Let talks about something that you might not like and that is habitual sins that we women are so prone to committing. And this is a judgment-free zone because I too was and still sometimes am a committer or these habitual sins.
So understand that none of this is to judge you and but rather to help you and before we get into it I want to quote the following Bible verse so that you can understand how dangerous habitual sin is.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: For if we go on willfully and deliberately sinning after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice [to atone] for our sins [that is, no further offering to anticipate], but a kind of awful and terrifying expectation of [divine] judgment and the fury of a fire and burning wrath which will consume the adversaries [those who put themselves in opposition to God]. Hebrews 10:26-27
I think a common misconception is that we can openly sin in God’s face and then pled the blood of Jesus all so that we can openly sin in God’s face again. But you have to understand that although none of us is perfect and yes we do sin that we have to really try not to sin and that when we openly sin over and over again knowing that we shouldn’t be then we open ourselves to the judgment of God and we cannot just rely on grace. Not when God is shouting to us not to do it. Which is why I started out with this verse. Now that we have gotten that out of the way let us get into it.
1. Habitual Sins ~ Sex
I am a single mom so yes I have had sex before but now I am celibate. For the simple fact of what I just told you. That I knew that it was wrong and could no longer deny that I was not supposed to do something. The Bible clearly says.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18
So yes, sex outside of marriage is wrong no matter how you want to feel about it and it is one that is done within your own body. The same body in which the Holy Spirit dwells. And make no mistake about it, having sex is not just about feeling good. It can create soul ties which I have a separate blog post on. And also, I recommend you watch my video below on why being celibate is not just about not having sex so you can understand Biblically exactly how sex outside of marriage can affect you.

2. Habitual Sins ~ Lying
Another one of the 10 commandments that many people seem to ignore.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. Proverbs 12:22
Lying, manipulation, and intentionally bending the truth especially to hurt other people is wrong. Often time we lie on other people or we even lie to cover up or own behavior but all of it is wrong. I remember when I really set myself out to NOT lying, I noticed something amazing that happened. I start to change my behavior so that I did not do things that I would have to lie about.
Trust me, when you really commit yourself to not lying then you will notice that your behavior will change altogether and you will begin to behave in a more honest and admirable way knowing that you cannot lie about it later. Choosing not to lie helps you.
3. Habitial Sins ~ Adultery
I wish that this was not true but to date and for the past few years my post about women cheating with married men (click here) has been my most popular post. Mainly about women trying to justify that they can cheat with a married man and that God does not mind. YEAH NO! The Bible says:
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: He who commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it destroys himself. Proverbs 6:32
Please stop trying to disregard the Bible so that you can openly sleep with someone else’s husband. It is wrong and if you are a Christian then you should know that it is wrong. No ifs and or buts about it. Just because you have an urge to sleep with someone, especially someone’s husband does not mean that you have to act on it. We all have choices and we can all resist temptation.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
God always gives us the ability to walk away from temptation and to exercise self-control.
4. Habitual Sin ~ Lust
I want you to watch my video on where I suffered from lust because I think that it is important to know that lust is not JUST about having sex. It is thinking about sex and it is looking at a fine man and thinking about when you can or if you can have sex with him.
On top of watching the video, I also suggest you read my blog of when I suffered from lust and how I healed myself from it. The spirit of lust for me was a real thing that I could feel. It was something that I had adopted as normal until I was healed from it and I am no longer the same person I used to be in regards to how I deal with men.
5. Habitual Sins ~ Lack Of Self Control
When it comes down to all of these sins it comes down to this, the lack of self-control. Often women submit to sin because they feel as if they do not have a choice and that they have too. But that is not true. One of the fruits of the spirit if self-control. Take the following Bible verse:
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected] Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble]. Proverbs 25:28
It is important to know that when you suffer from a lack of self-control then you will do any and everything even if it is bad and you will set yourself up for failure.
6. Habitual Sins ~ Anger
It is not a sin to get angry you are a human being after all. Even Jesus got angry once when they found that people were selling items in the church and he started to flip over tables. But what is a sin is uncontrolled anger. Anger that leaves you to hit people, lie on them, or to do something that you will later regret. Also, anger that lingers in a big one. For the Bible says.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: In your anger do not sin “Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. Ephesians 4:26
When you are angry you are more prone to sin. That is why it is important to recognize your anger and do not let it linger for days on end. Because when you do.
For anger gives a foothold to the devil. Ephesians 4:27
When you harbor anger you allow the devil to come and manipulate your mind and possibly do something that you may regret.
7. Habitual Sins ~ Justifying Sin
So, I know what you may be saying at this point that it is hard to not do these sins especially the sex part, but then at this point, you would be justifying sin. If you choose to sin then just admit it to yourself, you are choosing to sin, but it is still a sin.
Do not try to justify it and say that you can’t help it, that God will understand, that it is okay, that God did not really mean what he says in the Bible because at this point you will be justifying sin all so that you can do what you want. And if that is the case, then you are choosing to disregard God’s word simply so you can do what you want.
8. Habitual Sin ~ Fear of Man
This is a big one. Let me tell you a story. I remember I worked for an organization that did a lot of wrongs. They lied, cheated, and when I wanted to NOT do the same things. Other people said the organization would bully me and tried to get me fired. And my response was that I did not fear man and I did not fear what they would do to me. I did do the right then and God delivered me from that place. For the Bible says:
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: In no way alarmed by your opponents—which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God. Philippians 1:28
When you choose to fear man, you are saying that their power and their ability of what they can do to you is above God. You do not need to bend to mankind or do something wrong because you fear people. You trust that you do the right thing and that God has your back. I also have a video on this that you can watch below.
9. Habitual Sins ~ Greed
One thing that I do want to clarify is that God does not want us all walking about people’s poor and struggling. There were rich people in the Bible, and you can click my blog post to read more on that. But the difference is that you do not make money your God. If God chooses to bless you with money great and if he does not, then that should be great too.
Remember that story above about the company I worked for. The reason why they were acting unethically is because of the money aspect. When you suffer from greed you are willing to lie, cheat, and steal to get it and all of that is wrong. For the Bible says:
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24
You serve God, work honestly, and with integrity and more often than not when you do God will bless you with money. Not because you want to lie, cheat, and steal to get it. But because you are behaving in a way that is Godly and when you give to God and to the world from a good place then God gives blessing for that. For the Bible says:
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Luke 6:38

10. Habitual Sin ~ Envy
This is a big one for women. We are jealous of another woman, her beauty, her success, her man, her marriage. It is crazy to me why women seem to suffer from so much jealousy. When you choose to be jealous you are choosing to not be happy with the portion that God is given you OR you are saying that God cannot give to you or give you better than what someone has and so you covet, aka want what someone has.
- What does the Bible say about habitual sin: Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple. Job 5:2
Being jealous will lead you down the path to hurt other people because you are jealous, feel sorry for yourself because you don’t have what other people have, or just behave in a way that is spiteful. Remember that God wants to bless you with your own unique blessings that are specific to you. So not need to sit around and envy other people for that they have.
These are the 10 habitual sins that women are prone to do doing. Now that you know them, I pray that you can try your hardest to stay clear of them.
