The 7 Habits of Strong Christians

Habit No. 1: Strong Christians Feed Their Spirit

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” –Matthew 4:4, NKJV.

How do you feed your spirit?

By reading God’s Word. Everyday.

Habit No. 2: Strong Christians Build Their Faith

“David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” –1 Samuel 30:6, AMPC

Faith is your responsibility. It isn’t God’s, it isn’t your pastor’s, and it isn’t your spouse’s. The only one who can guarantee that you enjoy a strong faith is YOU. God has given you the tools you need to develop a strong faith—the kind of faith that moves mountains, shuts the mouths of lions, quenches the flames of fire, turns weakness to strength, and puts whole armies to flight (Hebrews 11:33-34).

How do you build that kind of faith? By hearing the Word of God again and again (Romans 10:17).

Habit No. 3: Strong Christians Speak the Word

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” –Proverbs 18:21, NKJV

You’ve heard the saying, You are what you eat. But the Bible says, in essence, You are what you speak (Mark 11:23).

Habit No. 4: Strong Christians Control Their Thought Life

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” –Joshua 1:8,

Habit No. 5: Strong Christians Anchor Their Heart Through Praise

“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” –Psalm 34:1

Habit No. 6: Strong Christians Pray in the Spirit

“[Build] yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.”—Jude 20,

Habit No. 7: Strong Christians Get Rid of Baggage

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up.” –Hebrews 12:1
