I don’t have men that hold me accountable any more,  it doesn’t work for the most part.  You can only be held accountable to your Daddy in Heaven.   You need brothers to sharpen you and to speak truth to you.
You have to come to the understanding that this is not about lust but it is about the comfort that you seek when you believe the lie about yourself.  Whatever that lie may be.   What if your comfort was food?  There is not a filter for that? What if your comfort was golf?  No filter there. There is not a filter when you feel bad and want to go to Cabela’s or to best buy and spend money so you can feel better
My question to you is this.  What is the lie that you believe about yourself that is keeping you from the promise land?
 I have read every book out there about porn addiction and they all say the same thing but with a different twist.
I am not saying remove the filters,  Because I had them for years.   What I am saying is you do need to take your heart to Daddy.

I am the Light of the World  John 8:12
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, m“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
