The Strength of the Ground

Genesis 4:12
“When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you.

God had given man the strength of the ground. When Cain in disobedience insisted on offering that strength to God as a sacrifice, and then sinned in defiance, God took away that strength.

Sometimes our best is an abomination to God.

Our identity is not to be wrapped up in what we do best. God does not want our best. God wants us. Our identity is solely in Him.
