My loves if you lack it, haven’t mastered it, are struggling to attain it, don’t know how to get it, then please realize it takes time. You don’t wake up out the blue and be a master of anything. Start by praying and asking God for it. Ask Him to guide your way and give you strength to act in the fruit of the spirit at all times. Ask Him to show you how to practically apply self control within your life and career.
Self control is a fruit of the spirit. Self control will give you peace in the face of persecution and confidence in the Lord in all His ways.
He loves you, protects, you and provides for you. Trust Him. He loves you so much.
