Devotional For December 18, 2023

And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭3‬:‭15‬

After the sin in the Garden of Eden, God’s mercy and redemptive plan began to unfold. This verse marks the first announcement of the coming Savior, the Seed of the woman, who would engage in a battle against the serpent, representing sin and evil.

The promise of enmity between the woman’s Seed and the serpent signifies the ongoing struggle between good and evil throughout history. The imagery of bruising the serpent’s head and enduring a bruised heel suggests a costly battle – a battle that Christ, the ultimate Seed, would willingly undertake to rescue mankind from sin.

As we journey through this Christmas season, be reminded that God’s redemptive plan is at work, and the victory over sin has been secured through Jesus Christ. In our daily struggles, we can find hope and strength, knowing that the Seed of the woman has triumphed over the serpent, and through faith, we share in that victory.

Pray

Lord, thank You for the promise of redemption. Help me to trust in the victory secured by the Seed of the woman, Jesus Christ. Help me find strength as I face the challenges of life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
