Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The devil’s major weapon against you is deception!
Jesus prayed to the Father for us, “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth” (John 17:17). The truth will always point you towards God. But Jesus said about Satan, “He is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).
Satan’s strategy is to distort the truth, just like he did with Eve in the Garden of Eden, even with Jesus in the desert. He wants to make you question God. He attacks you through your reason. God’s reminding you today: fill your mind with the truth of His word if you want to be able to combat the lies of the Devil.
