Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
This morning as I did my daily Bible intimacy with our Lord, He spoke and said to me, "Satan is playing mind games with you. His aim is to intimidate you with his mind games. Beat him at his mind games."
Later this a.m., our Lord reminded me that I have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16
...But we have the mind of Christ.
Also, our Lord reminded me that I'm possessed. Certainly, not possessed by the devil but possessed by Almighty Most High GOD!
The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
According to our Lord, that wasn't enough because He goes on to inform that the saints possess the kingdom.
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment ws given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
...for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
In addition, we have witnesses.
1 John 5:9
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:...
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,...
And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the Lord which he spake unto us; It shall be therefore a witness unto you,...
For those who are in tenacious intimacy with GOD, Satan ain't running nothing but out of time.
I heard a pastor say, "Dogs don't bark at parked cars." So if Satan ain't barking...people are parked. Our Lord didn't choose us to park - for such is spiritually unprofitable and a disgraceful representation. GOD chose us to move forward in the holy name of JESUS.
As I write this, our Lord spoke and stated that some of His people are growing weary of unanswered prayers. Foremost, He says, "2 Corinthians 13:5, 'Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.' And then, remember tenacity, diligence, and persistence."
How many times did Naaman wash in the Jordan before he was cleansed of leprosy? - 2 Kings 5. How many times did they march before the walls of Jericho fell? - Joshua 6. How many times did Elijah tell the servant to go before the abundance of rain fell? - 1 Kings 18. We are told to forgive seventy times seven. - Matthew 18. We must prevail, persist, and commit to remain rooted and grounded in our Lord - yes, grounded and settled indeed. Our prayers should consistently have a posture of "Thy will be done, Lord." That is how our Lord JESUS prayed when He was in agony. We are commanded to have the mind of Christ.
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar;...
Daniel 3:17, 18
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel,...
1 Kings 19:18
...all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

1 Corinthians 15:28
And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
