Genesis 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Isn’t it amazing that one of Satan’s most used lies is that God is trying to keep something good from us. Eve falls for the lie and disobeys God. What seems to drive her most of all to me is that Satan lets her know that God is trying to keep her from self fulfillment. He is trying to not let her be all that she could be.
If she will eat of the fruit then she will be as God. She will be able to determine what is right and wrong. Her eyes will be opened.
Now do you fall for that same lie. Do you believe that serving God really, in ways that you might not say publicly, keeps you from fully enjoying life? Do you feel like He takes your money and your time to your detriment?
God really does know what is best for us! He only cares for us. He is at work in us right now for His honor and glory. Everything He does is for our best.
