    When we are tempted and under attack from the fiery darts of the enemy we must remember to walk in Christ always, when we have Christ in mind we notice these things happening so put on the full armour of God and walk with him. Surrender yourself to the Lord, don't lean on your own understanding and take up your cross. Hallelujah!
