Habits

A habit is a ____________________ or behavior that is repeated to the point that it is almost unrecognizable to ourselves.  

YOUR THOUGHTS BECOME YOUR WORDS

YOUR WORDS BECOME YOUR ACTIONS

YOUR ACTIONS BECOME YOUR HABITS

YOUR HABITS DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER

YOUR CHARACTER MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.”  James Clear, Atomic Habits

KEY THOUGHT: 

IT’S OFTEN THE SMALL THINGS DONE FAITHFULLY, THAT NO ONE SEES, 

THAT RESULT IN THE BIG THINGS THAT EVERYONE WANTS. 

Holy Habits from the Bible

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.  Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)  

I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.  …I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord…
Romans 7:15, 18-20, 24-25 (NLT) 

“Change might not be fast and it isn’t always easy. But with time and effort, almost any habit can be reshaped.” –  Charles Duhigg

This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing, because we need each other! In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.   Hebrews 10:25  (TPT)
