In order to stand during temptations or attacks from the enemy, we must get and keep our spirit under control. This should be a top priority in the life of every Christian. We can accomplish this objective through prayer, Bible study, fellowship with other believers, and getting involved in the work of the Lord. When our spirit is under control, it safeguards us against moral failure when we are tested. When our spirit is out of control, the Bible warns that we are like a city without walls.
