MATTHEW 6:30_Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field…
The I AM has another name, Jehovah-Jireh, which means My Provider. You may only consider provisions as food, clothes, and shelter. The Jehovah-Jireh is able to provide much more than basic essentials. He provides such things as beauty in nature.
In this verse, Jesus the Creator says God clothes the grass of the field. I love that! The world can be a very wicked, evil, dark place. Jesus says God dresses it up – even an unkept field! There are many awe-inspiring scenes in the world – all presented by the hand of nature. God could have created plain, boring nature. But God’s love sees beauty in everything, so it is only natural that His love creates beauty.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV), “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” There are sunrises, sunsets, the Blue Ridge mountains in Autumn, dogwoods and cherry trees in Spring, a field of sunflowers in Summer, and an untouched blanket of snow in Winter. These are only a micro-portion of God’s handiwork. Verse 11 says, “He hath made every thing beautiful in His time …”
Even though God’s ultimate creation, the Garden of Eden, fell to disobedience – He still gave beauty to the earth.
Jesus Creator, I see Your world of nature, and know it is full of Your love! In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ’s creation reflects His love—I can reflect it too!
