Look at the Birds of the Air…
As I was pulling up to my parents home today, I noticed a little bird sitting in one of my Mom’s beautiful, springtime blooming trees. There on a tree branch, sat one of God’s creatures, with it spitting snow all around, just resting. (I felt like this little bird was placed there just for me from my Heavenly Father.) As I got out of my car to take a picture, praying it wouldn’t fly away and thanking the Lord for what a beautiful sight, the words Jesus spoke about the birds of the air came to my mind.
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:26-34
Worry, it is something I have always struggled with in my walk with Christ. Noticing that little bird today made me realize even more how much God is in control and He is always a whisper away. A whisper away to drown out any doubt, worry or fear the enemy tries to put in our mind. The enemy is always on the prowl to rob you of any blessing that God has intended for you. I could’ve just kept driving up the driveway and thought, “another bird who cares?”…but instead the Lord opened my heart to see a little sweet reminder of what SCRIPTURE says about worry through one of His creatures. (Thank you LORD!) One of His creatures that HE cares so much for, but HE cares SO much more for you than the birds of the air! JESUS LOVES YOU!!!
I pray and hope you will be on the look out for Gods little blessings today! They are all around, just open the eyes of your heart.
On the way to my parents, I also noticed that the Buttercups got a snow on them after all!
