God Will Meet All of Your Needs

Every year in the spring, we take the kids to our old apartment where daffodils grow wild in the woods nearby and no one seems to care. 9 years ago, a neighbor discovered them and she told me to "get my bucket and get picking." It was such a joy to make a spring bouquet - for free! So every year we drive the kids over to our old apartment and we make spring bouquets from these wild daffodils!

There are no paths to these daffodils and it appears that no one ever sees them. I am sure that we are the only ones who venture in to find these treasures and when we get past the mess of leaves and twigs there we find these daffodils standing tall and proud, in all their splendor ready to greet us!

Luke 12:27 and 28 says "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!"

Jesus says - "Consider the lilies". This means - take some time to really look at them - pause - think about their splendor and how God has provided sunshine and rain so that they can bloom. And then think about your needs - and how much more Jesus cares about you than those lilies! Certainly he will take care of you - and if you don't believe - your faith is little!!!

Phil. 4:19 says, "My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." In the margin of my Bible by this verse I have written: "If he didn't meet it, I didn't need it."

In America it is rare to find someone who is worried about how they will clothe themselves. But I know that the recent recession in America has struck fear into the hearts of many and I want to encourage you to exchange your fear with faith. If you are struggling to walk in faith in the area of finances - let the daffodils and other spring flowers remind you - God cares for you much more than these - and he will meet all of your needs in Christ Jesus.

These daffodils sit on my window sill today as a reminder of God's faithfulness to me.

Walk with the King!

We often see these tucked in the woods as we drive around in the spring. Some we pass are from old homesites, and I always wonder who used to watch them bloom. They are STILL blooming, even, as you said, no one may watch. Creation just has to "bloom" in praise, doesn't it?

That is one of my favorite passages - we talk about it often when the sparrows come to feast at our bird feeder. :)

"My God shall provide all my needs according to His riches in glory!"
