Reach Higher!

I have doves that come to my house to feed. They peck in search of food under my bird feeders. They search out whatever food has fallen as the other birds are eating.

Today for the first time I saw two doves eating directly from the feeders!

I think they finally realized in order to get what they needed – they must go higher – directly to the source!

Yes, sometimes we get what we need from what others have learned – but, sometimes we need to go higher – directly to the Source!!!

I have hummingbird feeders and bird feeders positioned strategically in my yard. This morning as I was on my porch, I thought, “I hear the birds; I see the birds; but they won’t come and feed from my bird feeders!”

On the heels of this thought, I heard the Lord in my Spirit say, I hear My people; I see My people; but they won’t come to me and be strengthened and feed from My word and from My presence!

The Lord has given us everything that we need to be shaped and molded into a vessel that He can use for His glory.  He has given us everything that we need to grow – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

He has it available…but are we intentionally coming and receiving His life-giving Food?  Are we drinking from His Living Water?

Hear the Lord today!  He is calling you!  COME!!


The eyes of all look to You,
And You give them their food in due time.
You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

(Psalm 145: 15-16 NASB)
