He can open doors for you if you let Him. Let's go to:
Psalms 28:3 "Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief [is] in their hearts."

wicked (Strong's 7563) morally wrong, bad person, guilty, ungodly, wicked or that did wrong; (from Strong's 7561) to be wrong, to disturb, violate, make trouble or do wicked;

Stay close to Him and do not let things of this world stop the work that you have to do for Him. Things of this world are not permanent, but dear God's Love is so stick with Him. Know that you are the enemy to things of this world and the devil because you stand by God's Side fighting here for Him. Be on the offensive and associate with people that lift you up to Him and not pull you from dear God and what He has you to do. Align your thoughts with dear God and those that stand with Him, too. Let's continue:
Isaiah 16:4 "Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land."
spoiler (Strong's 7703) to be burly, powerful, to ravage, dead, destroy, oppressor, rob, spoil or lay waste.
The spoiler is Satan and he is the ruler of this world so look up to dear God and keep aligned with Him. Let's go on:
Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
And Revelation 20:2 "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,"
dragon (Strong's 1404) to look, fascinate or dragon;
devil (Strong's 1228) a traducer (misrepresenter or slanderer), false accuser or devil;
satan (Strong's 4567) the accuser, devil or satan.
The dragon is Satan or the devil, the one that is always there to falsely accuse you and pull you from dear God. Stay in the Word that way your thoughts are aligned with dear God and your focus on Him and not things of this world.
Keep aligned with dear God's Spirit by spending time in prayer with Him and talking to Him about what you can do for Him and how better to use the gifts that He has given you. Ask that He open you up even more to what it is in this world that you can accomplish for Him in His Plan.
Finally, He can open doors for you if you let Him. Let Him do His Work through you in His Plan. Be that warrior for Him in His Plan of Love and ready to fight for Him. He is so happy to have you on board and glad you are so faithful to Him. HE cares so much for you. Remember that HE has already won the victory through His Son so be joyful in knowing He has overcome and you are reaping His Rewards today because He loves you so much.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service

I love your devotional and all the meaning behind it. I agree with it whole-heartedly.
If I had to name any thing that could be improved, I guess it would be this:
"Stay in the Word that way your thoughts are aligned with dear God and your focus on Him and not things of this world."
This may be better:
Stay in the Word. In doing this, your thoughts will stay aligned with Dear God's, and your focus will be on Him, and not on things of this world.
