The Light Daily Devotional – The Holy Spirit and Indiscipline
Focus: The Holy Spirit and Indiscipline
WORD FOR TODAY
The Holy Spirit does little in the midst of indiscipline. The promises of God will only become reality whenever you accept the word of God to be disciplined enough in playing your part and operating in the premises of His promises for your life!
“Happy are those whom you discipline, LORD, and those whom you teach from your law. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug for the wicked.” (Psalm 94:12-13 NLT)
No man comes to significance in the journey of destiny without discipline. At a point, David had an opportunity to kill King Saul; but He would not do so because the word of the Lord came to him “touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm”. This word remains even when it seems King Saul is acting against the word of God. The act of David in this case is referred to as Discipline.
The Host of Heaven couldn’t plead for Moses over the verdict of God over him; that he will not lead the Israelites into the promised land. God honours His word because it is settled. The grace made available to us does not give us the license to sin but to run away from sin (Titus 2:11-12). There is a limit to what the Holy Spirit will do in your life if you are living in disobedience.
Every word of God coming to you is meant to help you to identify your boundaries. The ability to keep within the boundaries of God’s word for you is the required discipline to fulfil God’s purpose. There is no doubt in the fact that God is set to do new things in your life this year; you must cooperate with Him to do His good pleasure in your life.
+ Will you operate within the boundaries of God’s word for your life?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to keep within the boundaries of your word for my life in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: There is a limit to what God can do in your life if you are not disciplined!
Have a Superb Year Ahead!
