Father, this story feels hopeless. The decision of sin, it won. The weight is heavy.
But I thank you that that isn't the end of the story. You, the loving Father, sought and met them in their sin. And without them ever understanding it, you gave them the promise of a Savior. It is here, in the mess... the constant struggle with sin, that the gospel begins.
Help me to be prepared for this battle in the spirit. Help me to fight for hope in the prophecy of the Savior, to remember that you reign as Victor.
