The LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate and keep it. The LORD God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden.“
God created Adam and Eve perfect. He made them without defects or flaws. Even in perfection, God saw that it was good for humanity to work. He gave Adam and Eve a flourishing garden full of all manner of fruits. While it would be easy for God to make the trees and plants take care of themselves, God thought it best to let Adam and Eve work for their food. He knew that being idle was not good for them. He gave them everything they needed to have a happy, fulfilled life.
God still cares for you today. He still wants to give everything you need. God knows your needs and sorrows. He knows that sometimes you need time to learn to trust in Him. Sometimes you need an angel in disguise to pull you out of harm’s way. Sometimes you need a compassionate friend to cry on. Whatever you need, God wants to give it to you. All you have to do is ask.
God, you know what is best for me today, tomorrow, and forever. Please give me what I need today. In Jesus Name, Amen.
