PM#0539 Look At God's Handy Work Matthew 6 vs 28-29

Look at God’s Handy Work
Matthew 6:28-9
Psalms 19:1. 

When life seems routine and run down, maybe we should look around us and also look up.  Jesus said in Matthew 6:28.  Consider the lilies of the field, yet Solomon and all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Do you ever admire the beauty of flowers in a field?  Jesus did.

This glory of the flowers can dispel darkness that overwhelms us.  When everything seems to be overwhelmed by problems, and going in a way that there seems to be no hope, it is time to once again look at the glory of God and be reminded that God cares and wants to lift our hearts up.  He understands where we are at, and he knows how to encourage us. 

When times and situations are bleak, consider a brief prayer like this: ‘Father, help me to see you handiwork around me, and may it encourage me and lift my heart to give you praise.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
