The 4 Ds' of the Devil!
John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and
to kill, and to DESTROY: I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have it more abundantly.
The devil who hates God wants to destroy God's creation and that

- 1 John 3:8 (KJV) He that committeth sin is of the devil;

- John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me
ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but

throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to
help in time of need.
IV. DISCONTENTMENT: Discontentment is a mistrusting of God.
Contentment is trusting God implicitly. Thus, discontent is the
opposite of faith
- Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) Let your conversation be without
covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he
hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
