"God doesn't throw away His handiwork and start from scratch - instead, He uses the same canvas to repair and make more beautiful the painting marred by the vandal. The vandal doesn't get the satisfaction of destroying his rival's masterpiece. On the contrary, God makes an ever greater masterpiece out of what His enemy sought to destroy.
Satan wants us to give up on God, on our purpose and calling, and on our planet. God reminds us, 'The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.' (I John 4:4) Satan seeks to destroy.... God seeks to restore.... God will win the battle for us."
