Genesis 3:4-5

Genesis 3:4-5
" 'You will not certainly die,' the serpent said to the woman, 'For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.' "

App- You know in the movies when there is the little devil on one shoulder and a little angel on the other shoulder, one is contradicting the other. if you really listen to what they are saying, one, the devil, is telling the actor to follow what the flesh is saying, and the angel is telling the actor to follow the righteous acts. I’m sure you have come across a couple of those movies or tv shows. Well if you aren’t sure, one of the movies is “The Emperors New Groove”. Good movie by the way, but not the point. in these situations, its usually the fleshy acts that are committed. the devils voice is heard louder than the angels voice. Has a situation ever happened to you like this? Where you hear Gods voice telling you to do something, but the devils voice is louder. You are tuned into the devils radio station and not Gods. I see this with Eve in Genesis. the devils voice is just slightly louder than Gods voice at this point. God wasn’t present, but Eve even knew that it was wrong to eat the fruit of the tree. She continued on listening to the serpent and was deceived by what could come of it. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Is that what it is to be like God, to know good and evil? For may it be that way, but is that what humans are willing to recognize? I mean, thats where humans fell, is with consuming themselves in evil. Being conformed to the evils of the world. The evils of that serpent that deceived mankind. As we transform ourselves more into the image of Christ and we follow Christs' word, we then can see the differences of right and wrong. As we continue to tune into Gods station and tune off the devils and really listen in on what God is saying to us, we then can make the righteous choices that God is telling us to take. Its not easy to tune into Gods voice. Its difficult to sometimes to see who is speaking to us righteously, God or the devil. You can always tell the difference between the voices because God doesn’t change His word. Gods voice doesn’t change. 

Father, who art in Heaven
how wonderful and amazing you are to me,
how glorious and alive you are,
Lord, I need You! Father, guide me,
use me to glorify you. Father,
You are everything I need. Father,
please forgive me of my lustful, selfish,
and ruthless sins.
Father, I need strength, an emptying of myself
and a filling of You, and the Holy Spirit.
Lord, Thank you for your incredible Love.
Lord, Thank You for Your mercy!
Your Gracious name I pray
