Boundaries and Rules for Protection

boundaries

Whilst in worship during a recent time of fasting, God revealed to me that one of the practical ways I can worship Jesus, is by not doing things that will potentially lead me into sin. Creating boundaries of protection to keep me from sinfulness. I saw an image of my old high school. When I started in the school, the school boundary was laid out by some low walls around the premises, some parts not even walled. Easy for people to…

Spelling Game

Genesis 2:15-17 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”  Children in the Garden “Move out of the soil, you have the entire play ground to use.” I said and quietly…
