Ten Healthy Habits – Part 1

Ten Healthy Habits – Part 1

Do you have any bad habits you’d like to eliminate this year? Chances are, that’s a big fat YES! And I would guess some of your bad habits are the bane of your existence. 

Bad habits can negatively affect everything from spiritual growth to relationships and physical and mental health. 

The secret to kicking bad habits is often to start doing the exact opposite and create healthy ones. 

Today, we will start by looking at two of the ten healthy habits you should try to master. Now, maybe you can’t master all of them at once. Truly successful people work to master all that they can.

These healthy habits will be stated as a declaration for your life to be repeated daily.

I will be a person of prayer. 

Have you ever heard the term ‘you are what you eat?’ The same is true of your prayer life. You are what you pray. 

Here’s what I mean. The more you pray, the closer you are to Jesus, and the more like him you will become.

The Bible says, “Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.” (James 4:8)

Prayer helps to solidify your loyalty to God in body, mind, and spirit. It’s one of the healthiest habits you will create all year.

I will be a person who reads my Bible. 

King Solomon, one of the wisest men to ever live, said, “My child, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.” (Proverbs 4:20-22)

Just like your body struggles because it lacks healthy food, our spirit struggles because it lacks healthy spiritual food. 

The reason you often struggle relationally, emotionally, and spiritually is that you’re missing out on one of the healthiest things you can do in your life. Feeding yourself the word of God. It is “life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.”

Not only is God’s word a key to great health, but it’s the secret to a successful life. The book of Joshua tells us to “study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” (Joshua 1:8)
