When Adam and Eve fell, they lost the life of God. Death entered into the world, and from that time on the enemy began a work of destruction.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy….” John 10:10

That’s the devil’s agenda. No matter what he promises you, the ultimate motive behind it is destruction and death.

Whatever he gives you comes with a heavy cost. He is a hater of men so don’t play toy with him.

God’s love for you on the other hand is engulfed in Him giving His Son. He did it to demonstrate His love for you.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life….John 3:16.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,… Titus 2:11.

Hell was made for the devil and his angels, not human beings. God gave his Son so that no human is lured into hell by the devil’s lies.

…The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world… Revelation 13:8

Declaring the end from the beginning,.. Isaiah 46:10

The grace of God who is Jesus Christ Himself was slain before man even sinned. God knew Adam would fall so because of love, He paid for his fall before even creation.

Whatever challenge you are going through, God already made a way out. ( John 16:33)

Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Genesis 3:7.

There’s no amount of self-effort, covering, or penance you can do to pay for the wrongs you have done.

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8

Immediately man sinned, God began pursuing him even if the man was running from Him.

Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid.” * “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”* Genesis 3:9-11

Amidst Adam’s excuses, God pursued him. Instead of killing him, He took an animal and killed it in his place.

I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Ezekiel 16:8

Why doubt His love?
God loves you irrespective of what you are going through.

God’s love to forgive and cover man pursued him from Genesis 3 till Christ.

But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

God ran and pursued you. He loves you more than you think. The blood of Jesus is the revelation of that love for both you and me. He loves you so much that He paid for you not to go to hell.

God’s plan for you was made in eternity and the devil cannot stop it.

He is despised and rejected by men, Isaiah 53:3

Jesus was rejected that you may be accepted.
( See Psalms 27:10)

For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. 1 Corinthians 5:7

Jesus became your Passover to take you from negative to positive, death to life, a curse to blessing, poverty to the richness, rejection to favor, etc.

The cross was not the devil’s idea. It was God’s plot to restore man to Himself.

Which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:8

The devil doesn’t know God’s agenda for your life, it is hidden from him.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 2 Corinthians 4:17

Satan thinks he is destroying you, but because of God’s love, whatever he is doing is just pushing you to your days of glory and manifestation.

What you meant evil against me; God meant it for good…. Genesis 50:20
