Joyful Habits Can Change A Life

             Have you had your JOY JUICE today?  Forming a good habit of drinking it daily is a sure way to focus on a life of JOY!

             Developing good habits is not really that hard to do….it’s just making up our minds to do it!  The Greek Philosopher, Aristotle, said: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”  

                Think about the habits that you’ve developed over the years…good habits like brushing your teeth and reading your Bible daily; bad habits like overeating and watching too much television! Our days are filled with habitual behaviors….some good and some bad.  But the fact is…We choose our habits!  

                Prayer is a wonderful habit; one of the best I know!  We can rely on God to fill us with His wisdom and joy…if we will get into the habit of always going to Him first!  In Proverbs 4:11, God promises us:  “I will guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.”

                That sounds simple, doesn’t it?  But what we must never forget is that we are in a battle; our enemy is out to destroy those good, Godly habits by tempting us in our weak areas.  1 Peter 5: 8 – 9 warns: “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith…”

                Standing firm in our faith is a wonderful habit that will help us to walk in His ways….With God’s help we can practice His wisdom and joy until it becomes a natural part of our life.

                Let’s all develop a joyful habit of drinking and sharing the JOY JUICE of JESUS!
