Genesis 2 vs
15.》And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.~《KJV》
The responsibility of mankind did not start after the fall of the first parent. It was part of God’s agenda for mankind to live a responsible life even from the beginning. God created man in His own image and likeness to function like Him. And Papa God is a working God. He is not a lazy Supreme being. It is true He created man for His pleasure. It is also true man was created to enjoy God’s abundance and resources. However, one ultimate purpose of God for Adam in the Garden was to DRESS and KEEP it.
In other words, God gave man a working responsibility concerning the Garden. _Eden in the Hebrew language means “pleasure or delight”._ The root word of Eden also implies luxury or delicacy. Cherished one, why would God create man in the Garden of pleasure or delicacy and not the Garden of pain and sorrows? God’s intention for mankind has always been the best and it will forever be such.And in the midst of the abundance, pleasure or delicacy, God told mankind to DRESS and keep the Garden. To dress the Garden means to work or till it. The Garden was to be prepared or cultivated for the right purposes.
To keep also means to guard, observe, protect, uphold or maintain from destruction or corruption. Beloved, God demands from you to DRESS and keep whatever assignment, pleasure, purpose, gift or ability He has delivered into your hands. It is your duty to DRESS and keep it in the best and excellent state using the given wisdom and resources. Focus on dressing and keeping your God-given garden. Refuse to lose it. It is your duty to DRESS and KEEP the marriage, gift, ministry, business, job, company etc that God gives unto you. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Precious Father, I thank You for given me a glorious treasure of delight. I believe whatever gift You give, You also release the wisdom to use and keep it. I humbly submit to You as You empower me to DRESS and keep the Garden You have given me. I refuse to lose it in Jesus Name. Amen!
◇ Enjoy A Gracious Wednesday◇
Pray that God’s Spirit would empower you to dress and keep what He gives you.
