Certain things follow certain things.
The important thing is to know what thing follows what thing for you.
What are your sequences?
Does anger follow tiredness? Does temptation follow spiritual highs? Does insight follow reading?
Does relief follow rest?
Even the Bible notes sequence. James tracks the birth and trajectory of sin. He notes certain pre-sin conditions lead to sin.
The power of sequence is real.
Of course, we do not want to excuse our sin by blaming circumstances, and yet to ignore the power of sequence would be unwise.
We are creatures shaped by our environment. For this reason we are told to avoid temptation. We are to focus on what is good.
So attack your sin. But also attack your sequence.
See the patterns. Anticipate. Make adjustments. Avoid negative triggers. Seek out positive triggers.
