Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Light of the World and experience divine direction in life !
“and Jehovah God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
Genesis 2:9 YLT98
“And the woman saith unto the serpent, ‘Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we do eat, and of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden God hath said, Ye do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest ye die.’”
Genesis 3:2-3 YLT98
It is interesting to note that God saw the tree of life in the midst of the garden of Eden whereas the woman saw the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden.
What God saw in the midst of the garden which is the tree of life is undoubtedly true & right. It couldn’t be otherwise. But then what about Eve’s claim about the tree of Knowledge & evil being in the midst of the garden?
Eve’s mind was first of all drawn towards the tree of knowledge of good & evil and then she began to see it in the midst which was her center of attraction.
Before any temptation is shot at us, first of all the devil devices a strategy to change our focus from the purpose & the calling of God in our lives.
My beloved, What occupies your mind ? What is your focus in life ? What is the center of attraction of your life? When Jesus becomes your focus & the center of your life, He shall satisfy every other need & desire of your life even without you asking for it by exceeding your expectations.
David himself testified of this truth stating that surely goodness and mercy shall follow him all the days of his life because the focus of his mind and the center of his heart is set on the Lord who is his shepherd. ( Psalm 23)
Following Jesus means setting our minds (focus) on Jesus, the Light of the world who will enlighten our hearts and minds to be steadfast in the predestined pursuit of life by clearing all unwanted clutter. Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus the Light!
