Yesterday someone asked me how to change bad habits? Do you have habits in your life that you want to stop or change? Maybe itâ€™s a bad attitude, bad behaviour, or even negative thoughts. No matter what you may want to change in your life, you have to start with changing your mind. You have to change your thinking so that your thoughts are in line with Godâ€™s thoughts. Once your thinking changes your behaviour will change.
When you repent and make the decision to follow God in every area of your life, you open the door for His supernatural power to work. When you take control of your thought life, through the Holy Spirit you are co-operating with the power that brings about change. Your life will go in the direction of your thoughts. You canâ€™t just allow any old thought or image to play in your mind. You have to choose right thoughts.
Today, the easiest way to change your thoughts is by speaking Godâ€™s Word. When you say â€œpear,â€ you probably wonâ€™t start thinking about an apple. In the same way, when you confess the Word of God, it will drive those negative, defeated thoughts away which will change bad habits! Change your mind today by changing your words and focus, so that you can move forward into the abundant life God has in store for you!
â€œRepent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.â€ (Matthew 3:2, AMPÂ
Yahweh, today give me the strength to take captive every thought that is contrary to Your will. Father, I repent for anything in my life that is displeasing to You. God, please empower me today by Your Spirit, so that I can change my bad habits and bring honour to You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
