Morning Prayer, Thursday, July 24, 2014 - GET CONTROL OF YOURSELF
Father God, thank You for helping me to get control of the things I lusted for that we both know was not good for me. Amen
What makes people fight? Is it because you want to have your way whether you are right or wrong? Is it because you want what you want and come hell or high water you will get it? Think about the times when you have wanted something so bad you could taste it and in spite of the fact that you knew your next step was wrong, you stepped through that portal anyway. What steps in your life would you take back if you could? I can think of a few. What were you willing to risk knowing the actions you were about to take were wrong? I can think of a few. The flesh wants what the flesh wants, when it wants it. It's when I learn to control my desires that I controlled my destiny. Whether it was that relationship, the credit card used to shop, or the food I ate that I knew in my heart I should have put down, I had to learn to control the urges that welled up in me. That happened when I got serious about my walk with Christ. That happened when I knew the truth and accepted it as truth. Before then, like so many of us, I was a hot mess. Thank God for deliverance.
