GALATIANS 5: 22-23 NIV
22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23:gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Self control is simply manly courage, fully fit or ready to act calmly in emergency. It’s the man at the helm in complete power. Also, self control is the man who is self-happy because he is self bossed.
It is managing your self to do the right thing even in a free environment. You can be what you want if you can take action to become it.
For the intricate force of the brain cluster about each other seeking a leader. And the man power steps out and takes command. First of all, you are what you are. Rude hands never shaped you.
We were created by God to be strong with a capacity for self control which is the cornerstone of divinity. Rule your own self and you immediately find yourself in the centre of things, for you draw others your way. While under absolute self-control, you turn out deeds worthy and unending.
Self control must be made up of patience, the ability to keep still when you feel like talking right-out, and the iron holding down of your own self for the sake of bigger hours. No man ever wins anything without first winning himself.
You are a strong human bundle of passion and power. Your mixing of these things in wise proportion and mastering them will mold you into a sure success. Self control is a very necessary tool for success.
