did God really say? #dailysoulfood

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1

Imagine Eve sitting in the garden enjoying the moment she was in. She just had a major encounter with her Maker and she received one of the best blessings one can ever have in life - a spouse who loved her and adored her. She lived in this really fantastic and fab neighborhood and all the animals (neighbors) loved her and followed her every command. She was on a spiritual and emotional high and absolutely nothing could go wrong... 

All was well in the garden up until she heard the whisper "Did God really say...?!?!"

It was her first encounter with the enemy of her soul. She had no idea that this enemy more crafty than any of the wildest, craziest thing she's ever seen and known... and his first weapon of choice was to cause Eve to question and doubt God's promises in her life. 

Daily Soul food: The devil still uses his same old tricks today - to try and trap us with his cunning lies of unbelief and doubt. And this usually happens right after a spiritual or emotional high when God speaks a fresh word of hope or promise to us. Anytime you hear a voice in your head questioning the Word of God, His commands and His promises to you... stand guard.  Don't fall for this trap. Instead choose to believe and stand on the Word and the promises of God.
