God does not protect people from the devil but from pride!
“That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.” – [KJV] Job 33:17
This He does through His Word.
“For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.” – Job 33:14-17
The devil is not our main enemy. Our heart is!
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9
