MFM Daily Devotional 7th August 2022 OUTLINE

Temperance has to do with self-restraint. That is, one having the ability to subdue his appetite and passion. No man can be considered strong in the true sense of it who has not yet mastered the art of temperance. It is a good thing for one to be blessed with temperance by the Spirit of God. Walking the pathway of temperance leads to destiny fulfilment, joy, peace with God and with oneself.

Joseph is a perfect example of a man saturated with the fruit of temperance. Mrs Portiphar offered herself to this young man on a silver platter. Many young men who lack selfcontrol would have fallen for that satanic bait prepared to ruin his destiny and colour his story with the dark paint of regrets and sorrow. Had Joseph displayed lack of self-control, which is the problem with many believers today, he would never have reached the throne. He would have died in the prison.

Beloved, if you don’t want to be a casualty in this Christian race, you must anchor the totality of your life to the current of temperance as discharged by the Holy Spirit. Self-control is only bestowed by the Holy Spirit. No man can ever please God, succeed in the Christian walk, excel in life and fulfil appointment with destiny without self-control.

Failure to cultivate the Holy Spirit’s fruit of temperance will make you a signboard for the works of the flesh as listed in the book of Galatians, “… Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings…” (Galatians 5:19-21).

Whosoever engages in any of these fleshly acts will definitely not make heaven. Pray therefore for the infilling power of the Holy Spirit. In case you are not saved yet, repent today. There is a simple exercise I would like you to do. Take a pen and list the areas of your life that you lack self-control.

Go before the Lord in fasting and prayer and ask for His help to overcome these weaknesses. Pray until you have an assurance of positive changes in those.
