- Matthew 6:26-30 -
Flowers just grow and bloom beautifully for the glory of God, and then they die. Their existence is effortless and anxiety-free. There's no struggle with anxiety (or, rather, sinful unbelief) for a flower. There's no struggle with any other sin for that matter. But, then, they can't know and appreciate the mercy of God nor any other aspect of the glorious character of God. We get to see that and appreciate it for all of eternity because of what He did for us on the cross. For some reason, He counts as having more value than flowers.
God displays something of His glory in a flower. God clothes the flowers and the grass and the birds; it isn't Mother Nature. God clothes and upholds the universe. And, I'm of more value than those other things that He clothes. Ian is of more value than those things. Will he not much more care for Ian? That question penetrates my conscience and correctly charges me with unbelief. Help me, Lord, to know for certain every moment that you are there and that you are caring for Ian.
We were with Ian today learning more about how to care for his physical needs. We will need the Lord's strength to care for these needs of Ian's when he comes home. Pray for us. Pray for his eye which continues to be a problem. Pray that he wakes up.
Pray for Ian.
