The Garden of God
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the
flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof
falleth away: but the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
1 Peter 1:24, 25.
If our minds are open to the impressions of the Spirit of God,
we may learn lessons from the simple and beautiful things
of nature. I feel oppressed in the crowded cities where there
is naught for the eyes to look upon but houses. The flowers
are to us constant teachers. The shrubs and flowers gather
to themselves the properties of earth and air which they
appropriate to perfect the beautiful buds and blossoming
flowers for our happiness, but they are God’s preachers,
and we are to consider the lessons which they teach us.
Just so has God given us the precious promises throughout
His Word. The Scriptures are open to us as the garden of
God, and their promises are as fragrant flowers blooming all
over that garden. God especially calls our attention to the
very ones that are appropriate for us. In these promises we
may discern the character of God and read His love to us.
They are the ground upon which our faith rests, the support
and strength of our faith and hope, and through these we
are to delight our souls in God and breathe in the fragrance
of heaven. Through the precious promises He withdraws the
veil from the future and gives us glimpses of the things
which He has prepared for those who love Him....
We should not regard them with carelessness or
indifference. But as we would examine the precious flowers,
delighting our senses with their loveliness and fragrance,
just so we should take the promises of God, one by one,
and examine them closely on every side—take in their
richness, and be soothed, comforted, encouraged, and
strengthened by them. God has provided for all the comforts
the soul needs. They are suited to the friendless, the
poverty stricken, the wealthy, the sick, the bereaved—all
may have their appropriate help if they will see and take
hold upon these by faith. God scatters blessings all along
our path to brighten the rugged way of life, and we want to
be receiving all the comfort and tokens of God’s love with
grateful hearts.
