Habits, can be like giants, especially when it is a habit that is hard for someone to quit. When I quit smoking cigarettes, I realized that there are habits that some will never be able to quit. Not everyone escapes their giant. Some may think to themselves that my habit isn’t that bad. Anything that becomes so important, that you can not go to bed, or wake up, without indulging, can lead to a idol, or in this care habit/giant.
I’m not condemning anyone with any type of habits I’m just here to encourage everyone, that no matter how big the giant, habit, or circumstance. There is hope, and you can quit. If I could quit some of the habits I have had over 20 years then anyone can. Their is a way to quit as long as someone is willing to try the Father will meet you halfway.
There is hope, even though the day is fading and the storm clouds are moving in. Don’t be discouraged, the Father is always one prayer away. The enemy is clever, and is not going out silently, so it’s important, for us, to be, prepared at every moment.
The moment we stop preparing, is usually when we are caught, in a bad situation. I have recently learned this lesson, the hard way. I think the time for being lukewarm is over, because time is short, and things are happening fast. We are not promised tomorrow, and although I’ve seen countless videos about, when the Lord will return. His word does say no one, knows when He will return. This means we should stay prepared, at all times.
I stay prepared, by trying to stay in prayer. The best way, I have found, to do this is beginning my day, in meditation, and prayer. Starting the day, the right way, with the Father. The best thing, to do, is leave the phone alone, until after devotion time. I have found that, this helps me. Does anyone else have any suggestions on spending time with the Lord?
Don’t look back looking back gets us trapped in the now. Look forward as a vision of the most positive exuberant you. Unless you want to stay at the same level you are at now.
Lift each other up, instead of tearing each other down. Do not let yourself be caught up in the negativity of others. I sometimes have to put my own emotions in check several times daily, so I am not letting, the negativity of others get to me.
Just know that if you fail it’s ok, just don’t let it spiral out of control reclaim your victory over being negative and find a way to win without negative words, or actions. The easy solution is usually not the best one. Be prepared to work You are worth it.
Father I pray for wisdom, this is a difficult subject for some people I love dearly. One thing for sure, the more I learn about television, the more I know, that it was not intended, for our benefit. The television puts users in a hypnotic state, and this is very dangerous, to live, in this state. I’m not a scientist myself, but I did learn this from one. If someone is in a hypnotic state they are being programmed by what they are putting in front of their eyes.
