Today it’s a bird. God used a bird to give Noah a sign that there was dry land. Shortly after my mom had died I was approaching the her cemetery and asked God to show me that he understood this travesty. Just as I rounded the bend a group of birds took flight and as I looked up I saw four head in one direction and one in the other (we had five in our family) which God’s voice of comfort telling me it was okay that this was so. Have you ever had an experience like that?
The text reminds us it is better if we don’t have signs, but rely solely on the Word. “It is good when He sends the visible evidence, but we appreciate it even more after we have trusted Him without it.”
