The Absolute Power of God Is All Sufficient For Godliness

We have all the power, resources, and strength of Almighty God that we need to walk in the way of the Lord as new Creations in Christ.  This is the absolute and sole sufficiency of God and His  Word. The world's psychology cannot aid in this---indeed it is the very antithesis of this. There is no excuse for us to not be conquerors through Christ because all we need is found in the power of God alone:

Eph 1:19  and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 
Eph 1:20  that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,

Eph 3:16  that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 

Eph 3:19  and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Eph 3:20  Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 

2Pe 1:3  His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 
2Pe 1:4  by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

Rom 16:25  Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages
Rom 16:26  but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—
Rom 16:27  to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen. 

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17  that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
