In this climate of youth violence and self harm, where our youth are losing their lives in record numbers, as I speak to disappointed parents, I share with them the great disappointment Eve, the first mother in scripture, went through. After her son Cain killed his brother Abel, the first murder in the Bible, I’m sure Eve, like any mother, was devastated and heartbroken at the passing of her son. But I love what Eve said in today’s verse, “God has appointed another seed for me.” In essence, she was saying, “I don’t understand it. It doesn’t make sense, but I trust God. This is not the end. He has appointed another blessing and a brighter future for me.”
Today, if you’re going through things that you don’t understand, it is not the end. Nothing is lost in the kingdom. Like Eve, in Genesis 4:25 when her son died, God is going to appoint another seed, and that seed represents the future. It indicates what is coming. If you will let go of what didn’t work out, let go of the hurt and pain, then for everything you’ve lost, God will appoint another seed. You’ll give birth to more in the future than you lost in the past. So keep praying, keep believing, keep hoping, because God is for you. Trust Him and embrace the good things He has in store for your future!
“…For God has appointed another seed for me…”(Genesis 4:25, NKJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, You are the giver of all life! Father, You give life to my dreams, life to my relationships, and life to my body. God, like Eve, I believe that my future is brighter than my past. I will release the past and embrace the gift of life You have in store for my future, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
