Psa 50v11 – Know every bird

What is your favourite bird? Mine is the African fish eagle. To hear its cry as it soars high in the heavens is the quintessential sound of Africa. If you are privileged to see it swoop down to catch a fish, it will make your spirit soar. If I had to ask you how many birds there are, it’s almost uncountable. Yet in the Psalms, God says, “I know every bird on the mountains, and all the animals of the field are mine.“ (Psalm 50:11). This is the Heavenly Father we worship. Intricately knowing and taking care of every detail of His creation. Jesus confirms this when he says, “What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.“ (Matthew 10:29). So what does this mean for you and me? With God as our Father, we never need to feel alone or afraid. If God so meticulously cares for His creation, how much more does He watch over and care for you? “So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” (Matthew 10:31).
