We get a new job that we believed God for, however, the job pays us less than we desired. We can thank God for our job or wonder why He didn’t completely answer our prayer. We get into a car crash. God spared our lives, however, we received a broken arm. We can rejoice that God spared our lives or wonder why He allowed us to receive a broken arm instead of coming out of the accident injury free. We’re in a successful relationship, however, our best friend is in a relationship where money is not an object and they frequently travel. We can continue to enjoy our relationship or slowly begin to resent the relationship we’re in.

The enemy has a way of minimizing the blessings we receive. In spite of all the joy we may initially feel when we receive our blessing, he’ll show us what we’re missing out on. Sound familiar? It’s the same trick he used against Eve. Out of all the trees in the Garden of Eden, Satan magnified the tree that was off-limits. Instead of being grateful for ALL God provided, she was enticed by the one thing she couldn’t have, and sinned against God.

Never get deceived into minimizing what God has done. Receive, accept, and be grateful for all God has done and for the blessings coming into your life.

Genesis 3:5 Satan says…”For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
