overcoming yourself is better than overcoming a city.
Enemies of man:
1. Death 1 Corinthians 15:26, 51-57
2. Satan 1 Peter 5:8-9, 2 Chronicle 16:9
3. Yourself. your greatest enemy is yourself because he goes everywhere with you and is within. Romans 8:31, Satan can't stop you James 4:7, demon can't stop you Mark 16:17, herbalist and occultist can't stop you Isaiah 54:16-17, critics can't stop you Isaiah 54:17.
The first and biggest victory, is victory over yourself. Proverbs 25:28-you are like a city broken down if you can't control yourself

4. It is written sin shall have no dominion over you. Romans 6:1-14 Psalm 119:89
5. The power of God will keep you. 1 Peter 1:5, Psalm 121:4-5
6. The Holy Spirit will help us. Zach 4:6. Holy Spirit will help us to pray victorious prayers. Romans 8:26
