Self-control -the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Yahusha the Son of YHUH, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of needHebrews 4:14-16
As we observe the times we are currently in, the ability to have self-control heavily lacks within the world. Mostly due to everyone wanting to live out their heart’s desires. Which ranges from lusting after women, money, or simply power/position. Whatever it may be, without self-control anyone could fall into temptation. Even our beloved Head/Chief YAHUSHA was in all tempted as we are and still was without sin. His perfect example was our blueprint and cheat sheet to know that it is accomplishable.
As it is written he that has no rule over his own spirit (or in other words) “He that has no self-control” is like a city that is broken down with no walls. Meaning anyone can come into this person’s life swaying with temptation and ultimately become successful at doing so. With all the talk with promiscuity lately and the type of trouble it brings. One challenge that has seemed to have surfaced is the “He didn’t know” challenge. With “Trans-women” telling their story of how they seeming tricked a guy into believing that they are indeed women. Now a man with no self-control, who chases after looks and the bodily features of a woman. That man could ultimately become a victim of this. It has become fairly easy for them to blend in due to many sisters wearing wigs, excessive makeup, and other cosmetics they use to beautify themselves. In closing, the lack of Self-Control will enviably lead a person down the broad path which only leads to destruction.
