1 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'?"
2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "
4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
Eve entertained the thought satan put in her head and look what happened.
I bought a new waterer and feeder for my chickens yesterday and today I went down to the barn to set them up. When I went into (we’ll call it the coop) the chickens went crazy I had something new in my hands that they weren’t sure about, they went running everywhere squawking and carrying on. They had no idea that this meant food was available all the time for them now and more fresh water than before. This got me to thinking about how sometimes God introduces new things into my life and I kick up, squawk and carry on. Not realizing or I guess I should say, not recognizing that He is at work in my life.
Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I always want God to speak to me through thunder and lighting, it seems the more I slow down and pay attention he is every where and speaks all the time utilizing everything he has created.
