Don't let him steal it from you

I had a dream that I was in a crowded passenger car with a bunch of men. Suddenly, I felt someone pulling my wallet out of my front pocket where I keep it. I reacted and it was too late, the wallet was gone. I managed to turn around and a there was a man with sunglasses on and facial hair (beard or goatee) and I knew he did it. I grabbed his sleeve and saw a mechanical device that he used to get into my pocket. I began to tell him out loud that I know what he did and that I wanted my wallet back. None of the other men around us seemed to care one way or another. They were oblivious.

I thought of this verse: "After all, we don't want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief—we're not oblivious to his sly ways!", 2 Corinithans 2:11

The Greek word translated mischief means "ripped off" or "to defraud". The enemy tries to steal our joy, our peace, or our faith right from under our noses. The context of Paul's words are those of restoring the repentant and forgiving them. When we refuse to forgive, restore, and be reconciled to someone who is repenting and asking for forgiveness; then Satan will be able to steal from us and defame us.
