A Banquet for Birds
As I go about my business during the summer days, I can hear the babies cheep-cheeping as their mama brings them food every half hour or so. All day long, I hear them. This morning, as I spent time with the Lord, the mama bird fed her babies, and I heard their cries. I thought to myself, that mama is so faithful! She never abandons them. She prepared a safe home for them, she kept them warm, ushered them into life, and now she feeds them all day long. They don’t want for a thing.
I felt an affinity with those little baby birds, as I considered how God feeds me. Faithfully, He nourishes me with His Word and protects me in my utter helplessness and dependence. He never abandons me. Even when He’s not in my sight, I know that He is nearby, and He will return to meet my needs. All I have to do is receive what He is offering.
How does the Lord nourish you? Have you seen Him meet your needs in a fresh, new way today?
