675th -- Orchids And Daffodils


It is important to remember that God has created each of us as individuals
with different gifts and talents which makes us unique. It is for this 
reason that we should love ourselves and use what God has given us for our
betterment and not look at what others have in envy or jealousy. We who 
have trouble in this area of life must see our self-worth and know that God
loves us just the way we are and has equipped us stand in confidence and to
reach forth towards victory. (Galatians 4:4-7) (Ephesians 1:4) (Jeremiah 31:3)

Be encouraged to love the person God made you to be. Never become envious
or bitter when looking at what others possess, but rather stay faithful to
the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. The Bible says it
is God's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Use what God has given you
and love yourself enough to see that you are worthy of good things and that
you are exactly what God had in mind when you were created. (Luke 12:32)

I hope this message encourages and inspires your heart to see that you are
special and unique and made in the perfect image that God had in mind 
before the foundations of the world.


The flower of the Orchid sits in the field alone. Perfect in its tiny dress
of white and purple, yet unnoticed by many amongst the grass and other wild
flowers. Yet she is precious and rare -- a perfect embodiment of the light
of her Creator.

She is no more perfect, though, than the wild golden Daffodil, shouting its
loud yellow trumpet over the landscape. But she is in solitude and rarity;
a beauty that is enhanced by that very solitude that makes the observer who
hunts her out looks at each detail with care and awe.

Few look that closely at the Daffodil, though they are seen for miles, 
painting the scene with its stunning array. Neither is best, neither worse,
and each form their own challenges.

The challenge of the Orchid lies in its greatest gift. Its scarcity brings
a loneliness -- a feeling of always being different, yet the wonder of its
detail brings out a desire in others to look more closely at their own 
beauty. An Orchid would lose its truth in a field of Orchids.

The challenge of the Daffodil is to feel the self-worth, since it is easy
to feel lost amongst the masses. Yet it delights to the eye and brings such
ready joy to those watching. Each Daffodil amongst the Daffodils needed to
create the splash of color that makes the watcher's spirit soar.

You, the one who is reading this, may be an orchid, or you may be a 
daffodil. Whichever, understand this as such, and move not to change your
nature, since a human can no more change their base substance from one to
another than an orchid can decide to become a daffodil.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Ezekiel 36:26-27 “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will
I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My spirit within 
you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments,
and do them.”

Isaiah 26:3-4 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on
Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in
the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.”

Psalm 37:3-5 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the 
land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and
He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the 
LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.”

Psalm 28:6-8 “Blessed be the LORD, because He hath heard the voice of my 
supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my 
song will I praise Him. The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving 
strength of His anointed.”

Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath 
begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
