    Jesus pleased His Father : Jesus is my example : Our Father God was and is pleased with Jesus. Even so : when I walk in God 's commandments I am pleasing my Father. The enemy cannot come into the camp. The Spirit of the Lord has lifted up a standard against him. My enemies are at peace with me.
  • Christopher Olusesi Okuselu: you asked how to overcome the devil 's temptations. The best way to overcome the devil is to stop sinning. And the only way to not sin is to walk in the Spirit. Call on the name of the Lord Jesus and ask Him to cleanse your heart and to baptize you with the Holy Ghost. We can 't serve God and the devil too. Hope this helps.
