    2. I can’t do it/my best isn’t good enough is being spoken when we pray and then deliverance from temptation will come
    3. “And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.” James‬ ‭1‬:‭13‬-‭15‬ ‭NLT‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

    3. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” II Corinthians‬ ‭10‬:‭3‬-‭5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. When you sin repent quickly!
    1. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John‬ ‭1‬:‭9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. The simplicity of the gospel is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ the complexity of the gospel is simply to just believe! This is how we overcome! To be as children!
