Restraint

Are You on Track to Your Destiny?

Posted on Updated on

Where there is no vision the people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. Proverbs 29:18

…the people cast of restraint, the people let loose, the people are not directed…

The word restraint or restrained is not attractive.  It doesn’t feel welcoming or comforting.  A normal reaction would be to CAST off or FIGHT restraint.  Initially, “restraint” doesn’t bring thoughts of freedom.  And freedom is what we are made for.

A train is restrained in that it must ride the rails of it’s tracks.  It only travels where the tracks lead.  In truth it could move along without them but a train driving without tracks would slip and slide.  It would move, but slowly and in many directions.  In contrast, a train on rails is focused, gains speed and quickly reaches it’s destination.  It’s restrained but purposeful!

If one would heed

be alert to and take action with

the instruction of wisdom,

the revelation or vision they have been given,

they can lay track

restrain themselves, limit where they put the focus and energy, know what to say “yes” to, direct their path

and will reach their destination. 

Attain their destiny!

Freedom allows us to let loose!  But wisdom in freedom allows us to choose how to restrain ourselves in order to give our life focus and direction.

Seek wisdom, heed it’s instruction and lay the tracks!

Reaching your destiny depends on your vision and self restraint!

What is your vision? What has Wisdom instructed you towards?

In what ways can you restrain (direct) yourself in order to see your vision realized?
