As disciplined disciples, we need to implement habits in our walk with God.
For years it was believed in the personal growth community that it takes 21 days to develop a habit.
Recently however, some scientific studies and experiments have proven this to be a fallacy.
According to Phillippa Lally; a health psychology researcher at University College London, a new habit usually takes a little more than 2 months — 66 days to be exact — and as much as 254 days until it’s fully formed.
Yes, it probably takes this long to mortify the flesh.
So, what are the 3 disciplines that the devil and his henchmen will do everything in their power to keep you from?
Well, it’s not rocket science. You probably know them already…
But just to be sure… you’d better listen anyway. 😉
Oh, and I (Sebastien) also cover seven steps to develop a new habit to help you to be well on your way in resisting the devil!See Show Notes
1 Peter 2:11 says:
“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.”
The definition of a pilgrim says: One who journeys in foreign lands. One who travels to a shrine or holy place as a devotee.
A pilgrim is always on the move. A pilgrim doesn’t stay put for long.
While they may pitch their tent in one place, they never do it for too long.
The Bible says that we are pilgrims on this earth. We are travelling through.
But our journey doesn’t strictly limit itself to our time on earth, but is also determined by our journey into truth.
God has called each of us to be lifelong learners. To learn something new each step of the way with Him by our side.
This means that as we learn and grow, we’ll also embrace and abandon, learn and unlearn, consider and reconsider. Our knowledge base and understanding will change with each passing season. Sometimes, it may even change into something that’s downright scary!
Like Thomas Jefferson, we too should be able to say: “I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way.”
So, how far are YOU willing to change and adapt as God shows you new truths?See Show Notes
You cannot lead effectively in the Kingdom of God without a strong mindset.
This leadership principle is taught at all the high-performance seminars across the world. However, for the believer, a strong mindset has different components than, say, high-performance corporate seminars or business leaders.
God desires you to have a mindset that reflects His Kingdom. He wants you to think like He thinks, see like He sees, and speak like He speaks.
But this is easier said than done, right?
So, in this episode we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series by giving you 7 Mindset Keys to Unlock Your Leadership.
Hey, You’re Welcome!See Show Notes
As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we now take a deeper look at the importance of KNOWLEDGE.
It has been my observation that knowledge in the body of Christ has suffered two major setbacks in recent years.
It is scorned
It is ignored
This reminds me of the quote by Mark Noll in his book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, which says, “The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind.”
knowledge, or acquiring knowledge cannot be ignored as something that is trivial. This, is a deadly mistake that pleases the Enemy greatly.
Kingdom leaders simply cannot be ignorant.
Remember: Ignorance is not a sin, the desire to remain ignorant is.See Show Notes
You’ve probably heard the saying “Too much of a good thing ain’t good for you”, right?
Well, in this week’s episode, we are exploring an important question for the remnant and the Christian truthers. The question is…
How much information (or truth) is too much? And, conversely, how can we navigate the barrage of information and disinformation that comes our way every day?
How much of the Enemy’s plan should believers seek to know? How to know when you’ve gone too far down the rabbit hole?
You see, I (Sebastien), used to be an avid truther, conspiracy realist, and information seeker. Through seeking and research, I unraveled and found incredible mysteries. But, after about a decade, I began to feel like all I was only focused on negative stuff. As a result, I became cynical, arrogant, and depressed. It’s not a good place to be, especially when you’re married, with children.
So, in this week’s Broadcast Episode, we tackle how to navigate the subject of TRUTH, and dare to question: How much of it can we and should we handle?
With everything that’s going on right now in the world, we felt that a balanced approach is quite needed at this time in the body of Christ.
So, in this episode, we consider how to avoid extremes in both negativity and information. As you will see, being balanced in a time of information overload and disinformation is absolutely crucial in order to maintain a healthy view of the world, God, and events – even during the darkest times.
By the way, I (Sebastien Richard) shared this poem during the broadcast. I believe it will bless some of you:
THE RABBIT HOLE (by Sebastien Richard)
I went down the rabbit hole. I wanted to see just how deep it went.
I said to God, “I’ll hold your hand, just don’t let go.” So, down, down, I went.
I thought I would reach the bottom. The farther down I went, the more I learned, and yet the darker it got. As I spiraled downward, I kept holding God’s hand – barely.
I gained much insight, unraveled mysteries, un-learned much, but still didn’t reach the end of it. “That hole is just too deep”, I thought. It became just pitch dark.
When darkness was all I could see, that’s when I told Him, “Enough already! Hold my hand Lord, I’m coming back up. I miss the light I took for granted.”See Show Notes
