What happened in Eden doesn’t have to repeat.
I am with you
The first Adam is dead
The second Adam is here
Always mediating on your behalf
I know the fear than you think
It’s scary when your Eden is right there, before you even do a thing
You are only asked to enjoy and multiply
Reap where you didn’t sow
And then God asks you to enter into his rest
How tempting to think fear is only of evil
But then severally, “fear not” is said in the presence of an angel
Good comes to the good…we’ve been told severally
But then he makes us righteous with no single effort on our part
He walks through the halves for our sake
Makes the everlasting covenant of blessing for and with us
Just what I and you need
When grace appears to us and the angel of mercy shows
About the many blessings he makes available
How his works makes us complete and gives us eternal joy
So says the Lord
For I am with you

It’s amazing when a woman wrote this, so that what happened in Eden doesn’t have to repeat. Keep it up Wonuola!
the feeling of unworthiness, the feeling of guilt, the inspite-of-all-I’ve-done feeling… could grace be a trap? perhaps I’m undeserving of the perfect rest He offers.
But Christ answers reassuringly again, “fear not, enter into Eden. It’s prepared for you, in spite of you”
This is deep. Good one, Ope.
Fear not, even when what he has promised is yet to manifest, fear not, it will surely come to pass… I need not fear, I need only obey. Nice one dear
