Our world today is unsatisfied with God’s Word and ways, and our carnal minds are restless and demanding. As human beings, this earthly portion is part of each one of us. But as believers, we must constantly battle it. Although this may seem like a new trend, it is hardly a recent phenomenon. Already in the Garden of Eden, the serpent beguiled Eve with the promise of being as wise as gods if she ate of the forbidden fruit. Eve saw the fruit as being “pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise” (Gen. 3:1–6). Thus we can see that from the very beginning of time, people have sought a peer-to-peer relationship with God, and have wanted to debate with God as an equal. Our human nature wants to reserve the right to accept only the parts of God’s Word that make sense to us.
So late at night,
and the cares of a mother’s heart
weigh heavily upon me.
If only I had someone to talk to,
