Okay, so this challenge stumped me. I have to admit I went down a rabbit hole with it and got stuck in the fact that the devil was in the details instead of focusing on the details themselves.
I just couldn’t wrap my head around the Devil being in them.
So I looked up the origin of the phrase and this is what Wikipedia has to say about it.
“The devil is in the detail” is an idiom that refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details, meaning that something might seem simple at a first look but will take more time and effort to complete than expected and derives from the earlier phrase, “God is in the detail” expressing the idea that whatever one does should be done thoroughly; i.e. details are important.
So there you have it. I like the original phrase better and as far as I’m concerned, if you keep God in the details of your life, there isn’t any room for the Devil to be there. If you keep God in the details then that catch or mysterious element that will divert you is more likely to be avoided.
Do me a favor and stay out of my details. There’s no room for you there.
