Factor 9 ~ self-control

What is that special power that we need so greatly?

The dictionary defines self-control as “the ability to check or regulate, to restrain, and to govern self in all aspects of life.”

We can possess purity of thought, purity of heart, and purity of life even in this day and age by controlling our thoughts with the power of the Spirit of God blessing our minds. 

“… overcome evil with good.”  [Romans 12:21]

Keeping the mind busy with thoughts that will elevate and ennoble one’s character is the formula to success here.  To do just that try memorizing God’s Holy Word, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee,”  [Psalm 119:11]

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”  [Proverbs 23:7

“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord?  or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart”  [Psalm 24:3,4]

Victory through Christ ~ what a majestic experience!  Prayers that will produce high dividends for the kingdom of God are ours to experience and enjoy now.
