Purposefully Planned

From the tiniest flower on a mountaintop to the smallest anemone buried by ocean waves, treasures only recently discovered by man have been visible to God from the beginning of creation.

Purposefully planned and delicately designed, each one exists and performs in its one minuscule part of the ecosystem, and God says, “It is good”.

We can see God’s joy and pleasure in creation in a walk around the block or in a canyon trek.  If you wonder about God’s joy, look at the giraffe or a blooming dahlia. If you wonder about His majesty, look at the mountain landscapes. If you wonder about His tenderness, check out the bunnies and the puppies and the babies. He shares His artwork in sunsets and sunrises, and He showcases His work on each part of the globe. All of this He willingly provides to mankind.

Each gem in nature reminds us of His majesty and points us to His love if we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear.

Maine Flowers

Just as there is no forgotten flower, we can rest assured that He has purposely planned and placed each of us as well. We may feel that we are growing in dry, rocky soil, but His strength is sufficient to cause us to blossom in the most difficult of circumstances.

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Matthew 6

Psalm 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.
