God is All Powerful
Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Psalm 51:5
No one likes to make the same mistake twice, let alone over and over again, but isn’t there something you stumble over time and time again? A behavior or way of thinking you’d like to change, but when given the opportunity, you fall back to old habits and familiar patterns…

Because we are human, even the most admirable will fail at times, but when the Holy Spirit lives through us then, and only then, do we have the power to live in obedience and joy. If you embrace this truth and believe it in your heart, you can be transformed -- replacing evil desires with those good and pleasing to God!
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, Titus 2:11-12
Because God is all powerful, through Christ, we can live in self-control
