Recognize the Serpent’s Voice

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.” Although the context of 2 Corinthians 11:3 was concerning deception by false apostles, JUST LIKE EVE, we wives can be led astray from our sincere and pure devotion to standing for our marriages when we are deceived by the devil’s cunning whispers!!!! Don’t trade God’s eternal plan for your marriage by seeking relief from momentary afflictions.
If we are to avoid being fooled like Eve, we must learn to recognize his voice. The same strategy used on Eve has been inflicted down the generations.
RECOGNIZING THE SERPENT’S VOICE:
● First, he will pretend to be your friend and act as if he has your best interests at heart. He will show you all of the options available to you and you will see paths that exist to you other than the one God has shown you. That friend voice is just a friendly tip, suggestion, or advice. Just a filthy seed planted in the soil of your heart waiting to take root when you’re hopeless and looking for something other than what God offers you when your hopes are not set on Him! The innocent suggestion will cause you to consider innocent options “What will you do if {Insert your worst fear or the worst outcome}? This is to get your eyes off God and on planning for the worst.
● He will question God’s Word so your recollection of what God said–His Word –becomes misconstrued and twisted. In light of his question, you will be confused. For example, someone will say or maybe the questions just “arise into your mind from nowhere”: “Is God really with you? Didn’t God promise the heritage of the righteous will be shielded from attacks in their marriage? Or haven’t you done enough praying and fasting to be righteous?”  A wife who has lost her hope may fall for that twisted lie. That question combines some truth with a lie. God’s Word says in Isaiah 54:17 ”
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.”
SEE, the attacks WILL COME. BE READY FOR THE WEAPONS FORM. But they will NOT PROSPER in their intent. AND our righteousness does not come from ourselves or anything we do in our stand but from JESUS!!! KNOW GOD’S WORD.
● If he gets you to believe the twisted lie about what God has said in His Word, he can cause you to not know who God is. That is his plan to create seeds of doubt, distrust and bitterness towards God.
● If he can get you to turn away from God, he can get you focused on what you can do in your own power. HE WILL APPEAL TO YOUR FLESH so that you do what God has NOT TOLD YOU TO DO. That disobedience will result in death. For example, a wife decides that God is not with her and does not care about her marriage. So she goes out and begins having an affair. When God brings her husband back, she is twisted and warped on her heart and the marriage fails because she was caught in adultery. She didn’t wait on God. She didn’t know His Word so she could withstand the enemy’s schemes. Her obedience helped to bring about death to her marriage.
It’s absolutely necessary for a wife to study and know God’s Word. It’s the only way to decapitate the serpent’s head when he comes whispering lies. He will come but you don’t have to listen!  Amen. Have a blessed day everyone!!!
Be strong in the Lord ❤
