Develop the Habit of Joy

                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 bathing every day; bad habits like biting your nails or eating that fattening snack before bedtime! Our days are filled with habitual behaviors….some good and some not.  But the fact is…We choose our habits!  

                Prayer is a good habit; one of the best I know!  We can rely on God to fill us with 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 seems so simple, doesn’t it?  But we are in a battle because 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 powerful habit to help us 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 determine to develop a joyful habit of drinking and sharing the Joy Juice of JESUS!
