It is about how a bird changed the destiny of a man. This man had been a Christian for about 5years and his new life in Christ hasn’t been easy for him. He finally decided to end it all as he was not ready to cheat people to make money. He decided to cheat life this time by hanging himself.
One early morning, he went to the forest to commit suicide. As he journeyed to end his life, he noticed a bird was following him at a distant. When he walked, the bird walked. He stood still, the bird did the same. He sat, it sat. He sang, it sang. Then the man yelled “wonders shall never end. How could a bird repeat what I do? This is not right. There is something wrong somewhere.”
The bird also responded “wonders shall never end. How could a man created in the image of God decide to end his precious life? This is not right. There is something wrong somewhere.”
The man after hearing this broke into tears. He told the bird “you have no idea what I have been through for the past 5 years; no wife, no kid, no family, no job, no money, no home, and no joy. I want to end it all!”
The bird came closer and said ” Man, you are a perfect creature of the Most High God. He created you in His image and likeness. You have the ability to do things and think like Him. You can sow and reap. You can create and recreate. You can do everything you set mind to do. Look at me, I can’t sow, reap, think like God. I can’t invent. And you guys kill us for food yet we find good reason every morning to give thanks to God.
Man, you have power to change your situation. Search within you and you will find something, something unique that you can use to change the world around you. I don’t kill myself when there is no food in the morning, I keep searching, and searching till I get food. God will be disappointed if you kill yourself. Your life is the greatest thing you have on earth so don’t sell it to the devil.”
The man prayed for forgiveness and went home to start life all over again. He sowed the few seeds he had in his house, and after 5 years he became the best farmer in his town. He produced enough to feed his community, and the nearby communities.
This is my message for you today. God created you in His image and likeness. He equipped you with all you need to succeed in this life. You have something on the inside that nobody on earth has ever thought of. The world is waiting for you come out with your ideas. You are not ordinary my friend. You are perfect creation of the Most High God.
