Today while sitting in the yard, I listened to a little mockingbird sing his impressive songs from high on a wire to attract a mate.
The sky was the most amazing blue….with white billowing clouds in stark contrast.
I saw a large bluebird swoop repeatedly down from the treetop to grab the beetles and bugs in the lawn to complete his morning meal.
It was indeed a sacred event, for this is God’s work.
The Father spoke clearly to my heart.
He asked me if I knew why He made the birds. And before I could think of an answer….He continued to say….
“They are created to remind man of My presence and provision.
I send them throughout the earth; to the highest mountains and the lowest valleys. I even order them to fly the expanse of the seas.”
Wow, I thought….this is true. There isn’t a place on earth where man dwells that you won’t find a bird.
He continued, “Their songs and behavior are My language to the people in all the lands and seas of the earth. These flying witnesses of My providence have been assigned for the comfort and encouragement of My children.
Just like the Rainbow, I have given them as a sign of My Love and care.
I wrote all the songs that they sing. Their melody and harmony announce My Glory.
I show them where to look for food and how to build their nests.
INDEED, I care for them ALL.”
As soon as He stopped speaking to me….a small grey cloud covered the sun and it became too cold to sit outside.
I came inside and that’s when He told me to resume my blog.
So I am going to do what He said.
Almost ALWAYS when the Lord speaks to me it is in word pictures or other natural events. I pray that whoever reads my blog will also have times when the Lord gives them insight into His Heart and Mind.
It is so wonderful.
He really does LOVE us EVEN MORE THAN THE BIRDS and desires to intimately commune with us EVERY DAY!!!!
