I realize this sounds hard. Delaying gratification, doing what’s right, surrendering your will. It might seem like teeth-gritting, white-knuckling stuff. But it isn’t.
As we’ll discover, though building self-control requires effort, it gets easier as you go. Eventually, it can feel like gliding.
In a beautiful twist of biblical irony, submission leads to victory.
Surrender produces freedom. As you are liberated from the tyranny of self, you’re able to experience God’s best for your life.
