Self-Control Series: How Do I Manage To Control Myself?

It is good for you to always remember that self control is based on your own discretion. Here are some things you may do to control the self: 

By Apostle Pride Sibiya

· Yield to the presence and ministry of the Holy Ghost since genuine self-control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:) which means you must first receive the Holy Spirit. Be willing to obey when the Spirit tugs your conscience because He will. Ps 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which has no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Stay in the word which transforms you and keeps you from sin. Ps 119:9 ¶ BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. Ps 119:11 ¶ Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

- Make sure you set certain boundaries for yourself like “I will never do shady deals” or I will never have extra-marital relationships” and make sure these are made clear to yourself. According to Apostle Asa Gurupira, not everything that comes in your mind must be said or done.

- Decide that you will live to see your boundaries never crossed.

- Do away with all friends that do not want to follow your new faith 1Co 15:33 “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”

Self Control is important
- Keep yourself away from tempting situations and hold on to the fellowship of the saints. Ps 1:1 ¶ Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

- Ask others to help you e.g from your spouse, family or friend. Ec 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone.12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

- When you fail do not give up but seek the help of a leader or pastor and be willing to repent. Never, never, never hide your sin. 1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Conclusion Our way forward is for us to know that no one from America or England or from Pluto or Mars to control us. It is only you that can control you! Your destiny, your eventual success or demise is based on you’re your ability or failure to control yourself.

Prayer for the fruit of self-control.

Thank you, Jesus, may you help us.

Receive Jesus Christ today and go to church for spiritual fellowship.
