Whoo. I've decided something.
I'm NOT going to be discouraged when Satan tries to attack the things in my life the Lord has done/is doing. I'm not going to believe the lies and I'm not going to give in to the hurt.
INSTEAD, I will rejoice in the fact that he sees the things the Lord is doing in my life as a threat.
I will trust. I will grow. I will be confident in what the Lord has already done and the way He is continuing to work.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
