Self-Control Is A Free Gift

Self-control is a free gift from God.

There is freedom from addictions in the Holy Spirit.

Do you struggle with habits you don’t want? You know what they are. Some things are fine in moderation, but maybe you don’t keep moderate. Maybe you go way beyond what is safe and healthy. Maybe it’s a habit that is in no way healthy mentally, physically, or emotionally. God has already provided a way to help.

One of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control. It is the power to control yourself without needing others to shame or control you. Self help is a billion dollar industry, but you have the means to d do what is right for you in the Holy Spirit.

That’s the key–you must be filled with the Holy Spirit. If you are not, ask God to fill you now. Keep asking until you are. If you are filled and you still struggle, then you haven’t allowed Him to change you. Declare the fruits of the Spirit in your life. They are all yours. Declare that you have self-control, because, if you have His Spirit, you do have it.

Addictions can be  broken. They are a spirit to be renounced and confessed. Repent and ask for God to fill you and release His presence in your life. It is the beginning of a strong and healthy future.
