According to Psychology Today, self-control is "the ability to manage one's impulses, emotions, and behaviors to achieve long-term goals". But where does this ability come from? What motivates this ability to control one's self?
Consider the multi-billion dollar self-help industry. So much of it centred around controlling, managing and maintaining what Psychology Today described as "impulses, emotions and behaviours". Clearly, most human beings are struggling with self-control on some level. And I would suggest to you that it stems from a deeper issue. One that goes past physical and emotional cravings and desires, and centred more on a spiritual struggle.
This week, as we conclude our Cultivate series, "Character with Spiritual Evidence", we'll discover how God's Holy Spirit can provide a level of self-control than no self-help book could ever offer you. We'll see that giving God control, is the key to self-control.
