Bird Struck! Raven

Family Devotional

Day Twenty-One

“Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, and he will prepare your way before you.” Matthew 11:10

Ravens also have the ability to mimic human speech. Stories about them include them being sent as messengers and prophets, both good and bad.

A single raven sits quietly on a tree branch, very regal, very beautiful. But smaller birds do not scatter into flight the way they do when a hawk approaches. The raven is not seen as a threat.

It was the ravens that God called upon to feed His prophet Elijah when he was in the wilderness. Ravens keep their surplus food hidden and often have extra resources in times of drought.

Elijah had done a great work of witness for God, but now he needed both food nourishment and soul nourishment because he was exhausted. After he slept and the ravens fed him, Elijah was ready to hear God’s words again.

Sometimes we also need God’s messengers through our friends and family to comfort us when we are sick or sad or disappointed. They share themselves with us and give us their strength until we are ready to take care of ourselves again. Other times God might ask us to be a messenger to someone in need.

When we listen and repeat God’s words so that they are true and familiar to us, then we have the right resources to share with others.


Action
1. Every day for a week, look for someone who needs a message of hope.

2. Share with them words of comfort, or time to listen, or food to cheer them.
