Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26
The older we get, the most stressful life seems to get. We have more responsibilities therefor we have more worries. We worry about paying or mortgage or rent, providing food for our families, and clothes and other necessities. However as Jesus has taught us we can learn a lot from The Birds.
The Birds don’t work for a living, they don’t waste a moment of there lives stressing out, yet God still provides all there needs. Do they deserve it? But our human standards we would say no, but God believes they deserve it, don’t you think he believes you are worth of being taken care of also?
(Matthew 6:27) “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
This might be one of the best questions of all time, and of course we know it doesn’t. However this won’t stop us from continually worrying about everything in our life. When do we come to a point where we can trust in God to provide for us?
We can learn a lot from The Birds, they go about there daily lives singing beautiful songs and don’t spend a single hour worrying. You might say well they don’t know any better, don’t they? Or do we overthink everything? Worrying is for The Birds.
(Exodus 17:4)” Then Moses cried out to the LORD, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.”
When Moses lead the Isrealites out into the wilderness to find the promise land, everyone began to worry. They complained there was no water, there was no food. Moses was overwhelmed turned to God. And as always God provided.
(Exodus 17:5) “The LORD answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go.
What seemed humanly impossible was nothing for God, he created a flowing river in the middle of the desert to supply all his people with water. If these people trusted God, just as The Birds do, they would have nothing to worry about.
(Matthew 6:30) “If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you–you of little faith?”
God supplies everything, including the grass, flowers, birds, ect with everything it needs to survive, why don’t you think God will supply your needs also?
Take a lesson from the Birds, instead of worrying, sing songs of rejoice because God loves you and will take care of all of your needs in Jesus name Amen
