“Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy with them who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations,….” Deuteronomy 7:9 MEV
Our LORD is more faithful than our seasons! I have been watching my iris beds as I saw the flags of these minature iris’ pop up a few days ago. This morning – the flowers have very faithfully arrived! The white ones have not yet been seen, but these beauties adorn my front lawn iris bed this morning. They will only last for a few days, so I will enjoy them – rain and all. I wanted to share them with you.
In my prayer time this morning, our Lord was instructing me (once again – He does it so often and in such patience) that He is faithful. Of course He is! But how easy it is to think about what our circumstances are proclaiming. If we are not cautious we will believe that what these situations say is truth. It is always only a passing season – simply because in a moment of time everything changes. So whatever truth it contains, it is brief. On the other hand, our beautiful Lord Jesus is always the same and always faithful to us as individuals and faithful to His word to us and in us.
So as we begin to see the first signs of our season changing, let’s embrace the momentary beauty and allow His faithfulness to be the center of our thoughts and actions. What a marvelous Lord we have. And just think, next spring, once again up these tiny beauties will come – if the earth remains.
