“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Genesis 3:1 (KJV)
Our Father God is very specific with His instructions and teachings on how we are to live all of which are outlined in the Word. Some think that these teachings and instructions are restricting, not understanding that a loving Father protects His children by giving them instructions. The enemy, just as he did in the scripture above when he was talking to Eve, comes to tempt us to doubt what God has said to us. My sister in the Lord calls this “snake talk”. It is very important that we recognize this “snake talk” and are prepared to answer back with “it is written” just like Jesus did. If you have begun to doubt God’s promises for you, who have you been talking to? If you do not see a way out of your situation, who have you been talking to? If you are tired, ready to quit and give up on your faith, who have you been talking to? Stay with your Heavenly Father’s way of life. Follow His teachings and instructions and you will see victory if you do not quit!
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I repent for the times when I have listened to the enemy and doubted Your Word. You are and have always been faithful to me even if I did not recognize it. I purpose to listen to Your voice and follow Your direction for my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
