(June 29) A Promise in the Midst of Disaster

Adam and Eve, while living in the Garden of Eden, have everything they could ever need. Yet, even in the midst of paradise on earth, they fall into sin. The devil tempted them to doubt the truthfulness of God's Word and the holiness of His character. In a tragic moment, they took the bait. They rebelled against their Creator.

You can the daily devotion about the devil's schemes and strategies that lead us to sin here.

The result of Adam and Eve's sin is that they wanted to hide from God. Although the LORD had given them all they needed for life and enjoyment, in their shameful condition, they seek a refuge from among the trees in the Garden in hopes God will not find them. It is in the darkest moment that light of God's grace pierces the blackness.
