Leaders must be disciplined Titus 1:62. satan must be told to be quiet (Mark 1:33-343. Harsh words for fools and mules Prov 26:3 4. To have life you keep instruction Prov 10:17 5. Learn to love Discipline Prov 3:11 6. Instruction in God brings rest Psalm 94:12-137..Presumptious leaders bring death 1 Kings 1:5-6 8. Let God choose your habitation Duet 12:8-9 9. Holiness is the first step to a disciplined life in God Lev 20:26
Holiness is the first step (to a discplined life). This means to be set apart, unto him.
We won’t even be able to receive God’s instruction unless we have stepped away from the rest of the world, and its’ way of thinking. Let God rule over your heart (Be Holy!).
And don’t be presumptuous………(an idea that is not known for certain)
It is dangerous to be in presumption. We must learn to seek God about how his word applies to our lives, and the lives of others. We must be careful to not PRESUME what a person should be doing right now. Jesus came to release people from being justifed in keeping laws, because he knew we need to be RESTORED into the Christ-Like person he intended us to be.
The plan for how this happens is HIS Plans not OUR Plans. While teachers, pastors, apostles and others play a role in this process, ultimately the perfect plan our blue print for our lives is up to him, not others.
Do you see the discipline yet? God will remind us to do what he’s told us by allowing us to lose our peace when we don’t listen, or to experience his voice in a magnified way, rising up within our hearts. If we ignore it, we will experience loss of peace, pain and sorrow over many lost hours and days we could have been serving him and following his direction.
“Father please, help and allow us to lead a disciplined life, one that glorifes you Father! Thank you that while we are not saved by rules and regulations, We do need to have a disciplined life to have success, and you want so much for us to have this discipline that makes uf more effective for your Kingdom! So we thank you for your discipline today!
You are such a good Father …” In Jesus’ name. amen
