The serpent was appealing to the lust of being your own god and calling
your own shots. At this point, Eve was still without sin, but her
willingness to listen to satan’s lies had put her on the slippery slope
of temptation. Satan tried the same tactic on Jesus when he offered Him

Jesus didn’t listen to satan’s temptations; He cut him off with the
Word of God.
Many Christians deal with satan’s temptations as Eve did, so it isn’t
surprising that large numbers of people who show up for church on
Sunday mornings live our lives as though we are our own gods. You may
say, “I don’t have any idols!” No? Any time you decide what you are
going to do with your life and how you are going to do it without
regard to God’s Word and without seeking His kingdom first, you have
declared your intention to become your own god.
You are the giver of life. Thank You for placing Your glory on me. I am
Your child, and You are my God and Your ways are my path. In Jesus’
