Today I am reading Healthy Proportions by Nancy DeMoth in her THE QUIET PLACE. “I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others, I mysellf should be disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:27. Have you ever been in the process of telling others something and you feel convicted by the Holy Spirit? That is so motivating. It is important to keep things in control, such as my attitudes, my tongue, my time and how I treat others. If we don’t eat right, get physcial exercise and enough sleep that control is hard to manage. But you know what? By denying our flesh, we develop an increased appetite for God and our spirits are strengthened to become more alert, more sensitive and responsive to His Spirit.
I agree with your point of view, your article has given me a lot of help and benefited me a lot. Thanks. Hope you continue to write such excellent articles.
