Bible Reading: Genesis 3:9-11
📖9….”And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
📖10….And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
📖11….And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?”
🔥Human beings were created free from danger because we were God’s image and likeness. Since God has no danger, we too hadn’t, until we exposed ourselves to danger through disobedience, when Eve had unholy communication with the serpent. The serpent in Gen 3:1 is described as the most subtil animal God made. Communicating with it, was communicating with God’s enemy – 1 Cor 15:33. By this singular act of the woman, humanity as a whole was compromised and our cover was blown. So, when God came in Gen 3:8 to have fellowship with man and found him not, he knew they had disobeyed him since they hid themselves from Him.
🔥🔥The cover of protection the Church and the members have is obedience. Obedience to God is an affront to Satan. What makes a man or woman a servant of God is not the ordination, the sermon, the large congregation, or miracles around such a person, but OBEDIENCE to God – Rom 6:16. You can’t say you are God’s servant if you don’t obey God’s word. Before Samson was born, God gave his parents a word to obey. The mother had to live in that obedience before she became pregnant. In Judges 13:12, Manoah, the father of Samson asked the angel how to bring up the child that would be born, and the angel referred him to what the wife had been doing. Samson’s victories were hidden in his obedience to these instructions.
🔥🔥🔥Since it takes wisdom to obey God’s word and live a victorious life, Proverbs 4:7 says, wisdom is the principal thing, not power. Beloved of God, our prime parents, Adam and Eve, were exposed to danger at the point of their disobedience to God’s word in Eden. Observe that in Gen 3:15, God decided to put enmity between man and the serpent because of disobedience. This was also unconsciously extended to other dangerous animals by Satan, that were once man’s friends. Today, even the cats, dogs, etc, in our homes want to kill man. Believers, stop disobeying God to stop exposing yourselves to danger.
🙏You roots of disobedience I inherited from my mother’s womb, I refuse to obey you henceforth in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, every defeat I have experienced in life as a result of disobedience to you, restore victory back to me as I start living in obedience in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My Father my Father, every failure in my life that is resulting from Adamic nature in me, I turn you to victory now, in Jesus’ name.
