Daily Devotional – The Foundation of Our Faith 14

Daily devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Genesis 3:5-7. Have you ever watched how a horse will eat grass outside of their fenced area? The same grass that grows on their side of the fence grows outside the fence!

“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.”

Sin wants more and more!

Like horses, sheep, and goats, sinful humans do not settle for the provision of their God. Within the constraints and protection of the law of the Almighty is the provision and blessing that we need. Unhappy and not satisfied with what is freely given, we strive for more.

A horse can easily reach and feed itself with the grass within their reach.  However, they will stretch and contort themselves to reach a blade of grass that appears to be more pleasing. Like the horse, and Adam and Eve, we crave that which has been restricted.

When we follow the word of God, we see a Father that loves us and provides for us. We have all that we need in Him and so why would we need to consider anything outside of His provision?

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you Father that Your provision and blessings are more than enough for me. Forgive me for always wanting more, and wanting that which You have not provided for me. Help me to find pleasure and satisfaction in You and Your provision.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
