The Importance of Self-Control

The Importance of Self-Control: A Christian needs to know how to overcome his/herself, a Christian

doesn’t need to bow down for a loss of flesh, for example, some of the latest styles and new

personalities, Even though you know it isn’t right in the presence of God, some will go ahead and do it

never about God’s feelings. some of your body systems don’t like what is done with it but because you

want to feel along you will still do it despite your system being against it, try to self-control live in the

spirit, not in the body. Naked we all come to this world and naked we all go because it’s all vanity,

be yourself don’t try to be another person, no matter how much you say”you love God” if you can’t

have self-control you will keep on falling. The loss of flesh isn’t needed to be accommodated,

for example: If you aren’t a drug addict but you have friends who are drug addicts, despite knowing

that your body system does not go along with drugs but because you want to feel along with your

friends, so you joined them. The Bible says in Titus 2:1-12:But speak thou the things which become

sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not

given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to

love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to

their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Young men likewise exhort to be sober

minded. In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness,

gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be

ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you. Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters,

and to please them well in all things; not answering again; Not purloining, but shewing all good

fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.For the grace of God that

bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,

we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; (KJV).

The bible also says in John 2:16: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh

and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life,

is not from the Father, but is from the world (KJV). The Importance of Self-Control; also in Romans 13:13-14:

Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and

sensuality, not in strife and jealousy, But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the

flesh in regard to its lusts (KJV). The Importance of Self-Control; some women and men can’t resist

fornication and it makes their flesh rule over their spirit, by the time having self-control is hard then its

lust will rule over you. for example, King David: despite David being a man after God’s heart, he let his

flesh rule over him, The bible verse says in 2 Samuel 11:2-4: And it came to pass in an evening tide, that

David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw

a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon, and David sent and

required after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah

the Hittite? And David sent messengers and took her, and she came in unto him, and he lay with her;

for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house (KJV).

The Importance of Self-Control: Despite what he had done he still decided

to send Uriah to the battleground to be killed;

in 2 Samuel 11:143-17: And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab,

and sent it by the hand of Uriah, And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the

hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die, And it came to pass when Joab

observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were, And the

men of the city went out and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of

David, and Uriah the Hittite died also (KJV). The Importance of Self-Control:

If you genuinely love the Lord having self-control will be easy to have and maintain.

The Bible says in James 3:My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater

condemnation. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect

man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may

obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great,

and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the

governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a

matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our

members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire

of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and

hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly

poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after

the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these

things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can

the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water

and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good

conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your

hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly,

sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the

wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy

and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in

peace of them that make peace (KJV). The Importance of Self-Control

I pray for you these prayers:

1. May you overcome your flesh by the power of the blood of Jesus.

2. Any evil personality using your flesh to overcome you shall die in the name of Jesus.

3. You shall overcome every strongman and woman in your life in the name of Jesus.

4. Every spirit of the lust of the flesh in your life shall be destroyed in Jesus’s name.

5. Anointing for overcoming yourself shall fall upon you in Jesus’s name Amen.
