Successful Habits

This one is short and sweet...

Hebrews 10:25 Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing,....
"Meeting together as believers is a good habit because it provides necessary fellowship with other believers, it develops the habit of group Bible study, it keeps us busy when we might otherwise be slipping into bad habits, and it offers an accountability group. "(Touchpoints for Women,1998)
Sometimes as business men and women we forget that we need to start our day with pray and thanksgiving to the Lord. Well that is first and foremost. Whether you work 1st shift or third shift or work at home any shift. Whenever your day starts, start with prayer. Cover your entire life with prayer and thanksgiving; being covered by the blood of Jesus. Why? Because you need, we need to allow the Lord to give us peace throughout the day to season our speech, our actions. Everything. Yet, there is also the meeting together of believers. Sometimes you have to have that connection outside of church hours. Not just bible study; not just ministry meetings. There are networks that I belong to that are Christian based. I belong to a Christian based sorority. I don't miss my spiritual connection with my friends that are believers, because they will tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and it will be biblically based.

Hebrews 10:25...but let us encourage one another----and all the more as you see the DAY approaching.
It is important to encourage those that know that time is drawing near for the Lord's return. Why? The signs and wonders will be great, but if they don't get it now time will run out for all. It will be too late. It is best to encourage people to be positive in the day they are in move according to the Lord's plan, not theirs. To understand that being saved is a good option in life. Encourage the believers to keep standing and be still to hear the voice of the understand correction. To discern right from wrong. Life doesn't have to be hard....We just have to make right choices.
