Thorny ground believer
As soon as you decide things like this, and you start rejecting the world's spirit of humanist psychology, Eastern mysticism, "it takes a village" government control, the devil really does take notice. He starts sending stronger enemies and stumbling blocks your way.
The good news is that the Lord is sending stronger helps, too. I know that personally and observationally and anecdotally. I wouldn't have a chance without God's help. I like to say "I can't even swallow bread and water without Him." I want to stay in my proper place with the Lord.
