If the temple is the body, and if we can not stop a habit long enough, to cry, out to the Father, without the habit, then we are dragging idols in the temple. When you come to the Father in prayer, or into the holy place it should be from a pure heart, and this is a lesson we should learn from the Bible. Maybe this is truly a representation of us today. There’s so many habits, and I want to let you know that there is hope. With this year I pray for guidance and thanksgiving for making it this far. I pray a shield around everyone reading, that lives for the Father.
Encourage others to leave habits at the door when approaching the Father in prayer. No one is perfect except the One that we share.
Father cover our minds from manipulation and corruption and guide everyone that seeks You. Thank you Father, for the things, I already know you provided, before I even asked. I pray distractions are so obvious, they no longer have any authority, in my life, or over my mind. I rebuke all of them in Jesus name. Help me remove the idols that have in anyway slipped, into my temple, into my life, whether it be pride, lust, or anything not of the Father. I pray for supernatural blessings, wisdom, and knowledge, to all that need it. Prepare me, prepare them and everyone struggling.
Key takeaway if we are the temple and it upset Jesus so much that idols and buying and selling were brought in then shouldn’t we come in the temple pure from habits.
This is why pray should be before phone and or any other habit. Love you all prayers are always appreciated
Don’t think of a brother or sister as your enemy. Love each other as Christ loves us forgive often and don’t be divided from praying for one another. The Father will help anyone, forgive anyone, and it doesn’t need to be for them it’s for your own soul. Let the bitterness, and resentment go. Build one another up. Don’t be like the rest, of the world. Like one angry person can change the atmosphere of a place. We are called to be the light in a dark place.
I don’t know about anyone else, but the world has been a dark place lately. I pray for peace over anyone reading and I pray for all that wish anyone harm to be confused and interrupted in any proceedings. I pray for protection for those still struggling with their own battles Lord I struggle and pray for everyone in their own battles. I pray courage and I pray for revelations about your armor for these days ahead
I encourage you if you have any habits even if you think it’s a good habit if it’s a habit it can replace The Father then sacrifice this habit for one day and truly seek the Father.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me phillipians 4:13
Don’t be divided stand out and be a light so others can be saved.
The closest I’ve ever been to a black bear cub and mother and they were, more afraid of us, than we were of them. Go in this time of the year and keep focused on the most important thing and that’s keeping your relationship and heart right with the Father. Tomorrow is never promised for anyone, one thing I’ve learned in life is to do my best to always stay humble. I’ve also learned to stay focused on several goals, instead of idols if I become too addicted I have to quit and make the Father more important once again. I fight addictions just like most but until we learn to fight them all, this includes any addiction not just drugs. People can be addicted to anything they put more energy into instead of the Father. I’m not here to point fingers cause I still fight against eating and overeating certain foods with chemicals, and if you don’t believe that’s some kind of drugs that are added to make us more addicted or sick or both. I think that we all struggle with this because it involves the cross we all carry that is our flesh.
The flesh is involved when someone is addicted to something, and they feel emotional when the thing is taken away. Pray for your family to overcome these addictions, and I will pray for you, will you pray for me? I’ve felt this way about sugar before, just as much, if not more than for a cigarette, it was because I used sugar as a crutch instead of Christ all the way through. I did fast the second two days of quitting but gave in to sugar. I can proudly say that was months ago so I’ve been cigarette free since the end of august. The Lord helped majorly, but often time like me we lean on other habits that can cause damage to our health, spiritually, physically, and mentally. Keep fighting, the devil will come at you with small addictions, to try and drag you back down, the same road. You can do this, and so can I. I plead the blood of Jesus over everyone reading these words.
I What, monster? What am I talking about? This is a metaphor I use to describe the flesh, or our evil desires. I am not in no way calling anyone a monster, I’m calling bad habits mosters. Everytime, someone entertains, or gives in to the negative thoughts, they are feeding the monster. When someone uses, and abuses drugs they are feeding the monster. The more we feed the monster, the more the monster demands and craves. I fed the monster cigarette after cigarette for 20 years, until one day last year I had had enough, and that’s when I just quit. I was fed up with spending money, time, and energy, on cigarettes. We are all in our own race, and some may have an easier time quitting even after 20 years. The important thing is to keep fighting for yourself. Fight for the freedom of not having to use, everyday. Try quitting one bad habit at a time, because it can be very overwhelming, to try and quit to many things at once. I quit drinking soda years before, I even knew I was going to do this, because I had the fear of getting another kidney stone. I like to think of the monster as a gator. It is said to be unwise to feed a gator, because it will lose it’s fear of humans and attack. This is the same thing bad habbits do. They will push further than someone, wants to go. They will keep someone, longer than they want to stay. Then bad habbits, cost more than anyone wants to pay.
Here at breaking bad habits there is no judgement. I of all people understand and I love each of you. I don’t love bad habits, but everyone has habits. It is important to always be examining oneself, and to be positive, find the bad habits and to simply change from bad habits to good habits. The monster is going to fight to keep it’s claws in someone’s life, but determination, motivation, and education, will help anyone succeed. Someone should Determine they want to live a healthier life. This should help to motivate them to want to stop feeding the monster. It’s important for each person to educate themselves, because it helps quit bad habits when they research why it’s bad theirself. When someone else tells a person why cigarettes are bad it seems like a nag, but when someone reads for themself it hits a little deeper. In my case my fathers death was partially from all the years he smoked cigarettes. The best reason to quit feeding the monster is, because it’s better to live someone’s own life without being a prisoner to a bad habit.
