If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the devil cannot "make you" do anything. He can, however, tempt you, and he can also oppress you once you give into his suggestions. So just how does this whole temptation thing play out, especially as it relates to the role of the devil?
To begin with, let's remember that the devil was originally one of God's good angels. Then he went rogue, and a third of the angels went with this rebel. But don't forget, the devil is only one angel. Powerful? Of course. But he can only be in one place at one time. He is not omnipresent like God.
This is where the other evil spirits (demons) come in. They are his posse and his servants of iniquity. It's a good thing we don't see them. I don't think we would handle it very well. But God is always with His children, and God's angels are also protecting us and watching over us.
