As I was driving across the lake one day a rather large bird flew in front of my car. He seemed to be having a great time just gliding along in the wind from side to side and waiting and looking for his next free meal from the Lord. Jesus quickend these verses to me from this little illustration that the Lord provided. “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? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, If God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, 0 ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:26-33). The Lord wants us to be free like that bird just trusting in him and having faith that he will take care of everything for us. “But my’ God shall supply all of your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. “(Philippians 4: 19). Won’t you trust him today? Just do your part and God will do the rest. Just roll away the stone then watch God do a miracle. “Remember though, the birds just can’t stay all the time in the comfort and safety of their nest. They have to venture out sometimes in the cold and rain and seek and then they shall find. Oh, by the way, “He made the stars also.” (Genesis 1:16b)
