Evaluate, Plan, and Operate- a way to overcome problems

"Evaluate, Plan, and Operate" is a little scheme to keep evil forces on their toes. It works against all types of sin. It's a simple three step process to terminate sin in your life that utilizes simple reasoning to become a stronger Christian. If your in a big rush, then you could read what's in the color red (and read this little remember paragraph).
 REMEMBER: You need to believe in God so He can give you the Holy Spirit  (JOHN 7:38-39) So the Holy Spirit can guide you into all truth (John 16:13). 
P.S also remember that the truth is basically freedom from sin according to John 8:31-34. I plan to make another post about that but anyway, moving on to the three steps:

     1) Evaluate: You need to take a realistic biblical evaluation of your life.  Use it to search for all the places sin might be hiding in your character. How to take an evaluation? It's a good idea to evaluate your life while you are reading you're Bible, so you can see if your life coincides with what the Bible teaches. Since we're all sinners together, (Romans 6:23) it's time to move on to the next step.

     2)Plan: Find some Bible verses that can help you to fight against the problem in your life.You may want to find a Bible verse that makes a promise relating to your issue that will encourage you, or maybe you want a Bible verse that let's you know what you're doing is wrong.
If you are dealing with temptation, for example maybe you'd need a Bible verse like this:
13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (KJV)-Bible.com)
Search for help in places like  http://www.openbible.info/topics/, bibletopics.comhttp://www.biblegateway.com/topical/, or just straight up google!
     3)Operate: Lastly, you have to put your plan into action. Maybe you can practice a few times in your head by rehearsing what you would do if you get into a situation about your problem. Pray to God and ask him to help you beat the problem your facing. Also, don't  forget to keep your confidence in the Holy Spirit, knowing that He will guide you to do what is right.
