Over the weekend, I was outside praying while I watched two sparrow play and frolic in the warm spring air. The the Lord spoke to me and said “Soon so many of my people will be singing with glee in the morning, just as the sparrows of the air, that they have been given the provision.” It caused my heart to jump up when I heard this, I felt this provision is coming sooner than we expected it to come. He reminded me consider the Lilies of the field how they do not have to toil or stress, just to grow, yet they are more splendidly clothed than Solomon in all of the finest clothing. The Lord showed me that He is providing for us even at times we do not know which way to go or which way to walk.
This reminded me of the children of Israel wondering in the desert, the entire landscape looking the exact same as it did yesterday and the day before that, but every morning there was manna from heaven everywhere. They could only gather what they would eat for that day, except the day before the Sabbath, or the manna would be unfit to eat. He showed me a vision that the birds of the air and the other animals, in this time, also benefited from the overflow of abundance from heaven.
The Lord showed me this is often what happens when He blesses us, all of those around benefit from the overflow of blessing. The Lord reminded me that not a feather falls off of a sparrow without the Lord knowing, and if He concerns Himself so much with a sparrow, than How Much More does He consider our needs. Thank you Jesus that You love us more than we will Ever Know.
Matthew 6:26 (NKJV)
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
