Realize your vulnerability

Don't ever try to argue with the Devil. He's better at arguing than you are, having had thousands of years to practice.

God warns us never to get cocky and overconfident; that is the recipe for disaster. Jeremiah said, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.” That means we are good at fooling ourselves. Given the right circumstances, any of us are capable of any sin. We must never let own our guard and think we’re beyond temptation.
Don’t carelessly place yourself in temping situations. Avoid them. Remember that it is easier to stay out of temptation than to get out of it. The Bible says, “Don’t be so na├»ve and self=confident. You’re exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence, it’s useless. Cultivate God-confidence.”
From the book of T.P.D.L.
