Genesis 2:5b-6 says:
“For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground, but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.”
When there was no one to till and water the soil, God provided a mist to take care of it. When He doesn’t place it in someone’s responsibility, He’ll take care of it! However, we are responsible for what He does place before us. Now, I’m NOT saying that “If you take care of what He placed before you then He’ll take care of you.” What I am saying is that He takes care of us (period). He even takes care of us when He does put something in our care.
I heard a parent say recently, “well, I was inexperienced when I had the first kid and she came out alright, so the second kid will be the same way.” I was so conflicted because he was right to a certain extent…the kid was alright. When he first started this journey, he didn’t know much and God took care of it… BUT NOW, God has placed some “experience” under his care to go along with the second child. So…we need to take care of what God has blessed us with.
He needs to approach the second child with more wisdom because even if God will grace the second child to turn out alright, he should honor God this time around with what God gave him through the first experience. That’s why Jesus said, “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him, they will ask the more.” (Luke 12:48)
So… When there’s no one to take care of it, God will. When there IS someone God has commissioned to take of it, God will take care of them WHILE they take care of their God-given assignment.
