Gen 2:8-9
Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground — trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The lord God put man in the garden of Eden and remember that all the trees in that garden was made to grow by God, and they were all pleasing to eye and good for food… these also included the three on the knowledge of good and evil, and the tree of life.
Even though this tree (tree of the knowledge of good and evil was good for food) it was not good for our food. The lord gave Adam specific instructions not to eat of this tree because of the effect it will have on him.
Just think of a little girl who her dad tells not to ride on a motorized bike, she may not understand why it is dangerous for her, but her father does because He knows more than her. All she needs to do is to trust that her father knows what is best for her and obey him.
There are so many things we don’t know, but God knows all things. You need to trust Him that He wants what’s best for you and whatever ‘good’ thing He tells you not to do is for your greater good.
Remember that at God’s right hand are pleasures forevermore. He created you and knows what is best for you. The best is what He has planned for you. The way to walk into it is to trust and obey Him.
Prayer: our dear heavenly father, I thank you for your love and grace. I thank you that you have chosen me to be your own. I pray that you give me the empowerment to trust you and obey you at all times. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen
