We are instructed “to be sober, be vigilant.” In other words, we are told to exercise some self-control and discipline in our lives to be ready to battle the enemy. There will be days when we don’t feel like praying and spending time with God. We will be tempted to sin and give in to our fleshly desires. However, a person exhibiting self-control is sure and steady, even in the toughest of circumstances. A self-controlled believer never neglects their time with the Lord.
