Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 10 October 2019 – LAUNCHING GOOD HABITS
Put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
Colossians 3:10, NIV
Recommended Reading: Colossians 3:5-14
Rafael Badziag, who studies the psychology of entrepreneurship, interviewed 21 billionaires and found they all had the same six core habits: (1) They wake up early; (2) they keep healthy and exercise regularly; (3) they are avid readers; (4) they take time to contemplate and think; (5) they develop routines and rituals; (6) they practice discipline and self-control.1
Being a billionaire is overrated, but building a biblical personality is vastly underrated. There’s no value we can put on a godly lifestyle, yet we must strive to establish good habits that keep us focused on the Lord. What habits do you need to strengthen in your life? Improved stewardship of your time? Regular periods of rest? Healthier communication with those you love? Less screen time? Exercise? Nutrition?
All these are habits, and habits are like spaceships. It takes a lot of energy to launch them, but once they’re in orbit their momentum becomes natural. Don’t be discouraged. Work on a new habit today.
Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of Christ to His people.
