He Cares For You

It’s beginning to look like spring and the birds are arriving by the thousands to their summer home in Alaska.  Seeing the birds return has reminded me of the care and attention to detail that our heavenly Father has taken for even the birds of the air, and the as the scripture says, “How much more does he care for his children.”

Jeremiah 8:7 says, “Even the migratory birds are punctual to their seasons. Yes, the stork excelling in the great height of her flight in the heavens, knows her appointed times of migration and the turtle dove, the swallows and the crane observe the time of their return.”

The birds know and understand when it’s time to take their long journey. God has created in them the instinctive ability to know when it’s time to migrate to the destination appointed for them.

Jesus said in Matthew chapter 10: “Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father noticing. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

Recently I was hired to do an extensive audit and before I knew it, I was handed a long-term temporary job filling in for a staff member in the department.  It was a grueling time trying to learn what was expected of me. I even began to question the Lord why I was put in this position. Soon enough it became very clear to me that it was God’s favor upon me and it was not my ability that would make me a success at this job, but relying on Him that gives me the ability. Oh, how I had to rely on Him! There are more times than I can count that I got in a situation where I didn’t know what to do, but by simply asking for the Holy Spirit to give me the answer, I can say that He never once failed to give me the direction I needed.

 The Lord has shown how much He cares for His children; “even so much more than many sparrows!”
