Satan didn’t know it; the first Christmas was just around the corner!

Determined to Make a Way

And the Lord said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this,
thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the
field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the
days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman,
and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head and thou
shalt bruise his heel.

Genesis 3:14,15

In this passage, God is addressing satan directly. Satan must have thought, “Wait a minute. A woman doesn’t have a seed. The man carries
the seed. What does God mean by the ‘seed of woman’?”

God was giving a hint to satan that the seed of woman was going to
regain total authority and was going to bruise his rock-hard head. It
was safe to give the devil hints because he doesn’t have revelation
(and he definitely doesn’t know all things, as his Creator does).

All satan knew was that something or someone would be coming on a
mission from God to do battle with him and that he had better get ready
for it! God knew that to have authority in this planet at all, His
emissary would have to possess the full image of expression available
on this planet. That meant He would have to be born here in a human
body. God was unwilling to allow the man He had made to fall. God was
determined to make a way. Satan didn’t know it, but the first Christmas
was just around the corner!

Prayer for Today

I magnify Your name for making a way, for regaining authority. Again
and again, You make a way for me when there seems to be no way, and I
praise You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
