Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say…?”
Genesis 3:1 ESV

God blessed mankind with freewill to choose life or death, blessing or curse. The trouble lies in our limited vision and understanding. From the beginning we chose to trust ourselves rather than God – the One who has our best at heart and knows the path of life.

Romans 5:12 ESV

Ask God to show you where you are being deceived. Choose to put your life back in proper order.
