Preparing Your Garden – Planting & Tending – Part 7

I haven’t been feeling in the writing mood the last couple days. I know the enemy is trying to take away my desire and fire. However, I still have that desire and the fire of the Holy Spirit. So let’s continue…

SEED OF TRUTH: Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ

What words does Paul use to describe our position before Christ in verse 12? We were seperate from Him. But what does Paul say that has changed all that? That we’ve been brought near by the Blood of Christ!


Quietly recite today’s focus verse (below) to yourself. Hide it in your heart and meditate on it throughout the rest of today and tomorrow.

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”

Ephesians 2:13


In 1 Peter 2:10 we are told, “Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” So often we find ourselves feeling as though we are unable to draw as near to the Lord as we would like. There seems to be a wall. As you meditate on your scripture today, focus on the truth that the Lord has brought you near, the wall has been busted down, and you are able to enter into His room at anytime. Make the most of your day today by reciting this scripture over and over and choosing to believe what it says instead of how you feel.


Brought near by the blood of Christ.


Ask the Lord to bring to life all that has been planted in your heart today.

Turning Wounds Into Wisdom,

You Him and Her
