In the first few chapters of the book of Genesis, God established Adam as Eve and gave them power over everything, and everything they needed, he also gave. After the serpent convinced Eve against God’s s specific instructions, Genesis 3:6 tells us that she was convinced after she saw how beautiful and delicious the fruit looked and she desperately wanted it. Allurement is attraction to something flattering or desirable. The enemy knew that eventually Adam’s and Eve’s world would fall apart and they were going to fall apart from God if they listened to him. His goal is to keep us separated from God.
Eve‘s desires for the fruit made her forget the importance of what she already had. According to James 1:15; lust gives birth to sinful actions. In Ephesians chapter 4 and verse 18, states we continue to drift far from the life God gives and everything keeps falling apart around us. He temptations caused her and Adam to become separated from God. They were kicked out of the garden and no longer were they able to have such close relationship with God. However, through God’s infinite mercy, He rescued us and forgave all our sins and provided a way for us to be victorious over the devils temptations. All we have to do is draw closer to Him to receive our treasures. Then we are highly equipped to handle everything around us that seems to be falling apart.
Many of us keep closing our minds and hardening our hearts towards God. Still, even in our rebellion, God loves us so much, that again, he gave us everything we could ever need or want through the sacrifice of Jesuson the cross. Yet, we still do not understand the importance and the power we possess. We can prevent things from falling apart just by yielding our will to God. Some people are not excited by God, but by His creations. Clearly, they are after the charming things they see, hear, taste, and feel, however, we should be chasing God. If you truly desire to have peace in your life even when the storms are raging, I dare you to draw closer to God. He keeps those in perfect peace who’s ;minds are stayed on Him.
Isaiah 26:3 confirms:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
