Hello dear friend, welcome to our site in the name of Jesus Christ. Today we will see from the Bible how to control yourself.
Friends, the world we live in is God’s accursed world, and Satan, the ruler of this world, tries to turn us against God through various tricks, sometimes through the people he worships, sometimes through pressure, but the Bible says that in these tempting times one who will control himself will be worthy for the crown of life.
Friends, if we control ourselves in this world from all kinds of troubles and anger and the works that are against God’s will, then God will bless us and give us a place in His kingdom.
If you ever feel like you can’t control yourself, read the Bible with prayer. You will be able to control yourself when God’s Word reign in your heart. In this regard, Paul says that if we find fault with others, we should do it with humility so that the Lord Jesus may be glorified through our way of life.
Let us look at some Bible verses that will help us to self-control.
