“The Lord God said, “Since man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, take from the tree of life, eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God sent him away from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken.”
Genesis 3:22-23 HCSB
In His mercy, God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden so that they could not eat from the tree of life and live forever separated from God by their sin. It was a necessary separation given for their own good.
Have you had a loss, a separation, you didn’t expect, and, quite frankly, you still aren’t too excited about? Just as God removed Adam and Eve from the idyllic Garden of Eden out of necessity, sometimes He sees it is necessary to remove longtime relationships, good jobs, or comfort from our lives to replace them with something far better.
Is there something or someone you’ve been holding tightly, yet still it is sliding out of your grip? Wiggle your fingers and let go of whatever you were clenching that was/is not God. He has something better for you. HE is that something!🚦
