God Sings Over You

by Donna L. Watkins

Jesus told us in the Sermon on the Mount that we are not to worry about food and clothing ... that God would provide for us as He provides for the rest of Creation.

Consider this from Creation Moments:

The tropical looking flower Virginia Meadow Beauty offers some rare tricks for those who would pollinate it. A honeybee can poke around the flower all day and never get any pollen from the gaudy pink flowers. In fact, researchers report that honeybees don't seem to know what to do with the flowers. Rather, the Virginia Meadow Beauty is pollinated by bumblebees, not honeybees.

The pollen of a newly opened pink flower is good only for that day. But the flowers stay open for several days. It signals the bumblebees that the pollen in old flowers are not good by changing colors. Yet, the spent flowers are serving one more purpose. Researchers report that large displays, even if mostly spent flowers, attract more bumblebees than small displays of all fresh flowers.

How is it that the bumblebee can get the pollen and the honeybees can't? They just buzz. And when a bumblebee buzzes, the flower ejects its pollen at 30 times the force of gravity – a force greater than any astronaut must endure!

It's not that the bumblebee gets the pollen because it is larger than a honeybee; no, even bumblebees no larger than the honeybee's head can get the pollen. It's the frequency of buzzing.

The Lord has abundantly provided for the flowers and the bees. How much more will He provide for us? I am memorizing two verses right now that relate to how much we mean to God. Maybe you would like to join me.

Scripture memory affirms who we are and can change our belief system around, which will change our relationships and health and outlook on life. It's all about belief in who we are.

Ponder this:

"My Father takes great delight in me and quiets me with His love and rejoices over me with singing." Zephaniah 3:17

"How precious are your thoughts of me, O God! How great is the sum of them." Psalm 139:17

Meditate on those for awhile and you'll feel all gooey inside and outside you'll be smiling and shining. God loves you so much, he sings over us. Find a quiet spot and listen to His songs.
