We all know the saying "it takes 21 days to create a new habit." (Surprise surprise!) However, it is the process that is challenging. It requires discipline and perseverance to create a new habit. And this is your challenge!
First, let’s identify the habits we would like to implement. Seek God in prayer and ask God for the habits that He would like for you to implement. Think about the goals you have set for yourself. What activities and choices will propel you towards those things? What actions will strengthen your faith, make you healthier, or have an overall positive impact on you for the future? For the next 21 days, (I’d say do 40 to up the ante) do that thing. Do it every day and remember why you are doing it. Let your habits draw you closer to God and to the plans He has for you.
Heavenly Father, I thank You for supplying all of my needs. I thank You that in You, I lack nothing. I thank You that Your word says to make my requests known to You with prayer and supplication, so I come to ask You to empower me to build new habits, by Your direction and leading, that will glorify You and guide me on the path You have for me. I thank You for equipping me with wisdom and strengthening me to be able to follow through. I thank You that with new habits, I am setting my footing to be positioned for victory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
