“Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’? ””
Genesis 3:1 HCSB
This serpent was no ordinary animal, having human attributes of cleverness and speech. He was Satan in disguise, and he strategically placed a seed of doubt in Eve’s mind. This is Satan’s M.O.; it’s his usual practice to trick a person into thinking sin is not really sin. We buy into his game when we pause our faith long enough to let him stick his foot in the door of our hearts. We fall for his trickery when we justify our sin by comparing it to someone else’s wrongdoing that SEEMS far worse than our own.
You and I can protect ourselves from getting caught up in the devil’s traps by meditating on God’s Word throughout our days. “I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against You.”
Psalms 119:11 HCSB🚦
