Energy Under Control

By   •   June 26   •   Topics:


A harnessed horse contributes much more to life than a wild donkey. Energy out of control is dangerous; energy under control is powerful. God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness and blessedness. In His wisdom He knows that an uncontrolled life is an unhappy life, so He puts reins on our wayward souls that they may be directed into the “paths of righteousness.” That is what God seeks to do with us; to tame us, to bring us under proper control, to redirect our energies. He does in the spiritual realm what science does in the physical realm. Science takes a Niagara River with its violent turbulence and transforms it into electrical energy to illuminate a million homes and to turn the productive wheels of industry.

Hear a 1-minute message from Billy Graham on discipline and control.

Prayer for the day

Direct all my energy, Father, so that I may be a blessing to others.

    My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will continue to illuminate the path which I should follow. Then give me the God-given determination to grow in servitude to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
