Surrender to ‘God’s Will’ Power

A young woman looks upward, smiling

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness.—2 Peter 1:5-6 NIV

The holidays can test your self-control, whether it’s indulging in a rich dessert or overspending on an extravagant gift. When you feel tempted, rely on “God’s will” power. Focus on the person God wants you to be and ask for His help. You can overcome any temptation.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, renew the gift of self-control within me. Help me to be the person You want me to be.
