2 Timothy 2:17 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and self-control
Probably the hardest thing for us to control is ourselves, right? Contrary to what “sounds” right we hardly if ever want to control our “self.” I mean really, if it were easy to do so then God wouldn’t have sent us His power to help us, right? We wouldn’t need God’s power to accomplish it. I do. I know that without God’s power of self-control I would have none. It’s hard to deny your “self” something whether it’s eating a doughnut or screaming your head off in frustration. For me either would be impossible without God’s power!
