Big verses little, one against two, raven verses magpies… this is what I saw as I walked April this evening. I smiled as I watched the trio. The raven was clearly annoyed by the tenacious magpies who eventually won as the bigger raven finally flew away in defeat. The three were atop the Post Office roof. The raven didn’t want to give up his perch, but two against one proved to be too much. The magpies were little in comparison to his stature, the two probably made one of the bigger bird. Even though smaller, they had something the raven didn’t. Teamwork. They were almost tag teaming him. The Lord spoke to me as I watched them, two are better than one. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, “9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
You try to do everything alone, you against the world. You have Me to draw on and I’ve surrounded you with a circle to lean on. You’re shoulders weren’t meant to carry it all, no one can handle that. What is happening in the unseen will eventually come to light. Use those I’ve placed in your path. Matthew 18:19, “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” The prayers of two people are more powerful than the magpies against the raven. Whatever mountain you are trying to conquer has to crumble when you have a strong, praying circle behind you. I’m not alone, you are not alone. Whatever you are struggling with, trust your inner circle to pray you through, and give it to a God. He will show up and show out on your behalf. Don’t think you have a circle to form that threefold cord? Send me a message and I’ll pray with you.
I couldn’t help but smile at the bird showdown. It amazes me how God speaks to us in the little things around us. Too often we miss conversations with Him because we are immersed in self. Too upset, too happy, too mad, too sick… all we have to do is silence ourselves and listen. He may speak in that still small voice, He may have someone call you, or even have someone post something that speaks directly to your situation. Are you watching and listening for your Father? Poppa remove any blinders from my eyes and unstop my voice, I want to hear from you today! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
