Eden Returns – Daddy Makes It Right


“But me, I’m not giving up, I’m sticking around to see what God will do, I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.” Micah 7:7  The Message

I was reading “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young to my 7-year-old yesterday morning.  It had Micah 7:7 as the verse and it resonated with me.  I told myself I would look at that verse again when my child went to school.  The rest of Sarah’s lesson said something like this: No matter what YOU do, mistakes and ALL, God will work it for GOOD.

I needed that.  I needed to know that despite what I do, God still loves me, and He will take my mistakes and work them for my good and His glory.

Well, later that morning I picked up The Message bible that I had left on my coffee table.  It was out because the day before I wanted to read something to my child and I thought The Message would be easier for him to understand.  I am telling you this because I hardly ever pick up The Message.  So why did I reach for it instead of my trusted NASB that was sitting right beside it? – can someone say DADDY?

“But me, I’m not giving up, I’m sticking around to see what God will do, I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.” Micah 7:7  The Message

I love it.  I really do.  Yesterday we looked at “not giving up” even when life seems overwhelming because there is One yoked to us that is there to take that load – if we would only let Him.

Now I want to look at another part of the Micah 7:7 verse.  “I’m waiting for God to make things right.”

We know God listens to us, but do we believe He will really make things right?  Really?  Even in our day-to-day mix ups?  Despite what we do?  Do we really believe God can right all that?

What about the things more serious?  The death of a spouse?  The death of a child?  A miscarriage? Family problems.  Friend drama.  Betrayal.

But He is yoked right there beside us remember?  He is right there, feeling everything with us.  And He is our Daddy.  Doesn’t your father or someone in your life want to make things right for you?  And how much more our Daddy?  He made this world for Eden.  He made it for us to enjoy, not for us to cry and moan and wail.

We did a good job of that ourselves.

But Daddy’s plans have never changed.

He wants us to have Eden again.  And it is coming – oh faithful friends, it is coming!

Do we believe it?

“Indeed, the Lord will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places and her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord.  Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of a melody.”  Isaiah 51:3

This scripture is talking about the Millennial Reign of Christ.  And what will it be like?

Eden.

The wrongs that have happened in your life will be made right, my faithful friends.  They will be made right.  If not in this life – in the next.  In Eden.  Where we will live again.

My husband is gone, but God can make it right.  He can and He will – in Eden.  In the garden of the Lord.  In the Millennial Kingdom of Christ.

“But me, I’m not giving up, I’m sticking around to see what God will do, I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.” Micah 7:7

I’m not giving up.  I’m waiting to see what God will do.  I’m waiting on the return of the King.  Because I know when He comes, there will be JOY and all the wrong in my life will be RIGHTED.  My Daddy loves me that much.  My Daddy loves you that much.

And I am just GIDDY.  Aren’t you?

Eden.

Amen and Amen, Come Quickly Lord Jesus!
