Momma birds and sometimes Papa birds do a great job feeding their babies. They build a nest to protect the birds while they go out and look for food. They then bring back the food and feed the babies. The baby birds don’t have to do a thing. They just have to let Momma know that they are hungry and she feeds them. When she is done feeding them they are satisfied. God is like our Momma bird. Read Psalm 81: 8 -10.
8 Listen, My people, and I will admonish you. Israel, if you would only listen to Me! 9 There must not be a strange god among you; you must not bow down to a foreign god. 10 I am Yahweh your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
The key to being fed until we are full spiritually is to put God first in our lives. We are to have no other gods ahead of Him. He may not have brought us out of Egypt like the Israelites, but He did save us and gave us eternal life with Him. There should be nothing else before Him. Yet the majority of Christians are not living that way. They put sports, fun activities, kids, spouses, parents, school, jobs, hobbies, vacations, etc all ahead of Him. They schedule everything in their lives before they make time for Bible Study, Church, or Service. Once they have accomplished those things , then they see if they can make it to Sunday Services once that month. Or maybe they volunteer for a job at church that conveniently fits their schedule and is easy to do. Many are making gods out of the things in their life. Many are being left unfed. Spiritually empty. That is why we see division in churches, broken homes and marriages inside the church, etc. We are empty. We have chosen other gods. Let’s follow God’s instructions in these verses to stay inside His protecting nest and look to no other but our Momma bird to feed us. Open wide and let Him fill you!
