    With the 1-2 habit, we write down 1-2 key things from an article. To triple its effectiveness set an alarm to review these key items every 30 minutes. Obviously, this only works when you are more alone and can review the key things for a few minutes. But, those are the times when temptation ramps up.

    Second, Galatians 5:1 ESV “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

    Consider praying:

    “Father, teach me how to put this slavery to death.”

    Satan wants us to consider triggers for a tiny bit, to keep considering for just a second, to wait to turn away from tempting thoughts for an instant. Why does God want us to put these thoughts “To death.” #1 The Bible commands us to be “Filled with the Holy Spirit.” Considering triggers or bad thoughts stops this filling dead for more than a minute or two. Note: Treat intentional thoughts with rapid repentance. Don’t try to fool God, he knows exactly how intentional it was. #2 Considering our (bad) options keeps us from our purpose and from joy. When we cheat, someone is getting cheated. To find out who, check your mirror. Consider praying:

    “Father, help me to turn from this habit and show me how to find joy.”

    We find joy in purpose and in the presence of the Lord. Remember the two P’s, purpose and presence. They will start you down the path toward joy.
