Did God Really Say?
“Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1
The very first question in the Bible was asked to a women, and Eve was the first women to be tricked by the enemy.
Read Genesis 3:1-7
If the serpent’s words were written in today’s vernacular, it would read–
“Seriously, did God really say?”
From the very beginning women have been challenged to doubt what God really says. The serpent cast doubt on Eve to diminish what God said. He caused her to question what God says and the truth in it. The serpent was – and is – outright deceitful.
What God said really was true and scripture proves it over and over. Satan tries continually to get us to doubt God’s word. He lies and tells us God is withholding something that’s good for us. Our enemy is constantly working to get us to doubt God and what truth is.
The truth is… we are who God says we are!
Scripture is full of words God uses to describe the qualities within each of His children. This year in our local women’s ministry we are focusing on some of these beautiful truths about us and setting our minds on believing them- BELIEVING GOD!
It says… I am chosen, redeemed, forgiven, loved, highly favored, worthy, heard…
A key verse for my own life this past year is:
“But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who BELIEVE and are saved.” Hebrews 10:39
I am unshrinking!
I’ve been focusing on Believing God’s word and not shrinking back. I wear my BELIEVE bracelet and at just a glance, I am reminded to believe who I am in Christ.
I am forgiven. 1 John 1:9
I am blessed. Ephesians 1:3
I am loved. Jeremiah 31:3
God invites us to remind our souls who we are in Christ.
Take a journey with us and go on a hunt through His word. What does God’s word say about you?
God called me to take this reminder to Haiti while serving there last month for a women’s conference. As we met with the Haitian ladies who are serving as church leaders for the women’s conference, we celebrated with them what GOD REALLY DID SAY about us!
And then we reminded them…
And they reminded each other!
Oh, the beauty of this scene across the rooftop that morning.
Spend some time reading His word, reminding your soul who you are. Then take a few moments and remind another. We are victorious, friends, God really did say!!
…and let me leave you with one more little one I just found yesterday–
I am snatched. Judges 6:9
Oh, the never ending love found in God’s word!
