Power, Might, Or Self Control?
July 11, 2024

DAILY PROVERB:

Proverbs 16:32-33
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

    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 company has a president or leadership. While it is all the employees who, in reality, make the product or provide the service, 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, 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 yourself than to conquer a land and be in control of nothing.

THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

    In the book of James, Chapter 3, it says that the tongue is a small member of the body that no one can tame. Often, one of the smallest body parts can be 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.

Are your emotions and self control given over to God today?

IF YOU ARE JOURNALING:

Ask yourself, what are MY THOUGHTS concerning this Passage, and todays Devotion?

Do I find within this reading a CHALLENGE for my life?

What are one or two things I WILL DO today or this week to accept that CHALLENGE?
