Topic: The Tragedy Of Lack Of Discipline [Seeds of Destiny Sunday April 15, 2018]

Scripture: He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly. Proverbs 5:23 (The New NIV)

Thought For The Day: Until you can change yourself, there is nothing you can change.

It has been confirmed that God did not create anyone to be a waste in life. No one was created by God to be irrelevant. However, there are enemies of destiny that have the capacity to waste people’s lives on earth and make them useless. And because there is no spare life, it is important for us to make up our minds to eliminate any such enemy that can wreck our lives and destinies.

Now, one of such deadly enemies is lack of self-control.

Please note the following key thoughts on discipline and self-control:
i) There can be no destiny fulfilment without discipline
Esau lacked the discipline to control his appetite, and consequently lost his covenant destiny. He could not say, NO to his stomach, and as a result, he ruined his life.

ii) If you cannot control yourself, you can never control your destiny
If you cannot control yourself when it has to do with anger, immorality, lust, food, sleep, etc., you will never be able to control your destiny. Until you can change yourself, there is nothing you can change.

iii) Self-control is a product of mind control
If you cannot control what goes into your mind, you will never be able to control what flows through your life and consequently, you will never be able to control your destiny.

Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind that your life will not be controlled by the flesh. Wake up when you need to wake up. The devil will not respect you when you do not respect your own word.

Remember this: Until you can change yourself, there is nothing you can change.

1. Decide to control your mind and the flow of thoughts within you.
2. Deliberately respect your will, decisions and resolutions.
3. Bring your flesh under the power of self-control.

Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to put my mind under control. Help me to bring all the activities of my life under the control and discipline of the Holy Spirit, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
