1. Discourage you from Worshiping God: I don't have time. I am not important God doesn't need me.
2. Distract you from serving God; My kids need me. My job is more important.
3. To deceive you into disobeying; More money will make me happy. If I had a mate like that life would be good.
People we are in a war. The evil one doesn't think we can win. But the bible says differently. I am going to claim God's promises and fight with all I have. Come on and fight with me.
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
