Daily Dose Of Boldness

Your Daily Dose of Boldness – Conquer Thyself

Conquer Thyself

The author, Napoleon Hill, once said, “If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.” Self-control may be the most difficult of the Fruit of the Spirit to master. Why? Because it’s an everyday endeavor.

There are many enticing and distracting items or situations that beckon to us all the time. We continually battle our natural human desires for immediate self-satisfaction. We over-indulge with food; we binge watch T.V., we have an extra glass of wine when we really ought to have an extra tall glass of water. We sleep in, we go back for seconds and thirds, and we shop until we drop. We give in to our basest instincts on a daily, if not hourly, basis, and then wonder, “How did I ever get into this mess!?” If you don’t control your self, your self will control you and pull you further from the Kingdom of Heaven and God’s purpose for your life.

God asks us to act athletes and strive for the ultimate prize of redemption and eternal life. In 1st Corinthians 9:25-27 (NLT), Paul wrote:

“Remember that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you will win. All athletes practice strict self-control. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize… So, I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step … I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.”

Control of self is dang near impossible on your own, so you desperately need God’s power to help you out. You need Him as your life coach, the Bible as your playbook, and the deep desire to do the hard work, control self, and make the necessary sacrifices to reach your eternal goal.
