Exercise Self Discipline

 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 


Self discipline is our ability to control or restrain ourselves from all kinds of feelings, impulses, and desires, which includes the desire for physical and material comfort. For Christians, without self-discipline, our appetites for comforts and pleasures can easily become our master and lead us into sin or otherwise hinder us in our spiritual walk.

Prayer for the day:

Lord, we receive your Word today with thanksgiving in our hearts. We know you are speaking to us to exercise self discipline so that our lives are thoroughly equipped for every good work. Give us wisdom to discern between "needs" and "wants". Forgive us for buying things we do not need with the money we do not have to impress the people we do not like. Help us not to be distracted and tempted by our sinful desires for comforts and pleasures but to stay focused and true to what you have called us to. We thank you and bless you in Jesus' name. Amen.
