MASTER GARDENER-CONTINUING MY STUDY OF 'A WOMAN AND HER GOD'
The Master Gardener
First, he selects the land.
Before a gardener beings to plant he must select a location. God selected you and me. He calls us to be one of His own.
Second, a gardener prepares the soil.
Rocks and weeds must be removed. God pulls the weeds from our hearts. Preparation is critically important so the seed that is sown will have a chance to grow
Next comes the planting.
He plants His Word in our life, just as a gardener plants seeds. He relates to us through His Word and prayers.
The Fourth thing God does is waters and waits.
You have to have adequate water as well as fertilizer. Then you must be patiently. Gods timing is much different than ours, but we have to remind ourselves, it is perfect.
Finally when all is completed a bountiful harvest can be enjoyed.
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all you anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
Women deserve to be treated with kindness and respect, but all the relationships in the world cannot fulfill all the desires we may have to be treated with compassion and tenderness. We should look to God first as an answer to our longing. He cares for us and we can have a tender relationship with Him that surpasses all others.
Next we take a look at the Spirit of Unity
