Because of Jesus Christ, you are a winner. But to maintain the victory there are some things that you must do. To include:


Don’t Quote the Devil. In going through your tests, it’s important that you don’t quote what the devil has to say. Instead, use The Word of God and allow it to be your meditation. Because when you quote words of unbelief, i.e. “I don’t know how I am going to make it” or “I don’t know how the bill is getting paid” then you are hooked. 


Don’t Use Worry. Worry means to be uneasy in the mind or feel anxiety about something. When you begin to worry you have taken your eyes off of Jesus Christ. You are not using your bible and instead, you are leaning to your own understanding. Worry is not in the vocabulary of faith.


Don’t Be In a Hurry. The Lord’s timing is always peaceable not anxious. God can speak tonight and reveal it 20 years from now. His Word will never fail and He is not in a rush. God has an appointed time for everything, so wait on Him.


Don’t Give Into Your Thoughts. Your insufficiencies/problems can’t tell you anything except what it knows. When you give into thoughts like fear, doubt and worry, you can’t go any further. That is why you have to let The Word of God do the talking. So say what God says until you come out of your situation. 


Don’t Give Into Hopelessness. When you allow feelings of hopelessness to make you think that all is lost, then you are a prime candidate for sadness. Remember, as a child of God you are not on a dead end street.


Love God. When we love God in the midst of our troubles, He will give us a revelation of the purpose. So seek Him for the answer and continue to love Him.  When Satan, in the flesh (negative thoughts/feelings) tells you something contrary to The Word of God, Christ, in the inner man will give you the answer.
