Prayer Devotional: Day 204

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. – Genesis 3:6 NIV

You don’t need the law of attraction; you just need Jesus!

A while back, when I was growing my online business, I listened to and paid for a lot of coaching to learn The Secret, which teaches that if you visualize what you want, and feel that you already have it, you’ll have it.

Eve already had everything, except what she thought she wanted: wisdom of good and evil. So, she focused on what she didn’t have and listened to an outside authority who lied to her.

We need to be careful whom we listen to. When we focus on Jesus, everything we want falls into place, and sometimes our desires change. We don’t have to visualize conditional happiness. We can just be happy because Christ saved us. We don’t have to visualize that when we will have enough wealth, vacations, or perfect conditions, we’ll be happy. We can already be happy in Christ. He can show us what contentment and peace is really like. Amen.
