Written by Naome Seifu
“Love yourself, be aware of what is stimulating your senses, and above all allow God to fully enter your life. We can’t expect to be successful if we are constantly closing the door on God to satisfy these desires. If we can be disciplined in every aspect of our lives, then and only then will we achieve the desired success we all long for.”
What a word. A friend of mine, Simon Demisiew, is on his journey of self discovery. He reveals the importance of discipline and how obedience leads to in the Kingdom.
The Bible says in Matthew 16:26
“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world
but lost your own soul?”
What worth does the world have for us if gaining the unknown leads to losing your soul?
I’m learning that the gifts that God gives are the most valuable ones you can ever grasp. Some of these gifts can never be tangible. It’s the act of faith in believing that He provides and knows what belongs to us and is meant for us.
Ask yourself, what are the things distracting you from fulfilling the promise of God. God has a great plan for everyone. It’s all about the Kingdom. When you run the race – you’re not running alone.
Speak the word of God over your circumstances – day and night. You honor God when you live your life the way He has destined for you. Remain focused on Him and stay true to His honor.
The greatest rule is the rule of love. If you love one another, others will then know you are one of his disciples.
So let’s exude love, obedience, honor and faith this new year. I too aim to be a better woman, disciple and child of God. In the midst of this life He has so wonderfully given me, I will always remember take honor in living life and living well.
