5 Ways To Be Consistent With God

Are you consistent with your daily routines?  Maybe you grab a coffee on the way to work,  or brew some in your own kitchen. 

Perhaps you work out in the morning or in the evening.   Some people are simply better at making a plan and sticking to it than others. 

We all have different routines that make our schedules unique, but one thing that should be the same for everyone is consistency with God. 

Does He have a place in your daily schedule?   Is He part of your day?

But the truth is, we have all fallen short when it comes to keeping God at the forefront of our plans. 

Now is the time to take control and seek out His plan with consistency.

How To Form a Habit 

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

~Galatians 6:9~

The best way to form a habit is to start small and make the habit easy to accomplish. Then, gradually increase the difficulty and frequency of the habit. 

It can be helpful to create triggers that remind you to perform the habit and to track your progress. 

It’s important to be consistent and patient with yourself, as it can take time for a habit to become ingrained.

What Causes Lack of Consistency? 

“He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

~James 1:8~

Excuses. The only real answer asking ‘what causes lack of consistency’ is excuses. 

Think about how people tend to respond. Are any of these phrases familiar? 

  • I just got too busy.
  • It’s softball season. 
  • Finals are coming up.
  • It’s just too much with the kids and school. 
  • My in-laws are in town. 
  • I don’t know where to start. 

Anything other than a “yes” or a “no” is not acceptable to God. 

So, will you decide to make time for Him and add Him to your schedule? Do you know what it means to be consistent with God?

Consistency Will Change the Outcome

“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.” 

~Revelation 2:10~

Now you know it is important and expected for you to be consistent.  but what does that mean exactly?

It means that no matter what, you keep your focus on Jesus every single day!  

No matter what is going on around you, pray consistently, study God’s Word, keep your faith in Him. 

Things will happen!  Its part of life.  How we handle those things will determine how we will spend eternity. 

There may be times when you are exhausted, in pain mentally or physically, or just plain busy,  but all of those things cannot come in the way of of time spent with  your creator.

The pain and suffering of this earth will all pass,  but God and your spirit will last for eternity. 

So just as God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, we should be the same, especially when it comes to the things of God. 

The Holy Spirit is your helper and guide. 

Being consistent with God is relying on Him, above the earthly and fleshy things that get in the way.

The Power of Consistency in the Bible

There are so many times in the Bible that someone had to choose consistency in a difficult situation. 

Perhaps you are not in a lion’s den or facing a plague, but your own trials are still relevant and valid tests of faith and opportunities to prove your consistency with God. 

Here are just some snippets of the power of consistency in the Bible with scripture references so you can find the full story: 

  • Daniel in the Lion’s Den – Daniel 6 
  • David, Man After God’s Own Heart – 1 Samuel 17 
    • “After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’” – Acts 13:22
  • Mary at the Feet of Jesus – Luke 10:38-42 

Build a Consistent Relationship with God

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

~Mark 12:29-30~

Jesus said that the most important commandment is to Love God with all your soul, mind, and strength. 

If the things of the world are getting ahead of God in your thoughts and actions, it is time to reevaluate your priorities and become more consistent.

Here are 5 ways to be Consistent with God

1. Praying and meditating regularly

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” 

~Galatians 6:9~

It should not be a bad thing to make time to pray and clear your mind. Not only is it good for your mind and soul, it is exactly what God requires of you. 

2. Reading and studying scripture

“You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me.”

~John 5:39~

Reading and studying scriptures is important for many reasons. 

It can provide guidance and wisdom, give a deeper understanding of our faith and beliefs. 

It can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-improvement, as we reflect on the word and how it relates to us. 

3. Practicing virtue and living a moral life. 

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things.”

~Philippians 4:8~

Make a point to be intentional about avoiding things that are immoral.   

As a Christian, this involves following the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ, as well as following the principles in the Bible.   

This can include:

  • Loving God and loving our neighbor.
  • Treating others as we would like to be treated.
  • Practicing forgiveness and humility.
  • Being honest and truthful.
  • Being selfless and serving others, as Jesus did throughout his ministry.
  • Being compassionate and showing mercy towards others.
  • Being pure in thought and actions.
  • Being content with what we have.

It’s all laid out for us.  We just need to read it. 

It’s important to note that living a virtuous life is not just about following rules, but it’s a journey to be close to God and follow his teachings.

4. Serving others and the community

“not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” 

~Hebrews 10:25~

Building relationships with other Christians in your community is essential to our walk.  

Whether it’s through participating in a local Bible study, joining a Christian sports league, or simply getting to know your Christian neighbors, building relationships with other believers in your community can be a great way to connect and serve.

It’s important to remember that connecting and serving with other Christians is not just about what we can get out of it, but it’s about how we can support and encourage each other in our faith journey, and how we can be a light to the world through our actions.

5. Worshiping and fellowship regularly with a community

“What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.”

 ~1 Corinthians 14:26~

Worship and fellowship is not just about singing and listening, but it’s about connecting with God and with other believers, it’s about growing in faith and becoming more like Jesus.

We were also meant to be a part of the Body of Christ, which is the Church. Part of being consistent with God is through consistent fellowship with other believers. 

Fellowship refers to the sense of community and connection that is built when believers come together. 

It involves sharing our lives with one another, encouraging one another in our faith, and serving one another in love. 

Fellowship can happen in a variety of settings, including small groups, Bible studies, and informal gatherings.

Preparing for the Days Ahead 

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 

~1 Corinthians 15:58~

Remember that standing firm in faith is not always easy, but God is always with us and He will always provide the strength, wisdom and guidance we need. 

He will help us to overcome any challenge and to stay faithful to Him.

Being aware that temptations and persecution can come from within and from outside can help to be ready for them and to be able to resist them.

You will start to notice a change, but it will take time and effort. 

Pray for God to open your heart and give you the courage and strength to put Him first.

God is ready, because He is always ready, to have a real relationship with you, 

His wonderful creation!
