“Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east,
and there he placed the man he had created.”
When God created man, He did not leave him alone to fend for himself. God knew Adam would need nourishment to stay alive, so He had already developed a plan—plant a beautiful garden.
To fulfill this plan, God did not simply speak, “Let there be…” nor did He send His angels to do the task. Notice God Himself planted the garden! “And the LORD GOD planted all sorts of trees in the garden—beautiful trees that produced delicious fruit.” (v 9) And besides that, God even made sure there was a river to water His garden.
Now I am wondering…if this Creator God planned such care for the first man He created, wouldn’t He have the same concern for those He created later? Surely, the Creator has a plan for their lives too!
God the Son told us not to worry—even the birds of the air don’t need to plant or harvest, because their Father feeds them. I have a Father too—the One who created me loved me so much He also redeemed me when I was lost.
So, no matter what my needs are today, I can be sure that every one of them will be met. After all…
My Creator has already planted a garden, just for me!
