HOW TO OVERCOME BAD HABITS04:08
How can God help me deal with bad habits
Rom 8:5-6 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
What is a bad habit?
A bad habit is usually a sin of the flesh or a sin of the heart that is practiced so often that it becomes the character of that person; it becomes part of their nature. Many a time it has turned into an addiction and people have confessed to God the sin of these habits, but they still have the addiction.
1 Cor 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
It is Jesus Christ who gives us the victory! If you are saved, you can look back and see something that He has changed in your life for the better.
Cor 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savoir of his knowledge by us in every place.
One of the marks of a real Christian is a desire to stop sinning. It is a good sign that you want to stop. If a person has no desire to stop sinning, there is reason to wonder if he or she is a Christian.
Now what does a Christian man or woman do if he or she wants to stop a sinful habit? It starts by admitting to God that you have sinned. We call it confession (1 John 1:9). But confession does not involve begging God for forgiveness. Confession is admitting to God that you sinned without making any excuses! You must honestly believe that you sinned, and you must want to stop.
Associate with good people – Go To Church! There is a greater percentage of them there than anywhere else!
Ps 1:1-6 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so:but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
This type of man gets into the law of the Lord, and hangs around God’s people.
We must spend more time around God’s people and with God’s Book, so good habits will rub off onto you
verses having bad habits rubbing off onto you from being with the devils crowd.
