You've probably heard people say: "The devil is such a powerful person. Look at all those things he can do."
To this I say: "Hogwash!" He can't do anything unless WE LET HIM. Where does he get his power from? From us! He doesn't get it from his worldly people ... they don't have any power.
God, our Heavenly Father, is the Creator of everything! Satan doesn't create anything ... he only perverts the things that are already created. He tries to pervert them anyway ... this is the only thing that he can do. He doesn't have any power of his own. The only power he can have is what we allow him to have!
