This morning I have been reading and studying the third Chapter of Genesis where Eve is seduced by the serpent. In thinking about that crafty, mesmerizing thought that the snake represented, I realize Eve was not harmed, only hypnotized into believing that there was a power opposed to God. But we all know the outcome of that allegory. Genesis 3:13 reads “Then the Lord God said to the woman, ‘What is this you have done?’ And the woman said, ‘The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” The serpent only made a suggestion! He did not force that apple on Eve! I think about today when my thought feels mesmerized about something, I only need to still my thought, turn to God and know that He is all-powerful and always there for me and refuse to listen to error. Where is my focus and who am I believing? Today I choose God.
