God is Mindful of mankind...

Many times when we are disturbed by the circumstances, negative words of people, and prejudices inside us, we tend to feel that God doesn't care...
We may start nagging and cribbing about our condition. We may even feel a little anger towards God...


Our emotions could get deceptive. Moreover, the written Truth is more powerful than, our own feelings & emotions.


Consider the third chapter of Genesis:
When Adam & Eve ate the shiny fruit from the" tree of knowledge of good & evil", they realized that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves...
The deception of the serpent, and the dis-obedience of the mankind made God angry, and He banished Adam & Eve from the fruitful Garden of Eden...

Interesting thing to observe was: God didn't banish them just as they were! God made garments of skin for them.
God banished them from a Garden- which was fruitful, resourceful, peaceful and conducive to live for human kind- to a place which would be more tough for them to live. Where they would have to endure hardships, wilderness and climatic changes...
Do you think, what 'Man' had discovered- fig leaves- would have been enough to protect them?
God was mindful of 'Man', even when He punished them! He not only clothed them; also, man would have learned to make garments of skin, by watching God...

This is a thought which occurred in my mind. There could be many more perspectives on this.

However, the Truth remains- God is mindful of mankind- every day, every moment, through ages and centuries, & for the days to come. That is why He had sent His only begotten Son for us- to purchase us back from the authority of darkness & deception- & keep us in His Holy Presence. He has given us, all He has- angels, His Son, His Spirit, His Wisdom, & His Presence.
Every morning when the sun rises, shines bright, and fresh breeze flows freely, know in your heart that- God is mindful and thoughtful of us! Praise Lord! :)

I wrote this blog around 2:30 am, and interestingly, Pastor spoke about the same in the Church that morning... The fig leaves signify "works of man" to hide his own sins... However, the garment of skin(animal skin) signifies, "Blood being shed" to cover his sins (nakedness). It signifies that the true protection comes through the Blood! Blood of lamb! Blood of Jesus!
