-Recognize the battles going on
-Recognize the lies of the enemy…replace with God’s Truth
-Recognize your weaknesses, that’s where the Devil likes to strike most. Truth: We will struggle to overcome our temptations or defeat the demons that we continually FLIRT with. Accountability is a necessity for everyone. Healthy and holy boundaries are good for us as we pursue God's best.
-Recognize the power we have in and through Jesus to stand firm in faith!
-Resist the 'drift' - the enemy will try to disrupt your relationship with Jesus and try to do all he can to dilute your connection with Christ
-Resist the 'labeler mindset' - we have one enemy, and it's not other people.
-Resist the extremes of self-reliance and self-condemnation. Stay humble and recognize your need for God. Don't buy the accusations from the enemy. Satan is our biggest accuser, but Jesus is our Greatest Advocate! (see: Zechariah 3, John 15 and Romans 8)
