“…For God has appointed another seed for me…”
(Genesis 4:25, NKJV)
What does If mean he has another seed for me?
Are we planting a garden?
Will these seeds bear fruit to edible vegetation?
He said he has another seed for you.
In these chapter of Genesis, Cain killed Abel. Cain killed his brother. Could you imagine how tragic that must’ve been for Adam and Eve to know that their son killed their other son. They had faith and with that faith God planted a new seed, Seth.
What we see here is simple. We have times where things are in a disarray. Nothing is where it should. We feel like all is crumbling. Trial and tribulation after heartache and more trial and tribulations. It’s here when our faith and trust in God is fully tested. He planted a new seed in Eve. In Eve’s case her seed was a new offspring. A new life to bear fruit. To be of glory to God.
Sometimes when we are going through rough patches it’s Not the enemy tempting us. Sometimes God allows things to happens to test our faith in him, our trust in him. Sometimes our rough patches are self inflicted. Cains jealousy towards Abel caused his own depression and was the reason his bitterness got to him. He didn’t put it in Gods hand. He took actions on in his owns hands. Had Cain repented, admitted his wrong doings instead of denying them he too could’ve received a new seed.
His lack of faith caused his banishment.
Eve though trusted, her trust allowed her despite her heart break to be able to start a new with her new seed (Seth).
When we pass through obstacles we are given opportunities by God to seek him, to trust him. It will always go one of two ways. He will provide you the seeds you need, or you will continue down that spiral until you come to him trusting in him proving your faith in him.
Dear reader, when life gives your hurdles you can’t jump over, when you go through things you do not understand, when no matter how hard you try you feel that nothing is going right, know it is not the end. Know this is only the beginning. Get down, pray, trust in him, he will give you a new seed. Not only will he provide the seed, but he will provide the space where to plant, the soil and fertilizer to nourish the ground, the hoe, hose, shears, watering can and all the spiritual gardening tools you need to plant the seed and bear fruits.
You my dear are that seed.
I am that seed.
Let’s open our hearts, mind, eyes, ears and soul.
Let’s trust in God.
Have faith in God.
Your future is dependent on that seed.
Your blessings are the fruits of your labor.
Your gifts from God are the fruits of your labor.
Your past will remain where it is at.
Do not resonate in the should have, could have, would have’ instead focus on how God can use you for his glory.
Keep praying, keep believing, keep hoping because God is for you. Trust Him, have faith in him and embrace the good things He has in store for your future!
