What Does A Hummingbird Symbolize In The Bible?

There is no specific reference to hummingbirds in the Bible. However, birds are often used in the Bible as symbols of spiritual truths. For example, in the book of Matthew, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a bird that came and built its nest in a man's house (Matthew 13:32). In this passage, the bird is a symbol of God's presence and care.

In some cultures, hummingbirds are seen as symbols of hope, joy, and the beauty of creation. They are also often associated with love and affection because of their ability to hover in midair and their colorful appearance. However, these associations are not explicitly tied to the Bible or any specific religious tradition.

What does God say about hummingbirds?

There is no mention of hummingbirds in the Bible. However, some men associate hummingbirds with the divine qualities of eternity, continuity, and infinity. Some also see the hummingbird as standing for faith and hope. The sight of a hummingbird may also remind us to remain still, live in the moment, and stop obsessively thinking about the past and the future.

Here are some other possible meanings of hummingbirds, that were created by God, to make the world more beautiful and peaceful. 

Joy and happiness 

Yes, in many cultures and traditions, birds are seen as symbols of joy and happiness. This may be because birds are often associated with the beauty of nature and the freedom of flight. The sight of a bird in flight can be uplifting and bring a sense of joy and wonder. 

In the Bible, birds are often used as symbols of God's presence and care, which can bring believers a sense of joy and comfort. In literature and art, birds are often used as symbols of hope, renewal, and the beauty of the natural world.

Are hummingbirds angels sent by God?

Hummingbird Angel


No. There is no religious doctrine that states that hummingbirds are angels sent by God. However, some people may believe that hummingbirds are symbols of hope, love, and joy and that they are a reminder of the beauty and wonders of the natural world. 

In many cultures, hummingbirds are seen as good luck charms and are believed to bring good fortune to those who encounter them. 

Some people may also believe that hummingbirds have a special meaning or significance and that they are somehow connected to a higher power or spiritual realm. Ultimately, hummingbirds are connected to the spiritual realm in that they were created by God. Whether or not one believes that hummingbirds are angels or have a spiritual significance is a matter of personal belief and interpretation. Be sure to keep in mind there is no mention of hummingbirds in the Bible.

Why do hummingbirds come close to humans?

As we’ve discussed what some believe they represent, a good person with those feelings and a great mindset may be associated with a hummingbird, because they also are thought to symbolize the same things. 

Hummingbirds are attracted to nectar-bearing flowers and will often fly near humans if they are near flowering plants or if they are wearing bright colors that resemble flowers. Hummingbirds are also attracted to hummingbird feeders, which are often filled with a solution of sugar water that simulates the nectar found in flowers.

If you have a hummingbird feeder in your yard, hummingbirds will likely come close to you as they visit the feeder to feed. Additionally, hummingbirds are naturally curious and may fly close to humans out of curiosity or to investigate their surroundings. In general, hummingbirds are not fearful of humans and will often approach them without hesitation.

What is unique about a hummingbird?

Unique Hummingbird


Hummingbirds are unique in many ways. One of the most notable features of hummingbirds is their ability to fly. They are the only birds that can hover in place and fly backward, and they can beat their wings up to 80 times per second. 

This allows them to perform acrobatic feats, such as flying through tight spaces and even flying upside down. Hummingbirds are also the smallest birds in the world, with some species weighing less than a penny. 

They have the highest metabolism of any animal, and they require a constant supply of nectar to fuel their high-energy lifestyle. They are also known for their brightly colored feathers, which they use to attract mates.
