The other day I was sitting outside the church in my car getting ready to go inside the church when something caught my eye. It was some little birds playing around and searching for food, at first it was just a few birds then more joined. I just sat and watched these little birds play, eat, and fly around looking for a morsel of food to eat. It was a beautiful scene with the snow on the ground and snow on the tree and the birds flying around. I just sat and looked as these little birds where just living their life and then it hit me, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” (Matthew 6:27)
How awesome is our God? He is just amazing and awesome! Those little birds that fly around searching for food have no idea that God created them and that God is providing food for them to eat. God cares for those birds! Why? Because He created them during the creation week. He cares because He made them to glorify Himself.
Sometimes I start to wonder if God sees me or even cares about the things I do and then birds reminded me. God sees and God cares! Am I not more valueable to God than a sparrow! Yes I am and so are you. We are created in the very image of God, we were created after God’s likeness! If God provides for the little birds in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska then take comfort that God will provide for you. The next time you see a bird looking for food be reminded that God cares for you!
