Day 4- Self-Control

*PRAY*

Half of Bible study is reading the Word, the other half is revelation from the Holy Spirit. Pray that God would open your eyes to new truths today.

Defined:

1) the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations (phew!)

Affirmed:

As you look at each of these verses, read them slowly and prayerfully. Try to see them in a new light as you meditate on their truths and how they can be applied to your life

Proverbs 25:26)

“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”

Galatians 3: 22-23)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

~ Proverbs 13:3

Applied:

Challenge yourself this week by prayerfully journaling about these questions and others that you think of to stretch your personal faith. What I chose to do when I was working through this study was write the characteristic of the day on my left wrist. This helped me to remember to grow in that area throughout my day!

~In what ways can I implement self-control in my life?

~What distractions cause me to lose control of myself and stop pleasing the Lord (i.e. social media, phone, dessert, hanging out with certain people, etc.)?

~How can I stay away from those things?

~How can I practice self-control with my words?
