The Discipline to Win

I must admit when I hear the word discipline it does not bring fun, warm, fuzzy thoughts to mind. Webster’s dictionary defines discipline as orderly or prescribed conduct, or pattern of behavior, or self-control. Focusing on discipline may not be the most exciting thing we could do, but what if I told you that your ability to develop a habit of discipline is key to mastering your craft, maximizing your gifts and elevating your life? It takes deliberate consistent effort to move your dreams and goals from your mind into reality. What does God say about discipline? Scripture says that God has given us a spirit of self-discipline. This means that we are already equipped with the ability to put in the work, time and effort that is required in order to live out our purpose. Hebrews 12:11 realistically tells us that no discipline feels good while it is happening, but (here’s my favorite part) God gives us a promise of a peaceful harvest of right living. In exchange for practicing self control and doing things God’s way we’ll have tranquility, rest from within, and we will be righteous, or just in conduct and character. Now that’s some good news! What are some practical ways that we can build a healthy alliance with discipline? The first and most important thing is to read the word daily. God’s word is Powerful and transformative. Developing a daily habit of reading scripture is a sure way to discover God’s views and instructions for us on any given matter. The second thing we need to do is apply God’s word. Scripture tells us to not merely hear God’s word, but to do what his word says. When reading scripture ask yourself “what does this mean for me”? The Bible isn’t just a book of cool abstract stories. God is speaking directly to you through his word, and it is relevant and applicable to you currently. The next steps flow directly out of self discipline. You must remain consistent. This can be done by developing structure, and creating goals and deadlines. Be deliberate and intentional about how you spend your time. Give special attention to your goals and manage your activities day to day in ways that propel you toward accomplishing your goals. Discipline helps to ensure that you stay goal oriented and purpose driven. Let’s put into practice discipline and watch God’s best for our lives manifest! AFFIRM IT:

  • I have the discipline to win!

  • I already possess all that I need in order to accomplish all my goals

  • I am committed to partnering with God in order to walk in my divine purpose

  • I am decisive

  • I am intentional

  • I win at everything I put my mind too

SCRIPTURES: Hebrews 12:11 Proverbs 3: 11-12 1 Timothy: 1:7
