        Today I am tempted to chase one of my desires, which would also bring some extra cash in. That is what “I” want. I also have been praying:

        “Father, expand my borders and bless me indeed.”

        That is what “God” wants.

        I deserve to do what I want. Right?

        I know from past experience that I will be “happier” if I do what God wants. I know from past experience that I will be more blessed if I do what God wants.

        I forget that when I do things my way I reap frustration and emptiness.

        Second, every day, decide if you want God’s joy and blessing, or your way.

        Third, every day, decide if you are willing to work to live life the right way.

        Fourth, no matter how many clean days you currently have… Start “Every day” as if you need to fight to stay clean again today. That is a huge key to “Staying clean every day.”

          Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you[a] shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

          Read this, study it, memorize it. If you learn to love the Bible you will have a great life. Do you want to be prosperous?

          When I meditate on scripture, all of a sudden a light comes on. God’s way is best. Based on the above verse, what would your life look like in 3 months if you meditated on a new scripture, adding one every other day? Constantly working on quoting these scriptures and making them a part of you? Consider praying about that for 5 minutes.

          Second, PSALMS 119 “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.”

          Walk in the law of the Lord this week and see what blessings God has for you.

          2 “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”

          Seek Him and see what blessings God has for you.

          3 “They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. 4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.” A full focus on living right starts to lead toward a full blessing.

          7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.” Always praise Him no matter what. He is always right.

          8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.” David had experience with God forsaking him because of his sin. He did not want it to happen again.

          9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” When we focus on the Bible verses about the things we struggle with, our ways are cleansed.

          10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.” When we obey and seek the Lord, life starts to get good.

          11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” We don’t stop sinning by luck. Sometimes we struggle with sin even though we pray. But once God’s Word is filling our hearts, we begin to have the power to overcome.
