SELF CONTROL


You will find that if you are undisciplined in one area, that you lack self-control in other areas as well. Although you may be able to hide, be assured, your sin will find you out. For My light in your spirit is continually searching for anything that defiles My temple. Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit, and I have provided all of the grace that you need to overcome. Therefore, submit to the Father of lights and live!

Do not run and hide from My light, but run to it! I am more than willing to help you overcome, but you must yield to My process. It may be uncomfortable for your flesh, but in the end it will yield the fruit of righteousness, which is My way of thinking and doing things. Do not bow to shame or fear, for they will only cause you to go deeper into bondage.

Come into the light of My truth. Confess your sins to one another so that you may be healed. My grace is sufficient each and every day. Come boldly to My throne of grace where you will find Me waiting to offer mercy and grace anytime you ask. I am here waiting. Don't delay, for we have Kingdom work to do. Come into the light and find freedom.


Proverbs 25:28 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

People who cannot control themselves are like cities without walls to protect them.


1 Corinthians 9:24-25 International Standard Version (ISV)

24 You know that in a race all the runners run but only one wins the prize, don’t you? You must run in such a way that you may be victorious. 25 Everyone who enters an athletic contest practices self-control in everything. They do it to win a wreath that withers away, but we run to win a prize that never fades.


Galatians 5:22-24 New Century Version (NCV)

22 But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. There is no law that says these things are wrong. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their own sinful selves. They have given up their old selfish feelings and the evil things they wanted to do.
