As we continue in our reading of the book of Genesis today, we may find that chapter 3 presents a grim outlook on the future of humanity. But even in the midst of all the chaos and the "blame games", God assures the serpent he has not won!
Ever since the fall of man, we have been in a continual battle against our adversary; the devil. Satan is a fallen angel, whose sole intent is to cause havoc for each of us. It is his goal to get us off track of what God's plan is for our lives and often times, he will wait until we come to a vulnerable place before putting the hammer down on our head.
This is why it is imperative that we be on our guard every single day...
"Be on your guard and stay awake. Your enemy, the devil, is like a roaring lion, sneaking around to find someone to attack. But you must resist the devil and stay strong in your faith.” (1 Peter 5:8,9)
Whenever we feel like our back is up against the wall, remember that the enemy is trying to discourage us and wants us to think we have lost the fight; he wants us to think we cannot be triumphant.
But let me remind you that ever since the garden of Eden, God has declared Satan to be a liar! So the choice is ours, which voice will we listen to...the enemies or the voice of God?
