Creation Declares His Glory

26 Jun

So the other day I was sitting on my front porch and I noticed something…

this might look like nothing at first sight… but look close at all the plants.

Do you notice they are all leaning the same direction?  After sitting there for a while, I noticed that all the plants in our front yard were all facing the same direction – towards the sun.  Most of our yard is in the shade.

It amazes me that living structures, with no brain, have the instinctive nature to move towards that which gives them life.  How do they know?

As a scientist, I know someone could give me the details about the cycles of photosynthesis and how leaning towards the light optimizes a plant’s chances for thriving. 

But still…. how do they know to do it?  I don’t know exactly how,  but I know exactly who makes this happen.

This reminds me of a simple truth:

“Why do you worry…?  See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?   So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matt 6

If God can take care of these flowers, how much more can He care for me?
