Did God really say?

Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

I'm nervous about signing up to read the bible in a year but I'm going to strive to complete it!  Especially since I have many many days of reading the OT and that is sometimes difficult for me!  I don't know why I am so nervous about it, I guess because I really want to...  and I don't really like to fail...

But anyway...  Before I read today, I asked God to make the words come alive to me, let me see Your heart I prayed.  So I start reading today...  Gen 3 and I start laughing.  I mean outloud.

'Did God really say...'

Do you know how many times I've heard 'God told us to date' by young 'ens??  a ton.  And I've heard people say 'God told me to' on things that I think 'I doubt God would ever say that to you' however, God has said some really crazy things to me, things He wants me to do, but it's so ridiculously easy for someone else, but difficult for me.... and so it goes...

But in this case I was laughing because sometimes we know that we are (or are not!) supposed to do (or not) something and we try to justify it by saying 'Did God really say?'.

I know that people think it's nuts that I hear God speak to me, sometimes He whispers and sometimes He about knocks me over.  I'm thankful that I can hear His audible voice and I can hear His whispers in my heart.
