Birds come and go this time of year.
Some fly for long distances to find shelter in a warmer climate.
In a way that I could never fully understand, I believe God tells the birds when and where to travel.
Some call it instinct.
I call it God’s direction.
When the birds set out on their journey, surely they must have a confidence in what they will eventually find.
A faith, if you will, on the part of the bird, to trust in that which it cannot yet see.
God has told us of what is in store for those who love Jesus.
We have an assurance that comes from Him about our future.
We have confidence in what we hope for.
Today, notice any birds that might be around you as you travel to work or look out your window.
They listen for God’s direction.
Are you listening?
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
