The 15 Habits That Do Not Please God but Are Common

My dear child,

Good morning. As you open your eyes to a new day, know that I am with you. Do you truly understand the power of a day that begins with Me? It might seem complex, but what if I told you that it's possible to transform each morning into a divine encounter with just a few simple steps? Today, let Me guide you through 13 surprisingly simple morning habits that will bring you closer to My Spirit, transforming your daily life in ways you never imagined.

Pray First

Before the noise of the day begins to crowd your mind, even before your feet touch the cool floor, offer the first moments of your awakening to Me. This act of faith doesn’t need to be long, but it should be deep and intentional. Say, "Lord, before I engage in my tasks and responsibilities, I turn to You. In You, I find my strength and my peace. Thank You for the gift of a new day. Protect me from harm and grant me wisdom for the challenges ahead."

By invoking Me in the quiet of the morning, you are placing Me at the center of your life, acknowledging your dependence on Me. Remember the words of the psalmist: "In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; in the morning, I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch." (Psalm 5:3). This practice sets the tone for your day, aligning your heart with Mine.

Quick Bible Study

Imagine starting your day, not with a rush of obligations, but with My gentle and powerful voice shaping your spirit. Dedicate the first moments to reading My Word. Start with short passages, rich in wisdom and instruction. Meditate on verses like Psalm 119:105, "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path," to arm yourself with divine light that will guide every step of your day.

Listening to Hymns and Praise Songs

Transform your daily commute or morning routine into an extraordinary moment of worship. Let the chords of hymns and praise songs fill the air, elevating your spirit and preparing your heart for the day ahead. Just as the psalmist found refuge and strength in worship, you can too. Invite Me to be your travel companion, and let the music renew your heart and focus your mind on My promises.

Short Morning Reflections

Before the day unfolds its burdens, start with a cup of coffee and a portion of My eternal wisdom. Use devotional books or apps for daily meditations. Reflect on verses like Ecclesiastes 12:1, "Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come..." to anchor your heart and mind in Me.

Walking Prayer

At dawn, as creation awakens, walk with Me. Praying while walking is not just exercise for your body but nourishment for your soul. Commit each step to Me, let each breath be a reminder of the life I breathed into you. As you walk, allow My voice to become clear and present, dissolving your worries and filling your heart with My peace.

Quick Gratitude Practice

As you wake, ponder three specific things for which you are thankful. Gratitude realigns your heart with the source of all blessings. "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is My will for you in Christ Jesus." (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Start your day with a grateful heart, and you will find your spirit prepared to face the day’s challenges.

One-Minute Meditation

Give yourself a moment of stillness before diving into daily activities. "Be still, and know that I am God..." (Psalm 46:10). Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and focus on a single verse. Let My Word renew your mind and calm your heart, preparing you to face the world with confidence in My sovereignty.

Structured Intercession

Keep an updated prayer list and intercede for others with intentionality. "The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." (James 5:16). Each name on your list is a declaration of hope, an opportunity to see Me in action. Pray with expectation and faith, becoming an active participant in My work in the world.

Verse Memorization with Repetition

Choose one verse per week and repeat it daily. "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." (Psalm 119:11). Each repetition is like a hammer chiseling stone, forming My image in you. Let My Word penetrate deeply, informing and transforming your life.

Observing Creation

Take time to marvel at My creation. Sit by a window, look at a garden, or contemplate the sky. "Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?" (Isaiah 40:26). Recognize My care in every detail of nature and know that I care for you even more.

Confession as Part of the Morning Shower

Use your shower as a time for confession and spiritual renewal. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9). Let the water symbolize My mercy washing away your sins, preparing you to start the day with a clean heart.

Preparing the Heart for Service

Mentally outline acts of kindness you can perform. "Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." (Colossians 3:12). Each act of kindness reflects My love and prepares your heart to serve under My influence.

Seeking Wisdom from Proverbs

Start your day with a proverb for guidance. "For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 2:6). Let these teachings shape your actions and decisions, providing a moral compass for your day.

Child, by integrating these habits into your morning routine, you will find a peace that transcends understanding. Each day will become a new opportunity to draw closer to Me, to live with purpose and joy. Embrace these practices and watch how your life transforms.
