Discipline is really hard. What gives us the balance in life we need? Without constantly praying for help in our weaknesses we will be overcome by them. Sometimes we can get on top of a weakness and get control to find a weakness somewhere else. You will never be strong at everything, all the time. If your weakness is overeating, pray for discipline. If your weakness laziness, pray for help to become more active. If your weakness is disorganization, pray for organization. If your weakness is overspending, pray for wisdom in spending. It is not always a physical weakness but often always a mental. Train your mind in the Word of God and his promises for you and your life.
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 11:18-20
