HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST NEGATIVE INFLUENCES
READ THE BIBLE DAILY, its contents will build up in you over time and WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Recognize the fact that you, and every other human being, are, by nature, lazy, indifferent, and susceptible to all suggestions which resonate with your weaknesses. God is on your side. God loves you and He wants to help you.
THINK AND ACT FOR YOURSELF.
Do not EXPECT troubles as they a tendency to show up as expected, and expecting problems is an invitation for problems
2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Every thought. Thoughts as well as words are powerful things.
