Like Eve, we want to feel smart, but nothing is more ignorant than choosing man’s intelligence over God’s.
Lord God, when You asked the woman in the Garden, “What is this you have done?” her response was, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate” (Gen. 3:13).
Just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, the minds of even those with a sincere and pure devotion to Christ can be led astray (2 Cor. 11:3).
Please help me always be aware that the enemy will be up to his old tricks. Even the devout believer can be led astray if not held continually on the path by Your Word and keenly aware of Satan’s schemes. Help me not be deceived by the serpent’s cunning.
