"Breaking Old Habits…Setting A New Course"   01-26-20

Weekly Thought:

“Changing Habits Requires Focused Willingness To Take New Action”  sv

Scripture:

1 Kings 3:12b 12b…I will give you a wise and discerning heart

Joshua 24:15  (NASB) 15 …choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Proverbs 16:3  (NIV)  Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

James 1:25  (NKJV)

25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

Proverbs 2:20  (ESV) 20 So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous.

Special Reading:

We must first have the desire or motivation to make a change. Then we must change our mindset and our attitude. This drives us to make the decision to do things differently: to break the habit, or change it. Of course, we must effect a change by doing things in a new manner or using a new method. The mechanism to break bad habits or to change must come from within us and not from others. www.everydaypower.com
