Luke 22:42 KJV
[42] Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

This Christmas season time of the year can test your self-control, whether the test is a decadent dessert that threatens your diet, or overspending on the holiday season. A large part of self-control is about will power, or more specifically, doing “God’s will” power. By focusing on Him and asking for His help and strength you can stand firm when you feel tempted.

Lord, especially in this season, help me to be a good steward of the health, relationships, and finances you’ve entrusted to me.  Lord, lead me today into Your Light, and away from my desire to yield to temptation. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
