You’re in a battle. Be battle ready.

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
1 John 2:15-17

The lust of the flesh.

For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh…
1 John 2:16

The lust of the eyes.

…the lust of the eyes…
1 John 2:16

The pride of life.

…and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.
1 John 2:16


Start by understanding Godly discernment.

33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.
1 Corinthians 15:33-34

3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.
John 10:3-4

Stop self – sabotaging your walk with Christ.

…and do not give the devil a foothold.
Ephesians 4:27

Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.
James 1:8 (NLT)

Stay dressed for battle.

Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:13
