He desires us to be alive.
He desires us to have joy.
The devil hates it.
The devil wants deceived and he wants us destroyed.
God desires for our lives to be abundant
while the devil desires for our lives to be ruined.
The Bible makes it clear in Genesis,Job,Matthew and more.
God however gave us a choice before us
of life or death,
of blessing or cursing,
yet the choice is up to us
and those who choose life and blessing are wise.
