Building Godly Habits: A Spiritual Building Plan: 8 Habits for Godly Living
Have you ever wondered why in the midst of your good intentions, you still failed to maintain the most well-meaning resolutions? The answer to this dilemma is habit. We are creatures of habit. Therefore, it is necessary to have a paradigm shift. We need to consciously develop spiritual habits by repetitiously doing Godly things-Godly means behavior that is consistent with the nature of God. If we want to implement our spiritual resolutions, we must develop a pattern of behavior that will be conducive to developing that desired behavioral change.
Have you ever wondered how habits are formed? Habits are formed strategically and methodically through repetition of behavior. To build Godly habits, we must chew and do what God’s Word says. The word “chew” denotes that we must meditate on and internalize God’s Word; “do” implies that we must do what the Word of God says. Can you imagine the magnitude of our spiritual growth if we were to develop the eight habits mentioned in this book? Each habit is built day by day, week by week, and month by month. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can be built into healthier Christians.
