When is God speaking to you? You know He can still do that in a lot of ways.
Well, when you feel bad and sense you're convicted inside.. like when doing something wrong, yeah, guess what... God is speaking to you. He's speaking to you in your conscience by His Spirit. Are their habits to form and not to form.. from what you hear Him saying to you? Yup.
And at those moments when you want to do the right thing, guess what.. the Spirit is more than likely speaking to you again. People can of course feel compelled to do too much stuff, and become too busy for their relationship with Christ -- that's bad, but your old fleshly nature isn't going to prompt you to go do the right things. Mr. Lu-Cifer ain't gunna do that either.
But instead of merely doing the right thing, go do right things that the Holy Spirit directs you to do. Why Kurt? Here's why.. cuz habits are built simply by repetitive actions.

God's way (Jesus, and knowing Him well is the very best way for you. All God's "ways" are better than your own way and "excuses."
Good Habits For Ya: 1. Honest confession and 2. True repentance of personal sins. Are you ungodly? One lady said "No! I am not ungodly!" My friend responded with: "Then Jesus didn't die on the Cross for you." Sure, we might make it a day or two ..or three without sinning, but lost sinners and save sinners sin. Hate that when I do. But saved-sinners should sin less and less and less.. as we ditch de-edifying habits, form good habits that build up and simply follow the Lord. Saved sinners, they choose to grow daily. You can become a saved-sinner instead of a lost sinner right here and now! 3. Daily prayer is a great habit -- gettin' real with God and listening with a heart to obey. I like to journal some pray time on my computer in Google Drive (the cloud, cuz I can do that audio to God and to text). 4. Denying yourself what tears down, or sets a bad example by the power of the Spirit and edifying others instead. 5. Daily Bible reading and hearing -- that about more listening. 6. Fellowship with growing believers, preferably in the context of a healthy local church led by born again leaders who are spiritual instead of carnal, lukewarm or worldly. 7. Clearly telling your story (testimony) including the sharing of the Gospel for the purpose of winning the hearer to Christ today -- verbally sharing the truth in love with unbelievers. Yeah, witnessing for Jesus Christ.
