FROM SWEAT TO SWEETNESS
In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve made a decision that destroyed all the sweetness of life that God planned for us. Their choice to succumb to temptation and eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in disobedience to God, introduced pain, sorrow, toil, curses, and death into the perfect world that God created for man’s complete enjoyment. (Genesis 3:16-19) Sin brought confusion, poverty, and lack. God said to Adam in Genesis 3:19, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground.” Sweat is evidence of hard labor and struggle in life. The “a” in sweat represents the powers that come to alter the sweetness of God’s plan for our lives. The “a” represents attack, agony, accusation, abuse, and affliction. But Jesus came to restore to us all that was lost in the Garden of Eden. He came to change our sweat to sweetness! Luke 22:44 says, “And being in agony, Jesus prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” Agony is a state of intense feeling of suffering. It is acute pain--spiritually, mentally, and physically. Jesus’ sweat was as great drops of blood for us because of the result of sin. He carried our pain, sickness, disease, and confusion. Because of that blood, every “a” has been destroyed. Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” Jesus nullified and reversed every curse which the sin of disobedience brought into the world. As a result of Calvary, we can now move from sweat to sweetness. Revelation 7:16-17 says, “They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” He has taken away the unrighteous “a” of sweat to give us the righteous “e” of sweet! That “e” represents excellence, enlargement, empowerment, expansion, employment, and enlistment for prosperity and fruitfulness. No one will be able to quench your laughter this year! Psalm 119:103 says, “How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” God shall turn your sweat to honey this year. Every good thing will be yours. When the Word of God is made real in you, your life will be characterized by abundance, satisfaction, and enjoyment. No matter what you are going through, there will be joy. Your life will be so empowered that you will not need anything. When you let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in the sight of the Lord according to Psalm 19:14, your life will be dripping with milk and honey. Your sweetness will attract people. Your life will be bright and free of bitterness. The curse of a life of sweat was broken on the tree of Calvary. The second Adam has taken over, and we are possessing the land of sweetness! Receive victory in Jesus’ name!
