Yesterday, we started a brand new series called Habits! Pastor Chris brought the FIRE as he taught from Romans chapter 7 about how we can’t have true and lasting change outside of the power of the Holy Spirit.
He preached on three reasons we don’t succeed even though we have good intentions:
1. We focus on the “what” but we don’t understand the “how”
2. We don’t see progress fast enough
3. Our identity becomes distorted
If we try and do life on our own, the best that we can do is the best that we can do. But if we rely on God, the best that we can do is the best that God can do.
As humans, we aren’t going to just rise to the level of our goals, but fall to the level of our systems. If you want to meet those goals, systems are crucial because we can’t change our results without changing our routine.
We can’t expect change to happen overnight. We must choose day in and day out to follow after God, even if we aren’t seeing progress as fast as we would like to see it. If we believe that small, good decisions don’t make a difference, then we also won’t believe that small, bad decisions will make a difference.
Our life is a result of every small decision we’ve made along the way. What small, God-honoring decisions will you choose to make this week?
