"#1 Weed Killer/Prevention" - 07/05/15 2 Kings 14; 2 Chronicles 25

He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not wholeheartedly. (2 Chronicles 25:2)

I have been working in our gardens and fighting Virginia creeper . Looking about in our woods, I can see it has reached the tops of many trees.  I know this winter, when the vegetation is gone, we need to be out cutting and spraying.  Over the years, I have come to actually despise this invasive plant.  No matter how many of the little plants I pull, vines I tear out, unless it is killed from the main trunk, it will continue to send out creepers, above and underground, taking over any territory. Eventually choking the life out of the plants it wraps itself around. 

In the same way I have also been working on my heart. my mind. 
The only way our ABBA wants us - is wholeheartedly.
He wants us to be head over heels in love with Him - as He is with us.  To desire to be with Him each moment .  each second.  just as He does with us.   He wants to be the center of our world.  our thoughts.  our everything.  Just as we are to Him.
He wants to be our one and only God.
Unfortunately, just like the Virginia creeper , sin will come in and choke the life out of you and before you know it, you are serving Him without the whole of your heart. 
Our ABBA and His Word is the only "weed killer" that works - permanently. 

With all that I am, I will spend my time with my "Master Gardner" helping me to be rid of the "Virginia creepers",  so the garden of my heart will be "wholeheartedly devoted to God".
 It is the best "weed" defense you can get.
