Created by Gods’ hands, Eve had a perfect life, everything was peaceful, happy, calm, the life any woman dreams of. Her home was beautiful, nothing was missing, she was happy with her husband, she had control of everything, and nothing could be better.
But all of a sudden because of her disobedience to the Word of God, her entire world came crashing down, her penalty was tough, her mistake cost her a lot and Eve was found guilty. Her sin brought terrible consequences to her own life, her husband and the entire world. Imagine, in just minutes your life changing the way hers did because of one action taken without thinking first, because she wanted to do things her way, she had a marvelous life, now everything seemed dark and mysterious.
But there was hope, Eve knew she was guilty, but she could serve God whom is merciful and forgives, she would give birth to children and would be the mother of all human beings, this showed a ray of sunlight in her darkness. Maybe you find yourself in a similar situation, you couldn’t resist the devils temptation and now you feel lost, empty without God and disoriented. You feel like you don’t have strength to go on, you’ve lost hope, or maybe you think you are not worthy of Gods forgiveness. The shame you feel doesn’t allow you to move on, or come back to church, but know that your life has great value to God.
When you sincerely repent, God is merciful and forgives. Stand up and fight, because your future is ahead of you, just like Eve, God will give you a new reason to smile, because He is your strength.
