Eden was God’s original intention for Man.
The word means delightful, fruitful and well-watered; that was the environment that God desired for us. So much of the world around us is corrupted and distorted that sometimes it can be hard to see clearly. I am reminded of the book of Genesis where darkness covered the face of the earth and it was void and without form and darkness dominated. But then God spoke four words that set off a chain of events that eventually lead to the utilisation and beautification of the earth, culminating in Eden: “Let there be light”. Psalm 119:105 reads, “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”. I am therefore persuaded that as we seek God’s word in every area of our lives, they will look more and more like he originally intended and we will flourish.
So this is now my prayer: that in every area of my life, from my career to my ministry, from marriage to finances, from relationships to health
– I would see Eden.
