The enemy’s hope for Christians is that we will either be so ineffective we have no testimony, or we’ll ruin the one we have.
According to Your Word, a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and You examine all our paths. The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cord of his sin holds him fast. He will die for a lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly (Prov. 5:21-23).
Lord, self-discipline is a fruit of the Spirit. Please fill me with Your Spirit and empower me with a self-discipline only You can give (Gal. 5:22-23).
God, please help me to love You with my whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, for this is Your priority for my life (Mark 12:30).Break my heart when I even think of doing what is dishonorable, Lord.
