That Tree

Posted on Posted in Character, Commitment, Trust

                                                     … what about it?

In most peoples’ eyes, the tree of the knowledge of good & evil,
… was put there by God to test man and his obedience.
But in actual fact that tree was there for exactly the opposite reason,
to confirm man’s trust in God.

Consider this … man was created in God’s image,
… and in God’s image man obviously knows good,
so also evil, as that is simply the opposite of what good is!
However, what is missing and what man does not know,
… is how to live or apply good in and to life.
We need God’s guidance to know exactly what God planned,
and how He planned for us to live His goodness, His love.

      God not only put us in charge of creation,
      … but He also gave us a free will,
      so that our decisions would be real and would be truly valid.
      Therefore for us to live those lives God created us to live,
      … we need His input, His guidance, His wisdom.

      and the only way we can truly live that is by explicitly trusting Him!

So, that Tree was what God put in our lives as our link,
… our connection, and our acceptance of His place as Lord,
that place of trust in Him.
There, where in all things in life, good or bad,
… God is the guide, God is the decision maker,
otherwise God is not God in our lives,
because we don’t truly trust Him with our lives!

      Accept that tree,and put your trust fully in God,
      … and all that He planned, the fullness of His blessing will be yours!

      He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
      Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
      I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
      My God, in Him I will trust.”
      Ps 91:1-2

      Covenant talks about trust, Faith talks about trust,
      Victory talks about trust, Peace talks about trust,
      Trust Love and as He is so will you be in this world!
      (1 John 4:17)
