The Talking Serpent

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.

  1. Hi Becky!! So, so important to be aware of those error suggestions that can be as powerful as a painful bite or as subtle as a nagging itch. 😒 Focusing on God and knowing that He is our true communicator we can live as calmly, peacefully and confidently as that precious fawn. THANK YOU!! 😇
