Cause to Grow

He waters the mountains from the upper rooms of His palace; the earth is full of the fruit You cause to grow.

 

—Psalm 104:13

 

I purchased some flowers a few months ago and placed them in a pot at the end of my front walkway.

For the longest of time, they were at a fairly consistent height and low to the soil.

Not even remembering what type of flower I had selected, I thought they would stay at the height they were.

Recently, the flowers began a growth spurt.

Some of them look like they may have actually doubled in stature.

God knew all along how tall these plants would get.

I just didn’t.

In fact, they may even grow taller still.

Have you ever thought that things were just going to remain the way there were without changing?

Have you ever thought that certain people would never change?

Have you ever thought that it would be impossible for you to change?

God is in control.

God sees who we can become with His strength and guidance.

It doesn’t matter if we expect it or not, God is still at work.

This Is The Day

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

—Psalm 118:24

 

I watched as the juvenile heron walked on the edge of the water.

He was so small—at least when compared to what he would someday be.

You see, he’s not just any heron.

He’s a Great Blue Heron.

There will come a day when he will be large and graceful with flowing feathers off the top of his head.

That day has not come yet, but God has made it so that it will.

We have an internal map made by God, as well.

We are babies and children for a few short years, then we become adults.

When we are “born again” as a new Christian, we begin a growth process, also.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are “new” Christians.

We are young in our faith, but we are on a pathway of change as we learn to trust God more and more.

It is okay to be new.

We will be different one day.

God has made it so that we will.

 

 

rejoice and be
