Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1 (NIV)

In polls as recent as 2016 about one third of Americans don’t believe in the existence of God. Interestingly, about the same percentage doesn’t believe in the existence of the Devil either.

These beliefs certainly have serious ramifications. Consider our ability to fight disease prior to knowing about the existence of germs. And yet the combined death and devastation to the human race due to these microorganisms reached into the millions before scientists could confirm their existence.

We can’t see the Devil, but we can certainly observe clear evidence of his work. It started back in Genesis 3. Read the account. He started his evil work by getting Eve to question the veracity and goodness of God.

Don’t be fooled. The Devil is alive and at work. Don’t doubt that he is real.

But more importantly, don’t doubt the love and power of God. You are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ!
