Topic: The Enemy of Destiny Called Indiscipline [Friday March 17, 2017]
Scripture: Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people). Ephesians 5:15 (AMP)
Thought For The Day: There can be no destiny without discipline.
God’s Plan for our lives is to live purposefully and accurately. God never created anybody to be wasted or irrelevant. However, there are enemies that render people’s destinies useless on earth and in eternity.
One of these enemies is the life of indiscipline or lack of self-control. Esau sold his birth-right to his younger brother, Jacob for food. He could not control his appetite and so, he ruined his destiny (Genesis 25:34).
There can be no destiny without discipline. If you cannot control yourself, you can never control your destiny; until you can change something inside you, there is nothing you can change. There are people who are trying to change the world without knowing that they first have to change themselves.
Self-control is a product of mind control (Proverbs 4:23). If you cannot control what enters your mind, you cannot control what flows through your life and destiny. When the flesh rules your life, your future is not guaranteed.
Beloved, you must learn to say “No” to the flesh. Surrender yourself absolutely to the control of the Holy Spirit.
Remember this: There can be no destiny without discipline.
1. Desist from wrong associations. Surround yourself with positive and disciplined people.
2. Be disciplined in the study of the Bible, praying and fasting.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for grace to be disciplined in my walk with You. I say No to the flesh and its works, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
