A Bird in the Mountains


While hiking through the mountains, I came across this bird.


According to my research, this is a “Steller’s Jay.”

“Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air.  He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.”

— Genesis 2:19, NIV1984.

I don’t really know this Steller’s Jay; he stopped for a picture, but that was the extent of it.  However, God knows every creature.  He says, “every animal of the forest is mine … I know every bird in the mountains.”  (Psalm 50:10-11, NIV1984).

God knows every bird in the mountains.  Not one is forgotten by God.  And Jesus says we are worth more than many birds.  (Luke 12:6-7).
