Remember, "...the joy of the Lord is your strength.” - Nehemiah 8:10b
This means that your strength in every situation literally comes from God's Joy and delight regarding the kind of relationship that He has with you. A relationship that is surrounded and right. That's why the Devil is always trying to destroy your character, tempt you to sin, run your name into the ground, occupy your mind with negativity, and kill your desire for a deeper relationship with God.
This is why haters are always seeking to cloud your life with gossip, bitterness, lies and negative conversation about you to other people that believe in you. Both haters and the Devi are essentially weak minded and shortsighted, because they do not understand the depth of what a true meaningful relationship with God means to the life everyone. They both lack the outpouring of Joy that God supplied to those who are able to traverse the pitfalls, setbacks, wounds, and valleys of life while still, maintaining faith and resolve.
But don't worry, because God's Joy and love is the deciding factor and He's loved you before the foundations of the earth. And as long as you posses God's Strength within you and by your side, the Devil and your haters will always be defeated, defeated, defeated in the end.
