Study and know the Word of God for yourself. Then you can apply it to your life. When things begin to turn in the opposite direction you will have the knowledge base required as to how to handle it. Stay humbled and let go of any pride that may rise up in your spirit. God is the only spirit that should take up residency in your temple. When you feel pride rising up on the inside, begin to worship the Father who art in heaven. He’s waiting on you to give him all the praise and glory He deserves.
