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
It is of utmost importance that we live purposefully and accurately. God never created anybody to be wasted nor did He create anybody to be irrelevant but there are enemies of destiny that want to make people’s lives wasted and useless. Some of them are lack of self control, a life of indiscipline, a life where everything goes, a life where a man has no power to do what he wants to do. It renders people useless. There are three things about discipline and self control i will like you to know.
firstly, there can be no destiny without discipline. A key example here is Esau, the brother of Jacob, who sold his birthright for a morsel of meal. Because Esau had no discipline, his destiny was aborted. He could not say no to his stomach and that ruined his life and destiny
Secondly, if you cannot control yourself, you can never control your destiny. If you cannot control yourself when it comes to anger, the opposite sex, food, sleep etc, then, you cannot control your life and destiny. Until you are ready to change something inside you, you cannot change anything else. There are people who are trying to change the world, without knowing that they are the ones that need to change. An example is that of a man trying to change his wife without knowing that if he changes, his wife will change also.
Thirdly, self control is a product of mind control. When a man cannot control his mind but allows everything to go in and dwell in it, then his life will be out of control. May God not allow your life to go out of control in Jesus’ Name. Always know this, that once you can conquer yourself, you can conquer your world. GOD BLESS YOU.
