Avoiding Excess – Joyce Meyer Devotional Today, 19th November 2023
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
— Philippians 4:5 (KJV)
Topic: Avoiding Excess (Paraphrased)
The Bible warns against going to extremes or excess. We should always exercise the fruit of self-control that we have been given.
We often engage in activities that lead to our own misery because we do them too much. Anything that is not wrong is ours to enjoy, but when we indulge in something excessively, it can become harmful. Fortunately, self-control is something we can utilize. We can talk too much, work too much, eat too much, spend too much money, and do a thousand other things wrong. Let’s choose wisely and act in moderation at all times.
Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You for the fruit of self-control. I’m sorry for any excess I have allowed in my life, and I ask You to help me do all things in moderation.
