I got these notes from a friend's Bible! I can't tell you how much I stuggle with four of them!
Satan has a few tactics. Here is five of them:
1. Doubt - makes you question God's Word and goodness.
2. Discouragement - makes you look at your problems rather than God.
3. Diversion - makes the wrong seem more attractive so that you will want them more that the right things.
4. Defeat - makes you feel like a failure so that you don't even try.
5. Delay - makes you put off doing something so that it never gets done.
