Through Christ who is my strength, I break every and any destructive habit that has plagued my life. I no longer will be enslaved by bad habits. I no longer will give way to them and from now on, I have the dominion over my life, not bad habits. New habits will begin to form. Such as, being positive, not negative. I will eat better and tame my tongue. I will not give in to laziness but form awesome habits of discipline and hard work. I will form a habit of prayer and of reading the Word. Rather than give way to the desires of the flesh, I will form a new habit of feeding my spirit and not my flesh. In fact, I will start to starve the destructive nature of the flesh. It is declared in the Word that I have been crucified with Christ, so I now will live that out with all His strength. I ask of God to mold in me, some awesome habits I’m currently unaware I need to form. I take what the Word says seriously and consider myself a new creation in Christ, the old is gone…the new has come.
This what I believe and confidently declare!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
Ephesians 6:10 (ESV) Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
Galatians 2:20 (ESV) I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Colossians 3:1-4 (ESV) If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Colossians 2:13-15 (ESV) And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
