Yesterday the Lord sent a paga that literally fell right before my eyes. Sunday morning I had picked two stems from my borage, and put them in a vase on my table. Each had a flower. Yesterday morning the two flowers were still perky. When I sat down to eat my lunch I noticed one had begun to shrivel. It was hanging and sort of shaking. I watched and it fell onto the table. By the time I finished eating it had begun to shrivel and a seed popped out. As you can see in the picture, the ‘star’ holds the seeds.
Borage is a self seeder. I brought the flowers in so I could see how they drop their seed. I watched God’s incredible creation go through its cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth. What is the spiritual lesson in this paga? John 1:14 says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the flory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Translate all of this above into this thought: we become the embodiment of God’s word when we hide it in our heart. His word is a self seeder. When His seed-word falls into good ground, Mark 4:20 says that it will, “…bear fruit: some thirty-fold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” Maybe you understood this before, but it is a new revelation for me through His paga.
The Lord is always speaking to us. Do we live in that awareness? He always speaks through His word when we have ears to hear. He often uses people, places, things, or circumstances. It is all through His creative orchestrations. Watch today to see what He is doing. Open your ears to hear His words. Look, and may He open your eyes to see beyond the visual, obvious, and the obstacles in your path. He is actively intervening moment by moment.
Tomorrow I will take this paga in another direction.
