They will give you weapons for spiritual warfare – Eph. 6:17
2. Believe God’s word and all the promises of God for yourself.
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 2 Cor 1:20 NKJV
Walk by faith, not by sight – Heb. 10:38-39
3. Pray without ceasing – 1 Thess. 5:17
With thanks make your request known to God – Phil. 4:6-7

7. Recognize your weaknesses and depend on God’s strength.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians: 12-13 NKJV
You will have temptations but their power will always be broken when you resist the devil, pray and have faith in God
