It Was in a Garden


We have often spoken about having a Garden of Gethsemane experience (surrendering your will to the Lord), and how it was in another garden (the Garden of Eden) that man said, "Not Your will, but mine be done.(Luke 22:42) Just as there was a subtle serpent in that garden, so there is a subtle serpent ever present in your Garden of Gethsemane. The father of lies has a weapon that will make you continually sweat drops of blood: It is the weapon of fear. So, don"t listen to his whispers. Every time you go to open your mouth for the Kingdom of God, you can be sure He will be there to say, "You can't do this." But when fear knocks on the door, send the Word of God to open it. Say, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.(Philipians 4:13) The Lord is my helper; I will not fear."(Hebrews 13:6) There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
