Without God’s favor, His strength, no Christian can survive any satanic attack. God’s favor is seen in the Holy Spirit living inside the believer. Jesus said in the Book of Luke

[Luke 10:19] 19 “Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing at all will harm you.

authority” Refers to the power of God in the name of Jesus. Only Christians have it. 

“trample on snakes and scorpions” The Lord has given the believers the power, by His Spirit, to defeat the demonic spirits who are described as snakes, and scorpions. Snakes and scorpions are dangerous venomous animals that with one bite can cause pain and death.

2 Thessalonians 3:13-Continue To Do Good

“13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.”

“never tire of doing what is good” The word “good” that is refer here is one that pleases God, according to His Word which is the Scriptures. The Word of God teaches us to never lose heart in doing God’s will because at His return, we will be rewarded.

2 Thessalonians 3:11- Don’t Become A Stumbling Block To Others

11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.

We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive” Paul is told that some of the believers don’t just stay at home, but they go out and become a stumbling block to others, getting into their business.

[Titus 3:10] Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.

They are not busy” Instead of earning money or working in God’s ministry, they are open to spiritual attack from the enemy to get them to do things that are contrary to God’s Word.
