Today I actually saw a chicken scratch the ground. lol He didn’t lose his (or her) balance. He was “sure-footed” and expectant that he would find a worm in the still damp ground. Watching him reminded me of Matthew 7:7-8,
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. __Matthew 7:7-8KJV
I said to myself that I should at least have the confidence of the chicken that scratches the ground, with an inner-knowing that beneath the surface (circumstances) lies an abundance that not only satisfies, but exceeds my expectations. The sparrow is wise and the chicken is bold. Prayer is knocking, ye scratching on the door of heaven and Faith opens the door!
