“19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, & unto dust shalt thou return”(Gen. 3: 17-19).
Praise Jesus Hallelujah! After God created Adam, he ruled as a king over the whole earth. He named all the animals with his God given, unparalleled wisdom. Everything went well & was peaceful. In addition, he regularly received Heavenly visitor- God.
All he needed had been provided ever before he was created. Then came SIN! The man who wanted to be like God was reduced to dust. While melting out judgement, God declared (Gen.3 19) above.
Nothing debases a man like SIN! Sin can relocate the one on the mountain top to the valley! The moment sin surfaced, everything on earth changed. Suddenly, man realized that he was naked. The animals also realized they were on their own. The ground hardened up as it resolved to reduce man’s harvest. The heavens seemed to move farther from man as divine visitation ceased. SIN CHANGED EVERYTHING!
There are some people who are still looking at their mother-in-law, or at one relative as the root cause of their problems, whereas they fail to see the real culprit-sin-which they’re carrying about busy chasing shadows. Face reality! Is sin in your life? If yes, you’re the one undoing yourself. It is an irony that people can go to any length searching for invisible enemies, whereas the visible enemy they’re harbouring has become ‘invisible’ to them.
Until man’s fall, there was no sweat. Progress was without sweat. Little effort delivered great results. But when sin came, great efforts delivered very little result. As long as man refuse to cut off from sin-lies, deceit, bitterness etc, man may continue to retrogress.
I pray, genuinely repent & ask God for forgiveness, resolving never to return to it. Live right with God while asking for man’s covenant benefits. Sin & righteousness are 2 things that can rewrite one’s destiny, but from opposite angles. Choose righteousness!
