“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?” (Matthew 6:26 KJV).
According to the above Scripture, Jesus tells us that the birds of the air do not sow or reap, nor do they gather food in barns. Why not? Because God takes care of them. For this reason, every morning, bright and early, birds are perched on branches outside of our windows tweeting a sweet melody. This lets us know that it’s a new day, filled with the beauty of nature that God designed specifically with us in mind.
Many of us fail to realize that the birds are singing because they are enjoying the beauty that surrounds them. God has supplied the trees, the warmth of the sun, the sweet smell of an array of flowers, and the worms. But why do we fail to see the provisions that are already in place for us?
According to our clocks and what some of us call “noise,” some people are not happy about hearing the beautiful tweets of singing birds. Especially on early Sunday mornings, which are for sleeping in, and those noisy birds need to be quiet. They fail to realize that God has put a melody in their hearts.
There will come a day when every activity under the sun will cease. We’re going to miss the sound of chirping birds at the rising of the sun. His mercies are new every morning, His loving kindness never ceases, and His grace is amazing; (Lam. 3:23). All of creation sings to the Lord, He gives us joy, and strengthens; (Ps. 96:1; Neh. 8:10). All praises belong to God. We worship and adore You. It’s a blessing that God called His heavenly birds to serenade us. What can be better than waking up to the sound of all the pretty birds singing unto the Lord?
They are perched on a branch near my bedroom window. They never worry because they know God is with them and He feeds them every day. A mother bird will not miss feeding her little ones. Just the same is Almighty God, as the “Breasted One” is always faithful to meet our need; (Ps. 23:1). We should never worry about tomorrow because God is already there. He goes before us and behind us. He is always with us and will never leave us or forget us. For these reasons that I’m thankful for the birds!
