Learn to discern the difference between the temptations that present themselves in your head, from the direction I give you in your heart–your inner man–your spirit. I will always lead you through your heart, never your head, and the enemy of your soul will always try to cast thoughts at you through your head.
Resist the temptations in your mind–those of the flesh, for they wage war against your spirit and often cause disappointment and regret.
Persist. Setting your mind to follow your heart; do not follow your mind with your heart.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Ja 4:7

“Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will of God and receive what is promised.” Heb. 10:35-36
