        Satan always uses the right “bait” when tempting you. He knows if anger will lead you to ______, if TV will lead you to ________, if wrong friends will lead you to __________. Today, consider setting hourly alarms on your phone to remind you to pray:

        “Father, show me what “bait” satan is using on me. Help me to run from his bait.”

        In humility, I need to realize… I am often out of God’s exact will. When I am in that state, I need to remember to start doing the things God wants me to do to get back in His exact will.

        A lack of love shows me that I am out of God’s will. Anger, discontentment, and a variety of other emotions may also be indications. When I go down those roads I am running from joy.

        Second, what I flirt with, I will likely fall for. Consider praying:

        “Father, show me what I flirt with?”

        Consider praying this often because flirting leads to wrong actions, and wrong actions have consequences.

        Go to war with wrong thoughts, high-risk TV, and a worship of wrongful pleasures. They lead to trouble. You will reap what you sow. Consider sowing more Bible study and prayer. Then you will reap good things.

        Third, the best time to win the war against anger and _______ is before it begins.

        Psalm 119:12 I have made up my mind to obey your laws forever, no matter what!”

        #1 Our lives “always” improve when we agree with this verse.

        #2 We struggle to agree that this verse is “always” true.

        #3 The more we read this verse, the more we will understand that our lives will always improve when we agree with this verse.

        Fourth, think new thoughts:

        Philippians 2:4 Don’t just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.

        #1 Care about others, be interested in others.

        #2 Care about souls. I have been praying often lately:

        “Father, help me to care about souls.”

        #3 Consider praying:

        “Father, take away this anger and help me to love others.

        Finally, think often about eternity and heaven. That’s where we want to go.
