Let God do it His way! 

I often hear people say that we don't need God to be good people, & you're right. You don't need God to be a good person. I worked hard, paid my bills on time, helped others in need, didn't cheat, lie or steal & I loved everyone the best I could. You know what all that being good got me? Not much. I was abused & lost everything, I dislocated my back & slipped it out 6 more times in the matter of a year after which put me in debt cause I couldn't work, & I lost a lot of best friends due to the divorce I went through...so yes, yes you can be a good person without God but that doesn't mean the devil isn't real and that doesn't mean he's going to stop trying to steal, kill and destroy every part of your life. God isn't here to make us good people, he's here to teach us how to defeat our real enemy. Just like the laws of physics teach us how the world works, the laws of God teach us how the spiritual world works. When you stop looking at them as rules and regulations & start realizing that they are guidelines to living the most productive, successful life, your entire world will change. Don't let the devil lie to you and convince you He doesn't because of X, Y or Z.
God loves us!
