This explains why he could not stand for Christ when he was asked by a little girl if he was one of Christ’s stewards.

How To Defeat Your Weakness
Identify Your Weakness
The first step towards defeating your weakness is the ability to identify the weakness. Once you identify what your weakness is, you can easily work on it.
It is quite difficult to defeat a weakness you have not identified. You must first identify that which is your weakness before you know how to defeat it.

The best way to defeat our weakness is seeking help from God. The scripture says by strength shall no man prevail. This means that our physical strength is not enough to help us defeat our weakness.
How that Apostle Paul was crying to God in the book of Romans 7:15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. God is able to help us out of our infirmities if only we will allow God work on us. Do not rely on your mortal knowledge or strength, call to God for help.
Through The Holy Spirit
The book of Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. This book of the lord makes us understand that if the spirit of Him that raised Christ from dead dwells in us, it will quicken our mortal body.
The spirit of God will help our mortal body to overcome sin.
