Grace for you today !
Jesus Your Eternal Excellence!
“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17
“Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5
God never introduced “Tomorrow” when He created man in “Time”. Man was in perfect state, lacking nothing. He had access to every thing in life with one exception.
God gave no promise to man that man should feverishly follow to possess. Because, man was in perfect state and had no lack.
However, the devil cunningly deceived Eve and through Eve , deceived Adam . The Devil presented “Tomorrow“ by saying “You will be like God “. Man succumbed to this temptation and also plunged the whole human race into two major problems:
1. Man’s need to perform something in order to have his desires met in the future. ( Performance mindset )
2. Man’s aspiration to become somebody when God has already made him a unique being ( Identity crises)
Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34 .
Time was created with present tense just like how Eternity is. Man extended this into future . This resulted in all sorts of complications such as fear , anxiety , depression, sickness and the like.
My beloved , when you make the Eternal God as your refuge, He delivers you from the vicious cycle of unending waiting. Always remember you are a spirit – eternal being just like Jesus. You are complete in Christ, forever righteous. Confession of this truth makes you to experience eternity in time . Hallelujah! Amen 🙏
