"God always answers in time. So, bug off, Satan. Get out of our face. It makes no difference if you make us fear or not. God is still God and it is impossible for Him to fail."
It isn't even about getting angry enough at Satan. It's realizing that you have a Heavenly Father that loves you beyond anything Satan can threaten. To listen to Satan lying about God's love for you is only torment and it is not true. To agree with Satan is to call God a liar.
And, once we realize that, we might want to ask God's forgiveness and, thereafter, run to Him at onset; to ask God to remove all negativity, as we don't want to dishonor Him in even our thoughts. And, when such a request comes from heart, God is honor bound and faithful to answer.
God is love. That is Who He is. He loved you while you were yet a sinner. He choose you before you even knew Him. He does not change. His love is still there, for your taking, and His love never fails.
Though, best part of warfare is V I C T O R Y !!! And when it comes, through your tears of joy, you might not only thank God for His unfailing love but also apologize for forgetting ... God's word is true, His love is real, and He always answers in time!
Consider lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
