Trust God and walk in His Spirit
You may struggle to trust another, but you can always trust God. Look to Him for your every answer and He will show you how to rebuild your lives. Lean on Jesus. He is your source of strength.
Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. When we have been redeemed by the blood of lamb, our old ways have been crucified, destroyed, killed – our fleshly passions and desires become a thing of the past (or at least they are supposed to). We are new creatures. Therefore, if we say we live in the Spirit, we must also walk in the Spirit – we must not be conceited, we must not provoke another, we must not envy another.
“But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control. There is no law against such things as these. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have put to death their human nature with all its passions and desires. The Spirit has given us life; he must also control our lives. We must not be proud or irritate one another or be jealous of one another.” – Galatians 5:22-26 Today’s English Version
