'INCONTINENT'

"He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls" - (Proverbs 25:28)
.
Imagine what it would look like for a man to be like a broken down city without walls of protection - anything or anyone can invade such life.
.
The perilous time is characterized with the spirit of incontinence - lack of self-control or self restraint. A man that fails to control self won't be able to tame his appetite for food, sex, pleasure or sleep. It is not everything that the body desire that it should be given.
.
Are you able to control self in your life?
.
Some people find it difficult to control their appetite for sex, sleep or pleasure. Loving pleasure or living in it makes you dead while you live (1 Timothy 5:6). And sleeping too much makes you poor (Prov. 20:13) - mental, spiritual, financial and so on.
.
More so, you can't go far in life and in your walk with God if you fail to embrace self-control. Pleasure is seeking comfort when you ought to be striving and over-sleeping is bad when you ought to be laboring - reading, praying or sowing into your future.
.
The effect of lack of self-control in this last days is that people will become perpetrators of the evil associated with what they can't control. Cases of rape, domestic violence and sexual abuse is on the increase.
.
Lack of self-control over food makes you a glutton; incontinence over sex makes you a sex addict or a rapist and when you lack self-control over pleasure, it makes you dead while you live.
.
Is the stronghold of incontinence noticeable in your life? Pull it down in prayers. Dare to be a Daniel who purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the king's meat nor with the wine which he drank.
.
Until you're determined to embrace self-control, you'll bow to every pleasure that comes your way.
