Law Of Self-Control

You can cultivate a healthy appetite for the things of God. Sometimes we want the things that God doesn’t want for us. Sometimes when we want to do things because we think it will make us happy, but we know it’s not what God wants us to do, and sometimes we do it anyway. So how do we overcome these cravings for the wrong things? We can do it by changing out appetite. Just as with our food, as we eat what we know is unhealthy for us, we start to crave those unhealthy things over the healthy foods. How do we overcome these cravings? By changing the way we eat. As we start to eat less unhealthy foods and replace them with what is healthy, our cravings start to shift over time. The same is true spiritually. If you’ve been taking in unhealthy spiritual food, you can develop a healthy appetite instead by changing what you take in.

Scripture References: Galatians 5:22-23

From Series: "Laws Of Fruit"

Laws govern every major area and system of life. We have laws relating to justice, education, immigration, finance, and family. There are laws of aerodynamics, anatomy, physics, nature, and science. These and other laws communicate a grand design that has been created by a Divine Creator. The work of the Holy Spirit is no different. God has created orderly laws to govern and guide our lives. These laws are defined as the Fruits of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 says; “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Like many laws, the Laws of Fruit that are these fruits of the Spirit, cannot be rivaled or reimagined. There are no other laws that can counter this accepted and undisputed truth. Understanding and applying these laws is essential to your overall growth and pursuit of peace in this life. As we look at each fruit of the Spirit, showing the significance it has in your life, you’ll be able to come and see that living in light of these Laws Of Fruit will help you confront strongholds, rise above adversity, and honor God.
