God insists we turn from drinking/drugs. He is “Very” firm. Why? Because it is either His way or trouble. No middle ground.
We are created “For the Lord.” Our thoughts are “For the Lord.” Our actions are “For the Lord.” Our purpose is “For the Lord.”
I have been hearing about a book called Atomic Habits. I plan to read it. A great use of this book’s great tools would be to use his great advice in conjunction with doing what you learn here. Learning how to squeeze out bad habits and start new good habits.
God is very firm. I bet the advice in this book will push relentlessly for change. My Google search indicated that it would.
Second, I believe that God’s very firm way is the best way. I study His Word so that I learn exactly what He wants me to do.
Third, once I start doing things His way, I start to fully understand that His way is the best way. Then good things start to happen.
Fourth, this week learn the habit of praising the Lord, and get a book about learning new habits. Jesus, plus new habits will set you free.
