Bible Verses About Birds

What does the Bible say about birds?

Scripture makes it clear that God is a bird watcher and He loves and cares about all birds. That is an awesome thing for us. God provides for the cardinal birds, the ravens, and the hummingbirds. If God provides for the birds when they cry out to Him, how much more will He provide for His children! Psalm 11:1 “I take refuge. How then can you say to me: Flee like a bird to your mountain.”

50 Inspirational Bible Verses About Birds (Birds Of The Air)

Christian quotes about birds

“Our sorrows are all, like ourselves, mortal. There are no immortal sorrows for immortal souls. They come, but blessed be God, they also go. Like birds of the air, they fly over our heads. But they cannot make their abode in our souls. We suffer today, but we shall rejoice tomorrow.” Charles Spurgeon

“There are joys which long to be ours. God sends 10,000 truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.” Henry Ward Beecher

“The early morning hour should be dedicated to praise: do not the birds set us the example?” Charles Spurgeon

“Clean and unclean birds, the dove and the raven, are yet in the ark.” Augustine

“Praise is the beauty of a Christian. What wings are to a bird, what fruit is to the tree, what the rose is to the thorn, that is praise to a child of God.” Charles Spurgeon

“They who have no Bible may still look up to the moon walking in brightness and the stars watching in obedient order; they may see in the joyous sunbeams the smile of God, and in the fruitful shower the manifestation of His bounty; they hear the rending thunder utter His wrath, and the jubilee of the birds sing His praise; the green hills are swelled with His goodness; the trees of the wood rejoice before Him with every quiver of their foliage in the summer air.” Robert Dabney

“The old sun shone a good deal brighter than it ever had before. I thought that it was just smiling upon me; and as I walked out upon Boston Common and heard the birds singing in the trees, I thought they were all singing a song to me. …I had not a bitter feeling against any man, and I was ready to take all men into my heart.” D.L. Moody

“In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety.” A.W. Tozer

“Our sorrows are all, like ourselves, mortal. There are no immortal sorrows for immortal souls. They come, but blessed be God, they also go. Like birds of the air, they fly over our heads. But they cannot make their abode in our souls. We suffer today, but we shall rejoice tomorrow.” Charles Spurgeon
