I am forever in awe of how God chooses to show His love and care through so many of the details of Creation.
Like, the fact that He made flowers not only pretty to look at but also lovely to smell.
I wonder why He made trees that flower.
He didn't have to do that. But He did. And with such precision. Such perfectly awe-inspiring beauty.
And I am reminded that He is a God of abundance.
That's how He fed more than 5,000 people with two fish and fives loaves of bread and then had 12 baskets full of leftovers (Mark 6). It's why in Mark chapter 2 He didn't just heal the paralyzed man's legs, but He healed his heart as well, forgiving his sins. It's why in Ephesians 1 Paul writes about "...the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us..."(vv.7-8,NIV)
Because He is a God of abundance. He is The God of Abundance.
It's Who He is. It's how He rolls.
He didn't spray His grace on us. No. He lavished it!
Because He is awesome beyond understanding.
If His creation is this amazing, what must He Himself look like?
I can't know until I reach my Forever Home.
So until then I'll just settle for spring.
"To him be the glory forever! Amen."
Romans 11:36 NIV
