There is a huge difference in the “tree of life” and the “tree of knowledge”. The first signifies eternal reality while the latter speaks of human opinions, justifications, condemnation and comparisons. We are given strict orders to stay away from that tree in Genesis 2:16 where it states “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
Isn’t that telling us to stay with the thought that God is Good and the only creator? He is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Good! When we pray with that knowing, there is no room for error. The more Good we focus on, the more there is visible to us.
Today, I will watch my focus!
Recently, I paid a visit to my first art teacher and had him critique some of my work. While he was complementary with some, he pointed out that I had failed to execute some things on other pieces where I had known what to do! A light came on for me and since then, I had recognized places where I had not executed what I know to be true.
First and foremost, I know God to be the omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient Good and the only power there is! During this election, I had experienced some hand-wringing when in my soul, I know better.
“Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalm 105:4
As God is Good and omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, there can be no lack of Good. “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.” stated in Psalm 18:30.
The above brings me such a secure feeling!
Beliefs I have claimed throughout the years have changed and sometimes, often and do not result in feelings of security. On the other hand, my understanding comes gently and in increments of Knowing that God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient Good. Security results as I recognize man as image and likeness of God, which is in Genesis 1:26, where it states, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping that creepeth upon the earth.” That is the real creation.
