As I woke up this morning I was thinking about this battle we are all in and trying to understand why things are the way they are. The Bible tells us that things started in the garden Eden when Satan fooled Eve and sin entered the world(Genesis 3). But why did Satan do this? He must absolutely hate humans as he is determined to destroy as many people as possible.
As humans we can not comprehend the motives of supernatural beings like Satan but the one thing that keeps coming to my mind is jealousy. Jealous of what I am not sure, maybe it is because we are made in God's image. I sometimes wonder if Satan actually thinks he can win this war with the Lord or does he know his fate and the hate he has inside of him drives him to drag as many humans with him as possible.
It is obvious that Satan wants to be God, he counterfeits what He does and wants to be worshipped like the most high. It is sad that many people, knowingly or unknowingly, follow the evil one. Their minds are blinded from the truth.
I trust that the Farther is in control and is sovereign. My simple human mind just try's to make sense of it all
