When God created us, He put us in a garden — a place of perfect relationships and protection — a place protected by His Word for us to flourish and grow. But man disregarded God’s Word and disobeyed, and as a result we have lost the garden of God’s favor and protection. But where man’s story begins with a great fall, God’s story enters to rescue and redeem us and bring us back to the garden that He wants for us. There is no need to fear when we find our place in Him, for God has opened a new way into the garden we lost. Enjoy this message from our heart to yours.
