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!
