Ecclesiastes 3:1 – There is a time for everything, and everything on earth has its special season.
I love this piece of wisdom from King Solomon. It has helped me gain perspective on the ebb and flow of life. But I have also learned that every season is not without a dark side. And the creation story took a downward turn when sin entered God’s magnificent garden.
The serpent offered an apple and mankind bit. Then God said, Genesis 3:15 - I will make you and the woman enemies to each other. Your descendants and her descendants will be enemies.
He was talking to the serpent, otherwise known as Satan. The evil one lies, deceives, and attempts to steal our joy and peace. He will stop at nothing to make our lives miserable. He knows our weak spots and will use every trick of the trade to bring us down.
There is however, a second part to Genesis 3:15………One of her descendants will crush your head, and you will bite his heel.
God was talking about Jesus on the horizon, that ray of hope. He knew it would take
a Savior to die on the cross to remove the darkness (evil) that plagued the earth. His love was so great for you that He was willing to lay down His only son for your life.
You are the apple of His eye!
