to something less important… THEN, I can control the outcome…

2. Example
B. The devil uses distractions – To divert our attention away from God [the important thing] to something else [less important] THEN, control the outcome

1. We give the devil too much credit

something less important – THEN, control the outcome

3. The devil knows that he cannot stop us… However, through distractions
we stop ourselves…
