Don't Allow The Enemy To Change Your Perspective
In Genesis 3:1-6, Eve allowed the craftiness of the serpent to change her perspective of God. Eve, who in Verse 3, told the serpent that the fruit was off limits, totally changed her belief in Verse 6, when Even then saw the fruit was good and pleasant to the eyes and she ate of it.
The enemy accomplished this when he planted a tiny seed of doubt in her mind, not about the fruit, but about God. In verse 4-5, the enemy questions if God was being truthful to Eve. The enemy called into question the kind, loving and honest nature of God, and Eve began to see sin as a good thing.
On the contrary, in 2 Kings 6, tells of a time when the King of Syria sent great army to stop Elisha the prophet. That morning Elisha's servant awoke to see the king's army surrounding them. So the servant tells Elisha, and asks him what they should do. Elisha's answer in verses 16-18 show us exactly what we need in these troubled times.
So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Please join me in prayer:
Lord open our eyes to the truth of Your Word, showing us Lord that there are more for us than against us. Lord change our perspective from a worldly one that hoards and takes, to a Godly perspective that shares and gives! Lord help us to be Your hands and feet, to show the light of Your love to everyone around us in these troubled times.
