These are my top 5 healthy habits I think you should start today. ALL of these are very important to building an intimate relationship with God and living for God by treating your body the holy temple of God that it is.
- Reading your bible
- Pray throughout the day
- Wake up early
- Meal prepping
- Put on Armor of God
Read your bible
If you do not do anything else, you must do this. This is often very overlooked as a Christian because you think since you have God everything is fine. Although, you must be continually seeking God because He always has something He is trying to show us. So read your bible, you will not regret it!
Pray throughout the day
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us”. (1 John 5:14)
Prayer is something that is very overlooked and taken for granted. Prayer is something we should be SO thankful for. As Christians in this dark broken world we constantly need to be connected to God. Not only be connected to God, but to ask for what we need in this life, because God will give it to you.
Wake up early
“She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens” (Proverbs 31:15).
Now before you skip this one hear me out. In the bible it talks about a women who gets up while it is still dark outside to provide for her family. God is trying to tell us we should not sleep in because if we do we won’t be able to provide for our family to the fullest. Although, I know how tough it can be to get up while it still dark outside, but if you want to achieve success it is essential.
“Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” (Proverbs 15:22).
Meal prep not always be the most fun thing however if you are truly busy and truly serious about wanting to take care of your body I highly recommend meal prepping! It has saved me sooo many times when I get home I can just go ahead and eat vs waiting for something to cook! I usually meal prep sundays and Thursdays!
Put on Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
This may sound like a weird habit however this has saved me in my desperate times, pridefulness and so many more times. To put on the armor of God is to put on Jesus, to surrender your life to him and to fight the good fight of faith to which God has called us to. It might be hard at times however it is SO worth it!!
