Whenever you are tempted, remember that the best way to resist and overcome that temptation is by using SWORD WORDS just like Jesus Christ.

The devil tempted Him three times and each time Jesus rebuked him by declaring "It is written" (Matthew 4:4,7,10) and then quoted Scripture.

Jesus did not answer "I don't FEEL hungry satan" or "I don't WANT bread " or "I don't THINK it's a good idea" or “I KNOW that is a sin”. He began and ended his conversation with the devil by quoting the Word of God.

As the Son of the Almighty God, Jesus could have used a multitude of methods to rebuff the devil, but in His own wisdom He chose to rely on the sure and unfailing Word of God.

The Word of God was 100% effective then and it is still 100% effective today and it shall remain 100% effective for all time for grass withers and flowers fade, but the Word of God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8)

Therefore, learn from Jesus and rely only on the Word of God to resist temptation and fight the devil. Understand that unless "It is written" (Matthew 4:4,7,10) it cannot effectively fight satan.

Go through your Bible and compile SWORD WORDS to help you fight your common temptation.
