Seek First The Kingdom Of GOD: GOD Feeds The Fowls Of The Air, You Are Much More Important To GOD

Mat 6:26 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?

Brother Jim’s Understanding:

Look at and intently observe the mature creatures that fly through the air: they do not work at planting, neither do they work at harvesting, nor do they work at gathering and collecting the harvest for storage in barns or granaries; and still your Heavenly Father continuously provides them with food to eat. Are you not much more important to your Heavenly Father than these flying creatures are?


LORD Jesus was using the fowls of the air (mature creatures that fly through the air) as an object lesson. Let us consider the fowls of the air for a few moments. We witness them hunting for food and finding it rather readily. We witness them building their nests. We witness them feeding their young. We witness them flying through the air.

Consider the for a few moments, please:

  • Do you ever see a fowl planting seed?
  • Do you ever see a fowl taking care of crops?
  • Do you ever see a fowl harvesting a crop?
  • Do you ever see a fowl gathering its harvest into a barn for storage?

Fowls do none of this; they act in faith believing that when they are hungry they will readily find the food they need, and your Heavenly Father provides it for them, continuously. Consider this, please. Here are a myriad of creatures that will quickly find food whenever they need it because your Heavenly Father (Yehovah Yireh — The Self-Existent, Eternal, Covenant GOD Who Sees And Provides) sees their need and provides for them.

Now, our LORD Jesus Christ puts to us, puts to you, the question: Are you not much more important to your Heavenly Father than the fowls of the air, than any flying creature?

Look at and intently observe the mature creatures that fly through the air: they do not work at planting, neither do they work at harvesting, nor do they work at gathering and collecting the harvest for storage in barns or granaries; and still your Heavenly Father continuously provides them with food to eat. Are you not much more important to your heavenly Father than these flying creatures are?

Well, aren’t you much more important to your Heavenly Father than these flying creatures are? Consider, your heavenly Father is your Heavenly Father. Certainly your Heavenly Father created all kinds of flying creatures, however, your Loving Heavenly Father purposely created you to be His Holy Child, created in His Image and His Likeness.

If your Loving Heavenly Father provides food for the fowls of the air whenever they need it, even though they do not sow seed, care for crops, harvest crops, or gather in their crops, how much more will your Loving Heavenly Father provide for you, His Child created in His Image and His Likeness, if you will just trust Him and come to Him in faith; believing HE IS Yehovah Yireh, He LOVES you, and that He sees your need for food and will readily provide for you?


Scripture is given in the King James Version, 1769.
