Self-NO-Control

All through the book of Judges, we see the people of God sinning, getting punished, returning to God, get forgiven & reinstated,  then sinning again to get punished, looks like an endless cycles. The situation reminds me of a song I got into in my second year of high school, "One step forward two steps backward…" the opening track of the 1976 album War ina Babylon by the legendary Max Romeo and The Upsetters.

My default position was to blame the situation on leadership or its absence; after all when Moses was going to die, he asked God to commission a new leader but Joshua didn’t do that, he left a void. This might be a credible position; the significance of good leadership cannot be overemphasized, they plan and run our communities and uphold law and justice or at least they should.

However how about areas I consider private, where I’m in charge, it’s called self-control or ‘self-no-control’. "You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as you dominant aspiration." - James Allen.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. (NIV) Heb. 12:1&2

Today, through the blood of Jesus, we break the hold of sin and bad habits on our lives; we walk free to live a life well pleasing to God in Jesus’ name. We walk in the overflow of His presence.
