Genesis 4:11-12 (KJV); And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
When God created heaven and earth, He put certain laws in place, which laws fundamentally define how creation operates. The law of entanglement is one such law.
These laws were meant for the benefit of man. They were designed to work to our advantage and never against us.
However, there are things that a man will do that will affect how these laws work as regards that man.
One instance is in our theme scripture. When Cain shed his brother’s blood and committed the first murder in human history, he violated the law of entanglement. The earth to which he was connected and which was meant to bless him by reason of that connection rejected him. She would no longer yield to him her strength.
Herein is a lesson to men who are too insecure to understand that the earth was originally designed to favour us all. The all-sufficient God created enough for all men. This is why the Lord tells Cain, ‘If you do well, won’t you be accepted?'(Genesis 4:7). In other words, you can have whatever you desire as long as you apply yourself to the right principles.
Some, in indifference to the law of entanglement, have killed men, not just physically but emotionally, spiritually, socially or financially.
Always remember that God has provided enough for all of us, be it grace, favour, wisdom, understanding or material things and as such, He does not expect us to compete in the liberties that He has placed at our disposal.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God has provided enough for all of us, be it grace, favour, wisdom, understanding or material things and as such, He does not expect us to compete in the liberties that He has placed at our disposal.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this wisdom. I know who I am and to whom I belong. You have said in Your Word that I am accepted in the beloved. The world, the ground, the nations and all created things accept me and yield their best unto me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
