Eve's Temptation - Insights into Satan's Strategies

The temptation of Eve gives us some helpful warnings about the way Satan tempts us today. This 1-minute devotion

The temptation of Eve offers insights into Satan's strategies with us (Genesis 3:1-7):

1. He appeals to our ungodly desires
For Eve, the forbidden fruit; for us, it can be anything we shouldn't have/do.

2. He contradicts God's words. 
Satan told Eve she wouldn't die if she ate the fruit. He tells us that doing the wrong thing won't hurt us.

3. He promises self-enhancement.
He told Eve the forbidden fruit would make her like God (Genesis 3:5). He tells us that sin will make us smarter, happier, or more popular.

Satan is constantly looking for ways to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10; 1 Peter 5:8). 

Let's beware of his tactics and remember this promise:

"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." 1 Corinthians 10:13
