3 A lack of self-control is tragic.

4 The original meaning for self-control is “strength within”.

5 “Who rules your life?”

6 Is the Holy Spirit in charge of you or the spiritual forces of evil?

7 Gal. 5:17-21 lists the fruit of our fleshly nature “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

8 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness,

9 orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

10 Proverbs 25:28 “Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.”

11 habits

12 Our list of fruit began with love and ends with self-control.

13 Do you feel out of control in an area of your life?

14 How to overcome a lack of self-control:

15 Take responsibility for your life.

16 Understand what you’re fighting. the inner enemy- your physical nature. outer evil forces that are in partnership with satan.

17 Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,

18 against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

19 Come back close to your Father and repent of your sin.

20 James 4:8 “Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double- minded.”

21 Submit yourself to God. James 4:7 “Submit yourselves to God. Then resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

22 Replace bad habits with prayer and Bible study.

23 Run from temptation.

24 Stay away from people, places, activities and events that influence you towards sinful activity.

25 Rehearse where you are going.

28 ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self- controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.”
