Topic: Lack of Self-Control: An Enemy of Destiny

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). Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. (AMP). Ephesians 5:15-16.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Self-control is a product of mind control. When a man cannot control his mind, his life will be out of control.

MESSAGE: It is important to know that God created us to live according to His purpose for our lives. No one was created to be irrelevant on earth. However, there are enemies of destiny that waste people’s lives.

Notably, one of these enemies of destiny is lack of self-control or indiscipline. A life of indiscipline is a destroyer of destiny.

The life that lacks self-control is a life where everything goes; it is a state where a man has no power to do what he wants to do. This kind of lifestyle renders people useless.

Now, I want you to take note of the following key facts:
1. There can be no destiny without discipline.
2. If you cannot control yourself, you can never control your destiny. Until you can change yourself, you cannot change anything around you.
3. Self-control is a product of mind control. When a person cannot control his mind, his life will be out of control (Proverbs 4:23). If you cannot control what goes into your mind, you will never be able to control what flows through your life.
4. If your flesh does not respect your will, there is nothing that will respect your authority in life.

Beloved, it is the strength of your will that undergirds the strength of your destiny. Make up your mind to develop strong destiny through strong decision power.

REMEMBER THIS: Self-control is a product of mind control. When a man cannot control his mind, his life will be out of control.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Absolutely surrender yourself to the control of the Holy Spirit.
2. Learn to say No to the flesh.
3. Surround your life with disciplined people.

PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the grace to say NO to the flesh at all times. I surrender totally to the help of the Holy Spirit, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
