How discipline your flesh

By On 8:11 AM





 

I've been in a cycle of yielding more to God, and sometimes it does not feel good. 


Can I just be honest? 


Sometimes I want to just hide without any responsibilities, and just be at peace with the. growth in life that I have achieve in healing from the things that tried to break me, but I know that is not what my daily mindset encounters when I am woke up in the middle in the early hours of the morning being recharged by The Holy Ghost to work on my purpose, and to spend more time at His feet. 




I often have to remind myself that God has placed a lot within me, and He requires a lot of me. I can not slack, and expect things just to come because I am chosen, and called to a divine purpose within the Kingdom. I have to work diligently on my relationship with God, and I have to show up with a persistent will to see things through even when things seem to be unclear around me. 


 This is a key scripture to focus on when you are filling overwhelmed in holding yourself accountable in working daily on the vision, and within your purpose. 

“But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:48‬ ‭KJV‬‬



The one thing that I do more to keep my flesh under discipline is I reject what is taking time away from me spending time with God, and in His word. I found that I was spending a little bit to much time on TikTok to unwind for bed, and that lasted for some hours, and that got me to thinking that a greater discipline in this area was needed for me. 


Are there things in your life that are becoming a major or minor distraction that you need to get under some discipline? 


When I found myself confronting this area of distraction in my life I really fit not think too much of it at first until I noticed how much dead time flew by, and I told myself that something had to give, and I was thinking to myself well I did everything I was suppose to do, and I can afford to have some down time.


But I also had to think of the amount of time I just was on one app scrolling my little fingers away laughing, and not having a care ini the world in that moment. Now I am not at all saying that the app is not comical but I have to set a timer to block off the time that I will allow myself to be on TikTok see this is me being accountable, and dishing out self awareness, and discipline in this area of my life. 


Sometimes fasting can look like pushing back your plate... But it can also look like fasting from social media, and anything else that is distracting you, and taking your eyes off of the vision, and the purpose that God has called you to do. 


My posture before God was unbalanced so I had to really draw back into that secret place. The first thing that I found myself doing was sitting in my prayer closet this morning, and really undressing my concerns, and behaviors to Him. I had to. remind myself that God cares about what I am going through, and that He also cares about how I feel. 


I want to encourage you to get before God, and to undress your heart before Him. release all that is on your heart and allow Him to minister to you right where you are. God ia always concerned about you, and He is always ready to Listen to the things that ia on your mind. 



Renenber.... 

“looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬


You will be able to see things mote efficiently when you remove anything that will try to bring distraction in your life. Be mindful to discipline yourself daily in the world of God, and to spend time with the Father.
