I Chron.16:11 Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face always
Recently, as I sat on my back porch, I noticed a large flock of blackbirds in the backyard. They were flying from the trees to the ground and back again. While on the ground, they scurried around looking for food. They would hunt and peck, hunt and peck, hunt and peck. Finally one of them noticed the bird feeder filled with delicious sunflower seeds. This particular bird flew to the feeder, taking his fill, and not moving for a very long time. I am not sure if this bird signaled the others, or they just noticed him in their field of vision, but in just a moment others had joined him. They filled each available perch on the feeder while twenty or more sat on the fence, looking as if they were waiting their turn. Some flew to the ground and ate the seed which spilled over from the feeder as the birds on the perches munched away.
It is this way for many people They flit here and there, looking for something to satisfy them. They think they’ve discovered it, so they perch for a while and digest the activity they’ve pursued. Hopefully, someone they know or encounter will have found the true source of satisfaction (a personal relationship with Jesus). The opportunity for sharing the gospel will arise, and the “flitting” person will have spiritual food for thought, or perhaps a salvation experience!
The Bible is just like that full bird feeder- it is just waiting for people to come and feast. .When this occurs, they will no longer be satisfied to hunt and peck, and hunt and peck for fulfillment. They will share the good news and their friends will want to come to the table for the feast which has been prepared for them.
