If You Are Staring At A Wilderness Where A Garden Once Was……

 God’s Promise: For the Lord shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the lord. Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51:3 KJV

                     During Sunday service yesterday, the pastor mentioned repeatedly that ‘God is too faithful to fail’ and I was particularly blessed. Don’t we all need this reminder from time to time? It made me remember Eve’s journey through motherhood: 
                   

Eve must have felt all hope dashed when she lost her sons – She had two sons, Cain and Abel. Cain, driven by jealousy because God had accepted Abel’s offering, killed Abel his brother, and was himself banished forever. How deep her sense of loss must have been. One minute, she was the proud mother of two lovely boys; the next minute, she was mourning their loss. The circumstances surrounding the loss of her sons would definitely shatter the heart of any mother. God had blessed Eve to be fruitful and multiply but it seemed like the exact opposite was happening. Thank God the story doesn’t end there, God eventually blessed Adam and Eve with another child named Seth, and he was faithful in calling upon the Lord and serving him. Genesis 4:1 -25
                   

Today’s promise offers hope that there’s going to be a comfort, turnaround and there’s going to be restoration. Things may look gray and bleak but I want you to trust in the faithfulness of God because you can have a new beginning. He is too faithful to abandon you or to forget His promise to you. It doesn’t matter who or what you’ve lost, or how bad your situation may seem, you may be staring at a wilderness where a garden once was but I want to encourage you to hold on because God has promised to step in and turn that situation around in your favour.

  1. Such encouragement, Oris! It reminds me of the Valley of Dry Bones in Ezekiel 37. God can even breathe new life into what seems beyond reviving. He is the God of the miraculous! Nothing is impossible with Him (Luke 1:37)!
