If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy



“If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy.”  -Christian proverb

Imagine you’re a running back trying to pound the football into the end zone; you’re prepared and you know the play to score the winning touchdown.  The football is handed off to you—BOOM—and the defense knocks you on your backside.  When you pray, the devil plays defense, doing all it can to stop you from reaching God: it will distract you by diverting your attention to everything else you ‘need’ to do today, or better yet you will be convinced that you’re too busy to pray at all. 

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8, NIV).
