And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.
- Genesis 3:15
It may have been that Satan thought he could play on Eve's emotions more easily than Adam's. In any case, Satan was successful in getting Eve to do what she knew she was not supposed to do. He lured her into sin through deception, and he's still doing the same thing today to anyone who will listen to him.
When God dealt with what Adam and Eve had done, He dealt not only with them but with Satan also. Loren Cunningham and David Joel Hamilton make an interesting observation in their book Why Not Women?: "Ever since the Garden of Eden when God told Satan that the Seed of the woman would bruise his head, the devil has been ferociously attacking women all over the world."
Genesis 3 makes it clear that Satan and the woman are at odds with one another. Why? Satan has hated women almost from the beginning, because it was a woman who would ultimately give birth to Jesus Christ, the defeater of Satan and all of his evil works. Just as God said, her offspring bruised his head (his authority).
Lord, I am aware of the enemy's enmity and hatred every day. I know the spiritual warfare that is set against me. I confess the blood of Jesus as my protection this day, and I declare victory in Jesus' name. Amen.
Praise God for all things, and he will give us the desires of our hearts!
