I recently started an at home workout called, 22 Min Hard Corp. It is a military boot-camp style workout. This came after the Lord gave me a personal word about, “staying Focused,” this year.
But as I was in prayer this morning, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “You are in the Lords Army and your life requires discipline.” I immediately felt a download from the Holy Spirit.
Friends, this is an hour where we have to have discipline in our lives! The Lord is not merely suggesting it, but rather it is a requirement for success in this new season. Laziness will no longer suffice.
The enemy has kept so many people distracted by all these little “fires” that we keep running around trying to put out, (myself included.) That we have lost focus on what we are called to do. We have let the cares of the world and our circumstances get us off track.
So many, have burnt themselves out on non sequential things.
(Things that don’t matter in the big picture) Its time to get your house in order, both physical and spiritual. It is time to de-clutter and downsize, getting rid of unnecessary things in your life. Its time to prepare yourself. Its time to establish some self discipline in your life! Once you’ve created a routine, once you have structure in your life, then God can bring His order into your life. I just heard the Lord say, “Your life lacks order, because it lacks discipline.” You need a productive routine in your life, something that is going to move you forward into the things of God and your family.
Its time to get serious about your health and your purpose. Stop worrying so much about where God is taking you and start building a life of structure and discipline, so that when you get there, you can handle the pressure. Otherwise, the same old tactics the enemy uses to keep you distracted now, will continue to work and delay your destiny even longer!
What does discipline look like? It can be creating a routine of prayer time, family time, or an exercise routine. Putting yourself on a schedule, but still remaining flexible because life happens. People with discipline have learned the power of saying, “No” to anything that distracts them from what they are focused on. They also tend to “complete” what they start, a big area of weakness for many. But be encouraged God is giving grace to those who repent and start moving forward again.
Oh my friends, I pray this word, encourages you and convicts your heart to do those things, you know God is speaking to you. Let this be a word of exhortation and instruction from the Father who loves you dearly and wants you to fulfill all that He has for you!
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
