For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Notice it says sound judgment and discipline.
How are we to receive these daily Heavenly necessities in our lives?
Sound judgment can only be achieved through constant tutorship of the Holy Spirit and obedience unto our Divine Teacher. The more we listen and obey the more He will bless us with Divine wisdom in every aspect of our lives.
Think of it like going to school.
You must learn the instruction from your grade one teacher before you graduate to grade two. Now for those of us that are old enough, reflect how much you have progressed in knowledge since grade one.
So too it is with the Holy Spirits school of Divine life.
We must start out small with baby steps in our early walk and then sometimes slowly and sometimes in leaps and bounds walk towards Heaven in the knowledge and wisdom of Heavenly citizenship. Joseph son of Jehovah.
Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah. The metamorphosis that occurs in us is the amazing abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control
Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing this difficult student with Your Divine wisdom, You amazing patience and Your ultimate strength to become the child my Beloved Heavenly Father desires me to be. Thank You for gently nagging me to discipline Your lessons into my daily life. I praise You in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
