Separation isn't always bad

Genesis 1:9-13

And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected into one place [of standing], and let the dry land appear. And it was so.10 God called the dry land Earth, and the accumulated waters He called Seas. And God saw that this was good (fitting, admirable) and He approved it.11 And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.12 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed according to their own kinds and trees bearing fruit in which was their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (suitable, admirable) and He approved it.13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Matthew 8:27

27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.

Vegetation from Separation

On the third day God created separation between the earth and waters. He also created vegetation on that day and plants that were self sufficient and could multiply and populate the earth on their own. I think often times when a separation occurs in our life, such a friendship dwindling, space between jobs, waiting for an answer to come, it hurts. It feels like, “Ok God!, What are you doing!?” Why is this taking so long? We feel overwhelmed and like we aren’t being heard. Like God has hit the mute button or sat the phone down and walked away.

And then right as we reach that point of “Ok, I’m just hanging up”, the vegetation grows out of the situation. The herbs and fruit trees start to bloom and bud. You become stronger and the “Point of it All” was to not just make you self sufficient but to be dependent on Him. We so often try to do things all on our own. If I just would’ve done what my friend wanted me to then we wouldn’t have such a disconnect or maybe if I call them over and over I’ll get the answer I want. God doesn’t work this way and he hasn’t called us to work this way either.

Jesus said He didn’t do anything unless the Father was. God has called us to work in tandem with him. When we do the vegetation will spring up. It springs up seemingly out of no where, and where the dust was now grows a fruit tree. The fruit tree that you can feed on continuously because it is self sufficient. The self sufficiency was created in it by God. All natural vegetation depends on the sun and the water to prosper. We too need the son and water for our heavenly vegetation. The son, of course being Jesus and the water equating to The Holy Spirit. When that becomes our food we can’t help but have fruit in our life.



1. Where is God creating separation at in your life?

2. Are you praying for a heavenly mindset to work in tandem with God to grow your fruit tree?


Ask God to give you eyes to see, a heart that hears and that He shows you what is next in your heavenly book.
