The jonquils are blooming here and there in our area. The up and down temperatures are causing a stir in nature. It’s amazing to me that these lovely flowers will bloom even in the snow and not die.

Oh beloved, bloom! Bloom where you are planted. Bloom out of season. Bloom when all in the natural wants to stunt your life. It’s not about having things right and perfect that you are able to bloom. It’s because your roots are grounded in Christ. This is not the season to cut off the blooms and discard your beauty. It’s time to rise and shine and give God the glory!

God knows your every situation. He also knows that within you is the potential to receive beauty for ashes. It’s not that you aren’t delicate in the flesh. Just as the jonquil petals are so very fragile, so is your life in nature. But in the Spirit, you are invincible,
uncontainable and you cannot be stopped! You can’t feed flowers poison and expect them to bloom out of season. So stop feeding yourself poison! Quit moaning and groaning. You are alive and that signals to heaven and earth that you can blossom no matter what! It’s your birthright as a born again child of God to release the fertile Word over your life along with praise and worship every single day!

God loves you and He is for you. Bloom! Show forth His praises to the watching world. Run to Him this morning and ask Him for fresh warmth from heaven to give you more beauty of the Spirit. And bloom in the Light of His wonderful mercy and grace!

Isaiah 43:21 The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise.

I Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light!

Ephesians 1:14 The Spirit is God’s guarantee that He will give us the inheritance He promised and that He has purchased us to be His own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify Him.

Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
