Lily of the Valley

Do I not clothe the lily of the valley?

Luke 12:28
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, O you of little faith!

Do I not clothe the lily of the valley?

Don’t you get it?

Why do we still worry about our safety? Or the car payment which is due the end of the month? Why do we still worry about the end of the month?

Why on earth are we still concerned about the last bread in the bin... When we have a Father who is the ruler of Heaven and Earth? Who promised to dress us, cover, hide, defend and protect us? He, who provides our clothing, our food and bestows us with His mercy and grace? When we have the Book full of answers?

Is it that maybe that we don’t meditate on the word?

That maybe we don’t really believe His promises because we ourselves make empty promises?

Is it that we still find ourselves with a ‘beggars-mentality”?

Clothe also means; provision, supply, give, shelter, exibit....

Exibit. Exibit! Don’t you get it? Even in our wrong, in our inadequacy, God still clothes us. He Love’s us – He loves us and still provides even if we have failed Him. He loves us unconditionally.

He gave you His heart. Unconditionally. He promised to clothe you. You, the love of His life.

Just love Him back.

Don’t you get it?
