“Losing self-control leaves you as helpless as a city without a wall.” (Proverbs 25:28 CEV)

Ancient cities that had no walls were easy prey for their enemies. A person without self-control is just as defenseless against Satan’s attack. Self-control enables us to counteract external and internal negative forces that can cause us to make wrong choices. We need the Spirit of God working in us to help us do what is right!

Prayer: Lord, I ask You to activate Your Spirit inside me to enable me to turn away from wrong actions. Though the temptation to lose control of my emotions and desires will challenge my faith, I choose to build a wall of self-control around my heart. In Jesus Name, Amen.
