Habit Or Holy Spirit
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It confirms things. It’s how you know if what you heard, or what you’re saying, or what you believe is true. Praying that you will be in PRISM every day – all day. That Word of truth – will confirm things you hear, and things you believe. It will make sure your life is built on truth, that discernment is a skill of yours, that deception is far from you, and your life and words and beliefs are built on the Rock. God reminding me this morning of the importance of habits. Praying that you will review the PRISM Topic: Habits – some popular quotes which contain truth, and what the Bible says about habit. There are really two kinds of habits – the ones you choose, or the ones you fall into. Ask the Holy Spirit what Habits God wants for you. Some people think habits and Holy Spirit are mutually exclusive. It’s not true, but it can be. Habits can propel you or prevent you. Some people have fallen into habits that prevent them from hearing what the Holy Spirit is trying to lead them in. Others say they just follow the Holy Spirit – and don’t worry about habits. But that is sometimes just an excuse for irresponsibility and lack of discipline. The Habits that God has for you will establish you in righteousness. One of my favorite habit quotes. Habit prevails where motivation fails. If you ask God which habits He has for you – they will propel you in His will. And the margin of your time that is not Holy Spirit habit directed can be Holy Spirit whisper and conversation directed. God will lead you in the things He wants you to do today, and part of that is the things He has for you to do every day. The best habit is PiVAT before dinner. It establishes that daily conversation of hearing the Holy Spirit’s voice to direct your steps. And it helps you discern what He has planned for your time - so it’s invested in the purpose He has for you. So it’s not misguided or wasted in fruitless pursuits. Another good thing to do, even right now - do a Habit Check. Ask the Holy Spirit what habits are from him, and which ones are not. The devil will always try to embezzle your habits, siphon off from the good ones that propel you, and try to plant bad ones that prevent you. PiVAT before dinner is what helps you hear God’s voice, not the other. A habit check is very helpful. What about bedtime and wake time, what about work time and play time, and what consumes each? Some people spend a lot of hours at work, but don’t work during much of them. Some spend a lot of time resting, but not a lot of time working, so at harvest they look and find nothing. Their habits of leisure are controlling them, and preventing their success. God has good for you, and the habits and steps He leads you in - will be seedtime and harvest. Praying that you will do a habit check, that you will be like the men of Issachar who understood the times and knew what the people of God should do, and, what they should stop doing. Praying that you will redeem the time, by being faithful in PiVAT before dinner – that daily conversation with your Master Planner. So you grow in the habits of righteousness that The Holy Spirit directs you in, and also whatever He has for you unique to this day and this moment. Remember, His yoke is easy, and His burden is light. Praying that the Holy Spirit will direct your habits, that no habit not from Him, would ever delay you or control you, that you would walk in the joy that His plan brings. Praying that you will be fruitful today, and every day. You can’t even imagine the great adventure that He has waiting for you! It’s really, really good! No, it’s awesome!
Love you all,
