He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
These are some tips to help you overcome any temptation or problem in your life. Don't just pick one or two, but rather, do them all and you will have success! This list comes from my own personal experiences and battles, trials, temptations and deliverances and healings. God delivered me! He wants to deliver you too!
Claim The Blood (Plead The Blood) of Jesus over yourself, over your property, house, household, family, spouse, children, car, etc. By pleading The Blood of Jesus, you are claiming The Spiritual Power that Jesus' Blood has over sin, death, darkness, evil & over every weapon formed against you. Claim it daily! Rev.12:11 "And they overcame him by The Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death".
Confess with your mouth to God Romans 10:9-10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Accept Jesus and his Love, Mercy, Grace and Forgiveness
Confess to others that you are living for God (then they will either run away or they will support you)
Burn or throw out all influences, pictures, porno, movies, music, magazines, letters, decorations, etc. that would influence you to backslide. Don't wait to sell them. Don't give them away either but rather throw these things away immediately or burn them in a outdoor fire pit.
Anoint your house
Do not allow any evil to enter your house or body
Pray at least 3 times daily & also without ceasing which means before you enter any type of business & after you come out of the business. Pray while driving, walking, jogging, working out, etc. Also ask others to pray for you. See our Prayer Request Page!
Fasting. Mark 9:29
"And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting."
bible reading (every day) even if it's just one chapter or more!
Attend services (often as possible)
Christian music (often as possible) even have Christian music playing in your house while you are away from the house! This helps keep the house clean & lets intruders think there's someone home! Demons do not want to hang out in a house filled with worship.
Praise him daily even during your worst times. Like the apostle Paul did at the midnight hour in prison Acts 16:19-26
Be in thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6)
Think on positive things (Philippians 4:8)
Count your blessings, not your problems
Focus straight ahead on Jesus, not to the left and not to the right
Fellowship with like minded believers
Confine (confess privately) in a Christian friend & to your pastor or deacon/deaconess. James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Faith, knowledge that God is real (Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen)
Forgiveness of self & certain others
Put notes & bible verses around house & on walls. Select your favorite & most helpful bible verses & write them down on paper, perhaps even make signs & place these post-it notes, papers & signs of bible verses in every room of the house if necessary. On doors, mirrors, windows, furniture, etc. Lay your hand on some of these as often as needed to claim the verses or to remind yourself or to defeat temptation.
Testify to others what God has done for you such as healings, answered prayer, blessings, provisions, teachings, peace, joy, contentment, change of life, salvation, etc. (Rev.12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death")
Put on the Whole Armour of God Ephesians 6:10-20
Know that you were born with a Great Purpose!
Write in a daily journal. This will help you remember what God has done for you and also help you realize things.

Follow all these steps to quit smoking. Please forward to friends and Family. This will work if you follow all these steps. If you send me a letter saying this program didn't work, I will ask "Which steps did you leave out?"
Week 1: Keep track of number of cigs smoked for 7 days. Possible 7 days total: 210 or 30 per day.
Week 2: Fast 1 meal. Smoke 29 cigs per day. No more! Place the daily allotment in a separate container, plastic bag or tupperware bowl with lid. Once the container is empty you cannot smoke any more that day. Refill container each day for that day's allotment.
Week 3: Smoke 28 cigs per day.
Week 4: Smoke 27 cigs per day.
Week 5: (Month 2) Fast 2 meals this day. Smoke 26 cigs per day.
wk. 6: smoke 25 cigs per day.
wk. 7: smoke 24 cigs per day.
wk. 8: smoke 23 cigs per day.
wk. 9: (3rd month) Fast 3 meals this day. Smoke 22 cigs per day.
wk. 10: smoke 21 cigs daily.

wk. 10: smoke 19 cigs daily.
wk. 11: (4th month) Fast 4 meals/snack times
5th month: fast 5 meals/snacks times, this may go into a second day, so be it.
6th month: fast 6 eating times/meals/snack times over 1-2 days.
7th month: fast 7 eating times/meals/snack times over 2 days.
8th month: fast 8
9th month fast 9 eating times/meals/snack times over 2-3 days.
etc. etc. etc.
Once you quit smoking you may go back to fasting one day a month or other regular fasting. Do not completely neglect fasting just because God is finished delivering you of this one affliction/addiction. This program not only will help you to stop smoking but will also help you build your fasting ability. Thus also reducing any weight gain that most people experience from smoking cessation.
And when you have done all, be still and see the salvation of the Lord!
Ex.14:13, 2 Chron.20:17, Ps.4:4, Ps.46:10, Mark 4:39
