A Womans Walk with God | Self-Control

Winning the Battle of Self-Control
1. One is the control of the self- self-restraint, self-government, and self-command.Galatians 5:17
2. Object of control- our passions, appetites, pleasures, desires and impulses.Ephesians 6:10-13
3. To live in a self-controlled body is to be disciplined by the soul to glorify God in all its actions.1 Corinthians 6:19

Self-Control DOES...
-controls and checks the self.
-restrains the self.
-disciplines and masters the self.
-holds in and commands the self.
-says, "No!" to self.

Self-Control DOES NOT...
-yeild to temptation.
-give in to desires.
-participate in sin.
-indulge itself.
-satisfy itself.

Struggling for Self-Control
Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity. 1 John 2:15

Nurturing Self-Control
-Begin with Christ
-Monitor your input. "I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes." Psalm 101:3 KJV
-Stay busy. Refuse to eat the bread of 'idleness' Proverbs 31:27
-Saying No is the key to self-control, the word that the Lord blesses.. "Like a city that is broken into and without walls is a man who has no control over his spirit." Proverbs 25:28
-Pray, Pray about every aspect of your life!

We can claim His power, walk by His Spirit, excercise self-control and win the battle over temptations. then we will display the beauty of Christ as we walk with Him through our everyday lives!
