UNDERSTANDING DISCIPLINE

Beloved, the difference between where you are today and where you will be tomorrow is a product of your saying “NO” to some things and saying “YES” to other things. It is not possible to see distinction without determination.

SCRIPTURE: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Corinthians 9:27

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Discipline is the willingness to pay the price or the capacity to give what it takes to arrive at excellence.

Discipline has been confirmed to be a major key or pathway to a life of excellence and distinction.

From our anchor Scripture, discipline is seen as being hard on yourself so it can be easy in life. Discipline is rejecting the unprofitable in favour of the profitable; it is delaying gratification to establish satisfaction.

Discipline is living a life that is under control, a life that is scheduled, a life that is connected to productive and profitable routine. You know, routine determines result; schedule determines success, and rules make rulers. That is why you cannot see a person who is a rule breaker become a real ruler.

Beloved, the difference between where you are today and where you will be tomorrow is a product of your saying “NO” to some things and saying “YES” to other things. It is not possible to see distinction without determination.

Discipline is the willingness to pay the price or the capacity to give what it takes to arrive at excellence. Discipline or determination affects excellence.

God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo defined discipline as doing what is required to get at what is desired. So, it’s doing what it takes to get to where you want to be. If the top is your desire, then what to do to get there is called discipline. There is no distinction for the undisciplined.

Remember this: Discipline is the willingness to pay the price or the capacity to give what it takes to arrive at excellence.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Make up your mind to embrace discipline at all cost.
  2. Refuse to be lazy in order not to end in mediocrity.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You give me the grace to be disciplined at all cost. I reject the life of laziness and compromise, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Embrace the discipline of excellence. Begin to pay attention to minute details in all you do. Culled from “21 UNCOMMON KEYS TO FINANCIAL OVERFLOW” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Numbers 11-15.

AMAZING FACT: Although the lion is known as “the king of the jungle,” lions do not live in jungles; they live only in grasslands and plains.
