(Learning to Let God Lead….. One Day at a Time)
-A Woman Redeemed
Hello All!!  Last week our devotion focused in on the reactions of Adam and Eve after they had sinned and God confronted them.  As we learned, they shifted blame, threw others under the bus and evading all accountability. I still can't help but wonder how God may have responded if they had fallen on their knees in repentance rather then try to run from accountability.  But, I guess that is neither here nor there.  

This week we will dig into more scripture!!  We will be reading and focusing in on the grave consequences of their sin.  With every choice we make comes either positive or negative consequences, and their actions certainly delivered to them a life time of consequences that would effect every generation that came after them.

So... for this week... read Genesis 3:14-19 and answer the following questions!!!  HAPPY DEVOTION!

1. Do you find it interesting the God chose to punish the serpent, which was Satan in disguise, even though Satan had already been punished by being thrown out of heaven?  Why do you suppose God punished the serpent knowing it was Satan in disguise?

2. God tells the serpent that he will put enmity between he and the woman and between his offspring and her offspring.  He also tells the serpent that his head shall be bruised and the heel of man bruised by the serpent?  Does this speak to you in any way?  What do you believe God was revealing to the serpent about his life to come?

❤Wife’s Response:








3. What was God's punishment for Eve? What does God mean when he tells Eve he her "desire" shall be for her husband and he shall rule over you?  (the answer to this is quite interesting!)

4. What was Adam's punishment? 


❤Husband’s Response:








❤Wife’s Response:








5.  How do you see these punishments and consequences still playing out today, perhaps in your own life and marriage? 


❤Husband’s Response:








❤Wife’s Response:








There is so much to learn from this chunk of scripture and so much you can apply to the world we currently live in.  You can begin to piece together the reason for the intense struggles we face today in the union of marriage and how imperative it is to have God as your ally.  Without His protection and constant strength being fed into you, it is extremely easy to go astray and cause destruction to your marriage, even if unintended!  

I will be praying that God reveals great and wonderful things to your hearts through this 

Peace and Blessings

In India, marriage is one of the biggest events in a person's life. It marks the beginning of a new season. Marriage is essential for every person in India; at least this is the feeling of many. It is not a simple event. An Indian marriage stands out from the rest. This is essentially because many marriages in India are arranged.
