Indeed Aristotle said: “I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.” Most people cannot control their weight, appetite, temper, emotions, sleep, etc, and they blame the devil for that. You do not always cast out the devil as a solution to problems. For example, concerning food, you make up your mind and say things like, “I will go on a diet plan.” Concerning your spouse, believe and say things like: “I will not beat my wife” or “I will not be disrespectful to my husband again.” These are acts from your God-given powerful human will. You must believe that by the grace of God, you can do all things. You can stop adultery and fornication! Flee from all appearances of evil! You can lose weight, if you so desire!
Control your food intake and exercise regularly! Be disciplined! Remember what made Adam/Eve to lose their inheritance in the garden? Food! What demoted Esau? Food! Heaven is calling you to order today. Whatever you cannot control in your life and ministry is a disorder. Become your own governor, president and commander-in-chief.
It is known that women add weight during pregnancy, but the real test is after delivery. Most women become fat, shapeless and unattractive after delivery! Reject this! You can look sweet for your husband and enjoy better marital bliss! Arise, grab discipline and put your life and ministry under control again. HAVE A DAY OF THE WEEK FOR PERSONAL FASTING – FOR FRESH OIL AND FRESH FIRE!
Dear pastor, you can close your services on time. Discipline! Cut away all unnecessary things and you will experience a new move of heaven in that local assembly. 1 Cor. 14:40 declares: “Let all things be done decently and in order.” Bring your life/ministry back to order! Follow the Bible-in-one-year plan at the back of this booklet. If you have not finished your Bible once, you are not a serious believer at all. Do you know that you can finish the Bible in 52 hours by non-stop reading? It takes discipline! Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments. And always remember: Servants of Christ must be masters of themselves! Pray seriously now!
