If Adam were here today
I know what he would say
“Why open the lying door
I’ve seen it all before”.
The same lies are shoulder tapping
Just in a modern wrapping
Shoveling deceptive stuff
Saying “you’re not enough”.
“You need to be something more
Than what God has in store
Don’t worry about the job
To get what you’ve already got”.
Fill the gap and get a sweat
It takes work for you to get
What you need to achieve
Not God’s gifts you can receive.
He would say “can’t you see
God’s provision is all you need
Don’t repeat my silly mistake
It’s your life that is at stake”.
The lie – perpetrated in the garden by a lying serpent, that you are not enough with God, and you need to step into the breach by “being all you can be”.
who exchanged the truth of God for THE LIE, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (Romans 1:25 NKJV) (emphasis mine)
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe THE LIE, (II Thessalonians 2:11 NKJV) (emphasis mine)
Not “a” lie, but “the” lie…
