The Lilies Don’t Worry

The Lilies Don’t Worry
What can we learn from lilies? There are many lessons Jesus is trying to teach us about the way lilies grow. Lilies do not worry.
The lilies are totally dependent on the gardener (God) for all their provisions of food, clothing and nourishment. The lilies get their sustenance from the care of the gardener. Eventually the lilies wither and die, yet they do not worry. They do not toil nor spin (worry).
28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.
29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these.
30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? Matthew 6:28-30
Worry comes from a Greek word which means a “divided mind.” A divided mind is one focused on the cares and worries of food, clothing, and this world, rather than a mind focused on the ONE who loves, cares, feeds, clothes and sustains us. The Gardener, Father God, is the provider and giver of life. HE is the sustainer of Life. Everything created comes from God’s love for all mankind.
Solomon had all the wealth of the world and all the fame of the world, yet the lilies were more impressive and arrayed beyond anything that the world of man could give. The Glory, splendor and radiance of God’s love is beyond anything man can imagine. The wealth of this world is nothing compared to the billions of galaxies created by God.
As redeemed Children of God, you are HIS Crown Jewel. Your Heavenly Father loves you. HE sees you with all the splendor and radiance of HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. You are an exact replica of HIS SON made in the exact Image and likeness of Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God living in your temple is Love, Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit.
God loves you above all that HE has created, even the lilies. There is no worry or fear with the Holy Spirit living in the believer. The perfect love of God has cast out all worry and fear for the believer in Christ Jesus. All worry and fear is gone when you abide in Christ.
