Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 30 October 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Discipline – A Pathway To Destiny Fulfilment
TOPIC: Discipline – A Pathway To Destiny Fulfilment (Seeds Of Destiny 30 October 2023)
SCRIPTURE: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Corinthians 9:27
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Discipline is the capacity to withstand present pain in order to access future gain.
Sometime ago, I came across the fact that after every meal, I needed to brush my teeth to get rid of debris and avoid bacteria degeneration and decomposition.
From the day I started it, my commitment to it has been as rigid as the sun to such a point that brushing facility had to be in the office and in every single place, including inside hand luggage so that if I have eaten anywhere, I would be able to handle it there.
My wife has been watching to see whether I could sustain it. Immediately I finish eating, I would go and brush. As tiny as this is, I have been so disciplined keeping the schedule; how much more spiritual things; how much more destiny matters?
I heard God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo define discipline as doing what is required to get what is desired. Discipline is the capacity to say “no” to wrong and “yes” to right without apology.
For instance, it is wrong for someone to sleep for twelve hours in one night. Is he practicing to die? You know, death is permanent sleep; so, oversleep is almost like rehearsal for death. Discipline is differentiating between the legitimate and the profitable because not every legitimate thing is profitable.
No one would send you to prison for eating too much, but eating too much can send you to an early grave. You are fasting and you saw some sumptuous meal and decided to break your fast. That is where discipline is lacking. Discipline is the capacity to withstand present pain in order to access future gain.
And I prophesy upon you today, the grace to do what is required permanently and consistently is released upon you now in Jesus Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Discipline is the capacity to withstand present pain in order to access future gain.
- Discipline yourself to get what you desire.
- Refuse to follow the crowd in the wrong direction.
- Examine yourself; which spiritual exercise have you not been doing for a while now? Restart it!
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to be disciplined in every aspect of my life. I shall fulfil my destiny Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
