God's Golden Garden
Acrylic on Paper
Only in God’s garden can we find peace. Living in His rest there refreshes our thirsty souls. The door to His sacred garden is open, access is through obedience and faithfulness.
In the beginning God desired for man to dwell in the Garden of Eden. He placed man there to tend and watch over His garden.
The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it (ESV)
There are different times and seasons in God’s garden. His garden dwells in our hearts, His Holy Spirit lives on the inside. Sometimes it is a time to plant, sometimes a time to water.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven(KJV)
Sometimes it is a time to cease from works and enjoy the rest.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from his (NKJV)
God has designed every person with a unique gifting to carry out His plan on earth. We all need one another to successfully fulfil His purposes for mankind. When we are faithful in following Him he causes us to flourish and grow. Sometimes He prunes us when we need to let go of things that are holding us back. Holy Spirit will encourage your soul to find rest. He prepares people to receive His word, offering His living water to restore your soul. He sows the word in our hearts. He cultivates His people to prepare them for a fruitful harvest.
The gateway to this golden garden points to perfect rest. Walking through the garden and smelling the fragrant aroma, this is the perfect pathway to wholeness. A place of sunshine, the light of Christ shining brightly within, that’s the way to fruitfulness, the heart stepping into the eternal, laying our burdens at Jesus’ feet and living a glorious life, that's paradise.
