"Consider The Lilies"

"And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin." Matthew 6:28
I woke up with another song on my heart this morning. I know it is a word specifically for someone this morning. Believe it and receive it. 
We have a heavenly father above with eyes full of mercy and a heart full of love. He really cares when your head is bowed low.  Consider the lilies and then you will know.
We have a heavenly Father who sits high, but looks low and sees where we are. He loves us with an everlasting- not fleeting- love. He loves us unconditionally, not with limitations and conditions. His love is so great that the depth and breathe and length and height of it can't be measured. 
He loves you this morning. Just because you are going through trials and difficulties does not mean He doesn't love you, knows where you are or care about you. Go outside and look at the flowers. He created them. Do they work? Do they struggle for what they have? Are they beautiful or ugly? Who created them? This wonderful heavenly Father. He created them, He dressed them, He watches over them, He takes care of them, and He knows when one dies. 
Go out side and watch the birds. Listen to them chirp. Watch them gracefully fly through the air. Watch them build their nests. They don't work for their meal-- they simple pick up what the heavenly Father has provided for them. They don't struggle to make ends meet. Look at how beautiful they are. Who created them? This wonderful heavenly Father. He created them, He gives them wings, He teaches them how to fly, He watches over them, He takes care of them, and He knows when one of them falls to the earth and dies.
Who created you? This wonderful heavenly Father. He created you, He dresses you, He watches over you, He provides for you, He takes care of you, He knows when you are in trouble and He knows when you die. He knows your beginning, He knows your end and He knows everything in between. 
You are of much more value to the heavenly Father than the flowers of the field. And if He takes such good care of a flower that only blooms once- it is here today and gone tomorrow- can't He and won't He take care of you also?
Have a great day. If you ever have any doubt that God cares about you, consider the lilies and you will know that He does.
