Topic: Controlling Your Passion
Today Tuesday, 13 June 2017
SCRIPTURE: And Samuel said, How can I go? If Saul hear it, he will kill me… 1 Samuel 16:2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until you are able to control your emotion, you cannot control your motion.
It has been established one of the reasons many people lose out in destiny is the inability to control their passion.
A typical example of this was King Saul. When God told Samuel to anoint someone from the family of Jesse as king, Samuel was afraid and told God that if Saul heard it, he would kill him. This was because King Saul was a man of uncontrollable temperament. Saul was a man who could kill a prophet out of anger; this was why he lost his destiny.

Beloved, until you have control over your passion, you lose control of your destiny; until you can control your emotion, you cannot control your motion; until you take charge of your flesh, you cannot take charge of your destiny.
It is sad to note that there are many people who are under the control of the flesh. There are people who are always under pressure to quarrel. This is a pathway of losing out in destiny.
My counsel is, make up your mind to put your passion under control in order to maximise your destiny.
Remember this: Until you are able to control your emotion, you cannot control your motion.
1. Never allow the flesh to take the driver’s seat of your life and destiny’
2. Deny every manifestation of the flesh in your life.
3. Receive grace to be controlled by the Spirit of God.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the grace to put my flesh under control. Help me to forgive everyone that has offended me, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
