Self-Control

00:00

Description

When God’s truth seeps into your mind, your heart accomplishes good things that can help you display self-control.

Have you ever been in a discussion when suddenly your blood pressure skyrockets and the worst version of you begs to come out? Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

It’s hard when someone else does things out of our control, yanking our emotions into a bad place. But I can decide whether or not to give them the power to control these emotions.

When I react by yelling or making a snappy comeback, I basically transfer my power to that other person. When I’m void of power, I’m void of self-control.

Now, when I say “my power,” I really mean God’s power working in me. When I react according to God’s truths, I feel that power. When I react in a way that’s contrary to His truths, I’m powerless.

When God’s truth seeps into my mind, my heart accomplishes good things that help me display self-control.
