One should understand Krishna in truth and this one can do only by serving a pure devotee. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.09.24.
The best use of power and opulence is to engage them in the service of the Lord.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.15.5
The Police department may be horrible for the criminals, but to the government it is a department as good as university department. Similarly, mahamaya is horrible to the conditioned soul, but to the liberated soul, there is no fear of mahamaya , because he is protected by yogamaya.
The Lord can be served simply by adoring Him and accepting Him.
Srimad Bhagavatam 2.9.36,
