Habits

Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. (Jeremiah 35:15 NIV)

 The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines a habit as a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance;  an acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary; a manner of conducting oneself.

If we examine our lives, how many habits do we have?  If you really think about it, it can become mind boggling. I guess, depending on how old you are, you have a lifetime of acquired habits that have been formed by conditioning.  The condition of your childhood, the condition of your health, the condition of your socio-economic surroundings, the condition of your level of education, etc..  The things and people that are around us impact us.  The repetitive things are the things that eventually become habits with us.

The Indefensible Weapon

“In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame, deliver me in you righteousness.  Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue, be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.  Since you are my rock and my fortress,  for the sake of your name lead and guide me.”  (Psalm 31: 1-3)

You are there, I know you hear me. I know you answer prayers, you have taken care of me my whole life.  My rock, my salvation, my countenance, my comfort, my peace, you are always there.  I depend on you for everything.  This is such a wonderful confidence. This is absolute truth and Satan turned it into a deceptive tool.

Folly’s Rollercoaster

Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars. (Proverbs 9:1)

Have you ever felt that you are being pulled into diferent directions at the same time? I have been living this way for the past few weeks feeling like I am on a roller coaster and God has given me insight into exactly what is happening.

My Valentine

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Luke 10:27)

I have read this verse many times under many different circumstances. Today, I read it and the same as every time before, I got a new message from it. Now, this is the scripture that Jesus gave us citing as the most important commands that God has given to us, His children, to live by.

Today I read this with the subconsciousness of Valentine’s Day looming in the background and I suddenly thought about all the people out there in the world who are thinking about their spouses, their significant others, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters and wonderered if any thought about their creator.

Repentance

“Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. (Hosea 6:1) NIV

Are you trying to keep something hidden or have a secret? Is there something in your past that continually haunts you? Is there a deep regret about something that you did or perhaps didn’t do when you should have? Would you like to be free from it?

Most of us don’t like to admit that we are wrong, that we have done something wrong or even that what we thought was wrong. We suffer from this thing called human pride. It’s a sneaky little thing that runs around in the best camouflage attire on the market.

In God We Trust

How many times did the Israelites go down in flames because they formed alliances with other nations and peoples instead of turning to God Himself?

Why is it we turn to those that are nearest to us or our way of thinking to help us in our times of need? Continue reading

The Unexpected Stop

The Bible says that we will face trials. God uses events, people, tragedy, suffering and situations to teach us and mold us into the people He created us to be.

Some of us are more hard-headed than others and He has to keep bringing the same things to our attention until it finally sinks in and we can say, ok God, I get it. Continue reading
