The master of evil spirits, Satan (the devil) decided to get revenge against God for kicking him out of heaven. Knowing how much God loved humanity he came up with a plan to ruin the great relationship that existed between God and human beings (Adam and Eve). Satan decided to use a snake to deceive and lie, to them and successfully managed to trick them out of God’s perfect plan for them! Unfortunately this then became the story and pattern for every other human being after them. Satan is still very active and uses all sorts of tactics to decieve people daily!
Genesis chapter 3 verse 1-7 New living Translation Bible
Now the serpent was the shrewdest of all creatures the Lord God had made. “Really?” he asked the woman. “Did God really say you must not eat any of the fruit in the garden?”
Ofcourse we may eat it,” the woman told him. It’s only the fruit from the tree at the centre of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God says we must not eat it or even touch it, or we will die.
“You won’t die!” the serpent hissed. “God knows that your eyes will be opened when you eat it. You will become just like God, knowing everything, both good and evil.”
The woman was convinced. The fruit looked so fresh and delicious, and it would make her so wise! So she ate some of the fruit. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. Then he ate it too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness.
Then the Lord God asked the woman, How could you do such a thing? The serpent tricked me she replied. That’s why I ate it.” verse 13
Satan the same spiritual trickster is on the loose! This is a big deal because each of us must examine our own lives to see where and when we are also being decieved, lied to and tricked out of God’s perfect plan for us personnally.
How can you tell if this is what is happening to you? Basically you have to ask the right questions. It shouldn’t really take too long to work out! Am I depressed? Is my health taking a battering? Am I in any kind of trouble? Has the rug being pulled out from under me? Do I usually make one step forward and ten steps back? E.t.c What can be done about putting an end to this continual negativity and getting our lives back on track? Why not check out previous post…. How successful are you?
