MATTHEW 6:29_the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin.
Now that you know how to consider, note accurately the growing process of lilies.
A field full of flowers of any kind is beautiful – that includes wildflowers. A field is an area of open land. A piece of land which is open to the sun. Free from the presence of anything which might hinder the sun’s rays. From my experience of growing lilies in my yard, they like and need sun. Sun makes them happy. When they are happy, their colors are vibrant and especially lovely. True lilies, Oriental or Asiatic, are also very fragrant.
What have you learned as a disciple by considering the growing process of lilies? You grow spiritually stronger (and wiser) when exposed to the Son – free from hindrances which block His rays. In the Son, you vibrate with His presence. In the Son, you are filled with the fragrance of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control.
This kind of life brings freedom from toiling and working to try to make yourself good. Staying in the Son allots time to God and His Word.
Any work of transformation to be done, God will do.
King of All Kings, Teach me and help me to stay in the Son. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants me to grow in Him—I want to!
