Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Each Christian can be victorious over temptation and sin. This is not to say we will never sin, but we don’t plan on sinning. If we do sin, we simply ask God to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We can resist the devil. In the Name of Jesus, we can command the enemy to leave our lives and thoughts.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
2 Cor 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;
