Because the devil comes to steal, to kill and to destroy does not mean that he will. Coming to do something and doing something are two completely different things. Just because he comes to destroy your hopes and dreams does not mean you have to give them up. Just because he comes to make your life miserable does not mean your life has to be miserable. Just because he comes to take your joy does not mean you have to give up your joy.
You have the greater One on the inside, and whatever the devil means for bad, God will turn it around and cause it to work for your good! Jesus came to give us life, to give us an abundant life. Why not let God do in your life what He came to do for you, instead of letting the devil do in your life what he came to do against you?
