Bible Topics: Habits, Overcoming Bad

Definition: A habit is a recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition; an established state of mind or character; customary manner or practice. Habits, of course, can be either good or bad, helpful or harmful.

1. Some common causes of bad habits:

2. In order to continue to grow spiritually, we need strive to replace old bad habits with positive new ones.

3. The Lord can help us change and overcome anything; all He needs is our yieldedness and cooperation.

4. We need to shun bad habits not only for our own sake, but also for the sake of others; it's a part of love.

5. We need to get militant against bad habits for God's work's sake.

6. Some of the more serious "bad habits" may have evil spirits at the root.

7. We need to pray for a "can do" attitude toward overcoming our bad habits.

8. Especially when we are beginning to form new positive habits, we need to ask the Lord to remind us when we are falling back into our old ways, so that we can learn to catch and correct ourselves.

9. We need the prayers and safeguarding of others to keep from falling into bad habits.

10. Once we've determined to change, we need to be on guard and rebuke every temptation to fall back into our old habits.

11. With conscious effort and the Lord's help, positive new habits will come more naturally.
