“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”
Taking in these words this morning, and some of the things in a bible study lesson, I am reminded of the two things: The Garden of Eden, and Heaven.
The image I have of both is that they were created for one thing: places where you and I can fully glorify God. They are not places like here and now where I am distracted by stuff and weighed down by my own sin. They are places where “every blade of grass is intended to make me rejoice”. Sorry, but that doesn’t happen for me here. Here, every blade of grass is waiting to be mowed. Sorry, but I just don’t see God everywhere. And that is not true fellowship with God as He intended.
So the challenge before me today is to see God in perhaps a place I have not seen Him before.
“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.” – Genesis 3:8
I could be totally wrong, but this is a different picture than the one of Moses hiding in the cliff, unable to look at God in His fullness.
For now, let me see the blade of grass for its intended purpose: to make me rejoice in Him.
