The Sure Word for Today: God Created Me In His Image.
God’s Creative Power — Part 5.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 1:27 (KJV).
The creative power of God will work for you just the same way it worked for God, Jesus, and all the great men and women of God in the Bible. When Satan misled Eve, it was not some kind of magical power as most people think, it was the word. Simple. Let us dive into this for a moment.
Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
Spot the difference between, the conversation of God with Adam and the conversation of the Serpent with Eve. Here we go:
Genesis 3:1-3 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”
Have you spotted the difference? The difference is “TOUCH.” God did not instruct Adam not to touch the tree. He only told him not to eat. I believe Adam was trying to drive the command and ensure Eve did not associate with the Tree so he added touch in the conversation. The Serpent got the exact word, but the moment he understood Eve added touch I believe he touched the tree as he insisted she will not die. His demonstration was practical and she was convinced and deceived believing God was lying.
The word is not void of power, it creates ideas and imagination. The word of God is powerless when is it unspoken. Learn to confess victory in the face of apparent defeat. Confess abundance in the face of apparent lack. Learn to release your faith in words.
