Have you ever watched birds eating in a snowy day? It takes great effort on their part, but they don’t just sit around waiting for someone to put food in their mouths. If a bird sits still instead of gathering the food that God has provided, it will starve.
Birds have faith that food is available somewhere, so they keep searching. They do not sit on the spot where they found food yesterday and wait for more food to show up today. They keep looking, obviously confident that food is available somewhere. We can learn a good lesson from the birds: although they have nothing stored up for their future, they don’t worry. Neither should we. They gather daily what God provides for them. If God provides the birds imagine their children. So should we.
“Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat, they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are.” (Matthew 6:26)
Jesus stated clearly that God is the One who provides food for the birds. This implies that God provides for every creature. We should recognize that God is the Source of all the good that we enjoy in life and that He is the provider of whatever we need. Therefore, when you have a need, keep searching for the provision while keeping your focus on strengthening your spiritual life. You are valuable to God and He will take care of you.
