How to Have Victory in Christ

Personal counsel for those harassed by fear and doubts:

 Refuse to believe that the devil can place a curse on you. Believe that you can belong to God. Believe that He can blot out your past, and all the mistakes you have made. Believe that He is stronger than the devil, and that He will accept you and protect you.

 When a terrible thought comes to mind, or when you hear a bad voice, speak these words: I am now God's little child. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Saviour,leave!

Then, immediately, in the name of Jesus, cry to God for help. Commit your life anew to Him. Promise to read the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy and faithfully obey what you read. Tell Him you are now His property, and ask Him to take care of you.

Then believe that He does this, and thank Him for doing so. Praise Him! Praise Him! You are now His little protected child.

 To begin with, at least once every hour, in prayer ask God for protection against evil powers, and to help you do the next duty correctly. Pray until you have peace in Christ. Then praise Him for answering your prayer. Believe that He is answering it.

 Keep a Spirit of Prophecy book near you, wherever you go. If necessary, sew a little cloth bag to hold it. Every hour, with a prayer for guidance, open the book and read until you have renewed peace in Christ. Then thank God for what you have read, and if it is a point requiring obediencesomething you must do,then tell Him you will do it.

First, go through Steps to Christ in this way. then go through Mount of Blessing, and then Christ's Object Lessons.

 Every morning and evening, read in Desire of Ages. When you have finished that, read Patriarchs and Prophets and Prophets and Kings. Then go back to Desire of Ages. Sometimes just select the book most needful just then.

 Whenever you are especially distressed, ask God to show you what you should read just then, and open Steps to Christ or Desire of Ages.

Keep reading Gods inspired books. Obey everything you read in them. Talk to Him as His little child all day long. Praise God more than you complain, or talk about yourself. Try to find someone to help, even though it may be in a little way. When you talk to people, try to say something which will encourage and help them.

Think often of your heavenly home. You are going there soon to live forever with Jesus! Think happily about this, and praise God for it. Tell Him how much you love Him. You are more precious to Him than the greatest earthly treasure.

 Be sure and get enough rest and eat properly. Go outside every so often and walk around in the open air, breathing deeply. Thank God as you walk for all His blessings.

If you fall, run right back to Him! He will always accept you when you want to come to Him.

Believe the best, and, in His strength, do your best. When your mind or body is weary, just rest quietly in Him.
