Lessons from the Garden — Life in the Seed

And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.

(Genesis 1:29)

We praise You Almighty God for creating the heavens and the earth. Thank You for sending the LORD Jesus, who is Your image and the firstborn over all creation. All things were created by Him and through Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things consist. You have the whole world, and everything in it, in Your hand. No matter how small or how humongous our problems seem to appear You are above them all. You are sovereign, a living God and fully in control. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ precious and mighty name we pray. Amen.

After a slow and bumpy start I’m truly blessed watching the plants grow. And there is so much to learn about God’s world just by knowing the power He has put into the original seeds. Notice, in Genesis 1:29 God talks about herb and fruit which yield seeds. And these are the ones you want to use for your garden.

When you are ready to buy them it’s best to look for “open pollinated” (heirloom) seeds. The fruit and herb growing from these will supply you with more seeds which you can use to grow fruit and herb in the coming years. Seeds of grown F1 hybrid plants can be saved for sowing in the following year, but they will not provide you with the same result of the first year.

I will talk a little more about the growing process and how this compares to our own life in a future post.

Don’t trust in modified words.
Seek the living Word which is and has life in Himself and the power to save.
