Study the Birds

The Bible tells us to study the birds, what amazes me about birds is that no matter the season they are the same. It’s -8 degrees outside and once I shoveled and put food in the feeder they were there immediately for breakfast was served. They didn’t pound on the window demanding food, they waited in the tree as I shoveled and watched as I went in to warm up and continued to wait as I poured the seed in their feeder. Now as you can see they are enjoying what they’ve been given.

Soon it will be 80 degrees outside and they will still be there. The seasons don’t change them, they remain the same through every season of creation. As I study the birds I am built in my faith because Gid provides for me daily just as I provide for the birds. The Lord invites me to wait patiently for Him and to not be moved by the changing seasons for He is always faithful in every season.

I’m a city girl, when I was younger the only thing I knew about birds is that when the robins come out spring is near. But God uses the simple things like birds to communicate a big message that He is faithful and brings the Bible to life yet again. Study the birds, there is a lot to learn from them.

Matthew 6:26 “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?”
