Power, Might, Or Self Control?  

OCTOBER 16 & 17, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 16:32He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

       Some people believe that brute force and power are the answer to everything. However, for strength and power to be effective, you need to have someone with a clear mind and someone who is very much in control leading it.

      Every army needs a General to make the decision where, when, and how to fight. When the war is complete, the men who fought often come home to a hero’s welcome, but in the history books, the General is remembered for winning the war.

    Every company has a president or leadership. While it is all the employees that in reality make the product or provide the service, nevertheless, when the job is finished, the leadership receives the pat on the back.

    In the same way, if a company fails or a war is lost, the shame for this failure or loss is placed firmly on the shoulders of the leadership as well. Sometimes when a business fails due to a poor decision, someone is held financially, and in some cases criminally responsible. Again, this hardship normally falls on the owners, President, CEO, or leadership.

    It is a good thing to be strong and brave. Still yet, it is nobler, and often a harder thing to be in control and wise. It is far better to rule your emotions and be in control of self, than to conquer a land and be in control of nothing.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    In the book of James in chapter 3, it says the tongue is a little member that no man can tame. One of the smallest members of the body seems often the hardest to control. Therefore, if you cannot control the muscle of the tongue, you had better learn how to control the emotion that wags it.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
