You can prevail over the trinity of evil by:
Renouncing your will.
Resigning to HIS will.
Conclusion: Christ sacrificed his flesh on Calvary, but in Gethsemane he sacrificed his will.
It was the will of the Father for Christ to die on the cross.
Also it is the will of God that we: deny ourselves, take up the cross and follow HIM.
Take your hands off your life and yield your will to the Lord.
