Sunday Devotions - "And if God cares..."
from the book Bible Devotions for Bedtime by Daniel Partner
"And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you?" Matthew 6:30
Think about the rain. It comes down on everything - on roses, poppies, lilies, dandelions, moss, weeds, everything! Why? Because God cares about all these things.
But there are so many things to care about in the universe. Why would God be concerned with flowers? The answer is found in Genesis. It says that when God made the light, "It was good." Then God made the dry land and the seas. "And God saw that it was good." He grew all kinds of plants on the earth. "And God saw that it was good." Next, God made the sun, moon, and stars. What did God think of this? "And God saw that it was good." Then God made fish and birds. "And God saw that it was good." Then all kinds of animals were made. And God saw that is was good."
Six times in Genesis, God saw that it was good. This means that God enjoyed His Creation. It is delightful to Him. This is why the rain falls on all things. God cares for it all. Since God sends rain on each and every flower, you know that He cares for you, too!
Dear God, Thank You for caring about me!! Amen.
