Secrets of The Lilies

Secrets of The Lilies…

Jesus said, “Consider the lilies.” Now that’s a command. Have you obeyed it? Jesus is teaching us a lesson. Lilies don’t have to worry about clothes, or money, or working; lilies don’t spend their days worrying, toiling or struggling.

So learn to be more like them and you’ll be blessed. But there’s more. Jesus could have used more examples of things that don’t work for a living. He could have considered the chair, or the log. But he said, “Consider the lilies.”

In order to learn the lesson, you have to consider the lilies. It’s really hard to worry or have anxiety when you’re thinking about lilies. It’s written in Philippians 4:8, “Dwell on whatever is good and pure and excellent. Let your mind dwell on that.”

Try to not think about things you need to dwell on, but what is good and pleasant and of God, as the lilies of the field. It’s Jesus’s anti-anxiety command. Consider the lilies. Have you obeyed that command lately?

If not, you’re probably bent out of shape. Set up time today, stop everything and stop disobeying God with anxiety. Fulfill the command and consider those lilies.

Consider how the wild flowers 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—you of little faith! Luke 12:27-28

Deeply meditate on Luke 12:27-28 today, take it personally, what is God saying to you, and apply it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
