The Bible says the devil seeks those he "may" devour. That means it's not automatic. Our ungodly sinful behavior gives the devil access to mess with us in our lives. This is why godly behavior is important. The sinful stuff we do is not going to make God angry with us. But that sinful stuff will poison your soul. It drains life from you and it causes life-draining issues for everyone around you.
Even if you keep your ungodly behavior hidden from everyone, it still affects those around you negatively, believe it or not. But the worst thing is this. That stuff you do that you know is wrong and sinful gives the devil access to devour you. Refuse to be devoured. Change course so that you make godly decisions and take yourself off the devil's menu!
Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. — 1 Peter 5:8 (WEB)
