I put out bread and water for the wild birds every day.
Isn't this like God who put out manna in the desert for Israel?
If I can do this, who's to say God couldn't do it too in His wisdom, power and abilities?
The birds have no idea where or how the "manna" comes from. If I tried to explain the what, why and how of it to them, it would be so far over their heads that they could never understand it not even the language I was using.
Isn't this the same way God could possibly be with us?
If I even tried to get near them, (to explain it) they'd be frightened to death of me.
Just like we would be frightened to death of meeting God?
I put out the bread because I love them and I love to see them feasting on it receiving sustenance.
Isn't this probably the same way God sees us - His children?
This opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for the super-natural to occur doesn't it?
If God can bring down manna, who's to say He couldn't do other (to us) "super-natural" things as well? Like feeding 5,000 with a little bread and fish; walking on water; healing all kinds of sickness instantly; explaining to us His wisdom; and especially -- being raised from the dead.
To us this is impossible, and it is for us. But maybe God has the ability to operate under a whole different set of "rules"; just as humans operate under a different set of rules than birds do.
There's no difference between how God is with us, than how I am with my beautiful birds.
Until today, my faith has been lacking regarding super-natural happenings. I am a doubting Thomas. Because I wasn't there to actually witness these things, my logical brain could not truly, honestly, 100%, believe they all happened. But seeing this - how it is for me with my birds - has increased and deepened my faith on an enormous scale. Jesus having to die to save us; and us receiving another spirit to live inside us. Though I can't understand these things God has done, and can do, when I watch my birds who can't understand how I work I can believe in Him anyway and I can have faith.
Because - doesn't this make logical sense?
So I gratefully pick up my God's manna, and I can now believe God does things I will not understand.
As long as I am in this body, I am the same as the birds - I have a bird-brain. And so God came down as a bird so He could communicate with us show us Himself without frightening us to death.
Still don't believe? Still no faith? Put out some bread for the birds and watch. See for yourself.
I don't really have anything to say about myself other than the fact that I "feel" the Holy Spirit in me on a 24/7 basis. I'm a sober alcoholic and it is only by the Holy Spirit's power that I am still alive.
