Yesterday a baby bird fell into a trash can of water, and I saw it and gently picked it up and held it in my hand.
The baby bird was so little and shivered with cold and I gently cupped the bird in my hand and began to blow my breath into my hand, and soon the baby bird stopped shivering and was warm.
I checked her feathers and knew they were still wet and there was only a small area of fuzz left on the baby’s head, and I thought this must have been the baby bird’s first flight.
I continued to blow my breath into my hand and the baby put her head out of my hand and peeped. Soon I took the bird outside on my deck and as I sat in silence and the feathers continued to dry, I began to hear all the sounds of birds of the air and the baby continued to peep without reacting to any sound.
I sat the baby bird on my finger, and she fluffed herself up and she continued to make her sounds. Then suddenly a certain sound came, and the baby bird looked all around, and the mother bird flew over and the baby kept looking in the direction of that sound.
The baby bird preening its feathers and fluffed up again and took to flight and flew to a tree being reunited in nature’s breeze.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31 NKJV.
You dear one, are of more worth and value to God than the tiniest sparrow that falls.
Beloved of God, He sees every minute detail of your life! How can you possibly know the number of hairs on your head or the number of cells in your body?
The LORD our Father knows it all and that is how intimately our Father in Heaven knows every detail of our life.
Even when we fall into insurmountable odds and circumstances and there is absolutely no way possible, we can recover, our loving Father God cares for us so much and ever rescues us while keeping us in the palm of His hand where nothing can pluck us out. And all the while giving us life and breath continuing to restore us as we are hidden in The Palm of His Hand.
No eye can see, or ear can hear the things that God has prepared for you! But He shall reveal it by His Spirit, for The Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
God restores us, renews, and revives us in so many ways. For destiny calls in the wings of the winds for you were created to fly and your destiny awaits, and you have been created for such a time as this.
Be not afraid for our loving Father who sits on The Throne, knows it all, and there is no where He is not.
There is a time to be hidden, then a time to be revealed and He knows exactly what all that means.
If this little message has spoken to your heart today, take time, not make time, to be still, quiet, and listen and you will begin again to hear anew and know He is God.
He will rescue and He will save for He Delights in you beloved!
“Even the birds of the air know the signs of the times, but My People do not,” says The LORD. “Learn, I say, learn of the birds.”
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
