Align Yourself with God
So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Galatians 5:16).
Everything we have comes from God: our abilities, our giftedness, our character qualities. The same is true when it comes to discipline. But when we think of discipline, or self-control, so often we forget that it comes from God and we focus solely on the “self”. When we do that, we don’t discover self-control; instead, we find ourselves spinning out of control. It’s by giving our ‘self’ to God that we discover the kind of self-control, the kind of discipline that leads to new levels of living. That’s the key to true discipline. It’s about aligning ourselves with God so we can discover who He has created us to be.
Thank God for giving you the ability to have discipline. Align yourself to His spirit by coming under His authority and admitting to Him that you need His direction.
Have you gotten under God’s authority so you can live by His Spirit? Align yourself with God, and discover what it is like to live by God’s spirit and power.
“Not by might nor by power, but by My spirit,” says the Lord Almighty. (Zechariah 4:6)
