Birds of the Bible – God’s Care For Birds

But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: (Job 12:7 KJV) Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? (Job 35:11 KJV)

God has promised that He will watch over the birds of the air to see that they are fed.

Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat. (Job 38:41 KJV)
He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry. (Psa 147:9 KJV)
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. (Luk 12:6-7 KJV)

Let the Birds of the Air teach us to put our trust in the Lord especially with the difficult times that are facing us today. With the economy, finances, jobs, problems, health, and other pressures pressing on us, look to the Lord, our Saviour, King, Ruler, Creator, and the All Mighty God who cares about every aspect of our lives and wants to provide all for us. He loves the birds, but He loves and cares so much more about us.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 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 today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O 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. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Mat 6:25-34 KJV)

God Will Take Care of You

Be not dismayed whate’er betide,
God will take care of you;
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.

Refrain:
God will take care of you,
Thro’ ev’ry day, O’er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

All you may need He will provide,
God will take care of you;
Trust Him, and you will be satisfied,
God will take care of you.

No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you;
Lean, weary one, upon His breast,
God will take care of you.

  1. How refreshing to find your site. I too am a Christian and enjoy photography. I love God’s creation. It ministers to me about how awesome He is.
    I’ll come back frequently to visit your blog.

  2. What a wonderful site! Thank you for such encouragement. My grandmother was such a bird lover, especially the hummingbirds. Unfortunately, she probably is not in Heaven after the many conversations I had with her over the years. I love how the Lord reminds us every day of His care for us through His creation and especially the birds. I remember being especially discouraged one day last year. I had just gotten home from work and sat there in the car for a few seconds talking to the Lord about it. All of a sudden birds of every description begin appearing all over my lawn. I saw the jays and thought of how they bully the other birds and God reminded me that we are safe in His care from our Adversary. I saw a crow, and was reminded of Elijah and how the ravens fed him by the brook Cherith when he was discouraged by Jezebel. When I see the dove, I think of His blessed Holy Spirit who comforts us in times of trial and affliction. “God Will Take Care of You” is one of my favorite hymns. I sang this at church a few months after I finished my chemo and radiation treatments for breast cancer back in 2005/06. I’m thankful for the many lessons God has taught me through that time and up to the present time.
