Life Is For The Birds!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson

Luke 12:6-7

"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows"

Whenever I read Luke 12:7, I am always prone to ask if the hairs of our head are numbered before or after we lose most of them? That is meant to be humorous, but I know that the words are intended to show just how intimately the Lord knows us.

Joyce and I have a bright yellow canary we have named, Buddy. Buddy has one particular wild bird buddy that comes to a feeder outside the window from his cage. The two seem to have bonded and appear happy when they see each other through the window.

It always bothers me when I hear Christians speak as if the Lord was not aware of the details of their life. I think of how Ananias in Acts 9:10-17, tried to tell the Lord about Saul when he was ordered by the Lord to go and lay hands on Saul so his sight would be restored.

Perhaps our problem is that we lack a proper understanding of God’s Word. From Genesis to Revelation we read of God’s intimate knowledge of us and our surroundings. In Psalm 139 we read: "You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O LORD."

The next time you are tempted to feel alone and abandoned by the Lord, start looking around for the nearest sparrow (or any other bird). The Lord knows that bird by name and cares for it. If He does that, be assured that He will also take care of you.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
