Garden of Praise

Isaiah 61:11  For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations

God is laying the groundwork for a world-size garden of praise.  He is planting seeds of holiness and righteousness in human hearts.  He nurtures our desires… to love and worship Him… to take root, sprout up and blossom. He is the great Gardener of our souls.  Observe the emergence of colorful springtime in the stark winter branches, and realize God is sprouting up new, flowering life in our souls for His glory.  We are fragrant offerings in God’s beautiful garden of praise.

Caretakers of Earthly Gardens and Seas

We know the Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it! He has made us caretakers over the land and seas! Genesis 1:22 “And God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.’”

And Genesis 2:15 “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”

The Lord wants us to abundantly multiply His goodness on Earth, just as multitudes of blossom spring forth from winter branches in this Spring season! Let us be mindful and protecting of God’s beautiful creation and take care of all He has entrusted to us!
