The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
cursed are you above all livestock
and above all beasts of the field;
on your belly you shall go,
and dust you shall eat
all the days of your life.
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.”

Dear Lord, you are good. Oh God, you are good. Thank you, Jesus, that you have defeated sin and death by dying on the cross and coming back to life. Thank you that you have the power to forgive my sins and make me new — giving me life that will last forever. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jesus. Amen.
