The Supplier

In the beginning of time the Word of God says that God created vegetation, seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it. (Genesis 1:11)

Today is a new day. It has never existed before.

It’s interesting that the Lord created all these plants with seeds; more fruit to come via the seed, yet the Bible says that the Sun was not yet in place. The nourishment that would be needed supplied by the sun that would allow the plants and trees to bloom and thrive was not yet created. “God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars”. (Genesis 1:16)

God was this an afterthought? Did God make an “oops” and then realize that he quickly needed to make the Sun?

I think I would have done this the other way around. Good thing I am not God.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9)

We often read the Bible and see this great revelation of God unfold. This is an awesome experience to see God move through time; is as if he already knows the need and meets it.

What we forget is that God has always existed and that it was for his pleasure that he created us; a great love he has demonstrated throughout the ages and continues to do so today.

God is Sovereign, He knows all and nothing he does is a mistake.

God indeed has started something great in us and he will supply all that is needed to complete it. (Philippians 1:6)

We often look at our lives and see all that lacks. I don’t have enough money, my skill set is deficient; my energy is depleted; we say things like “there is no way I can do that” or “that could never be me”.

We are not a mistake; we are created in the image of Almighty God and we have been designed with purpose! (Genesis 1:26) Even more so, God sent his Son to the creature he made in his likeness, who choose to disobey, to ensure and reestablish a right relationship with himself.

The God who created everything is more than able to meet us at our need; like a plant without a sun.

The full plan is within HIM. We just see glimpses but it’s coming.

“In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly”. (Psalm 5:3)

He is able. Fear not. Be still and wait.

JUST WONDERING: The vegetation never wondered where there nourishment would come from. I don’t read about plants uprooting themselves from where God planted them and searching the earth on their own for their supply. They waited and God provided. These are plants, how much more us who are made in his image, to reflect his glory. We are his pride possession.
