Genesis 2:19-20 says Adam was given the power to define his environment. He named every animal God showed him, not in fear of what it might do, but in complete peace and joy. He identified each one for what it was created to be in God’s presence.
You’re empowered to do the same. You can look at your life in dread, naming each circumstance for what pain and trouble it might cause, and giving authority to do those very things. Or, you can view yourself from the peace and joy of God’s presence, giving every circumstance along your path a name sourced from the grace, blessing, and revelation he’s made available to deal brilliantly with it.
The more you see and relate to your circumstances from God’s perspective, the more heaven on earth you reveal, and live in. You don’t have to look for an Eden anymore. In Jesus, you are one.
“Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life!” (Acts 5:20).
