Red winged black birds are common in our area.
Beautifully colored with yellow and red on a contrasting black, they are vivid to behold.
This past weekend, one came to rest in front of me on a protruding tree knob. A perfect opportunity for a photograph!
Looking at the image later, I happened to think about where he was.
I considered his little legs and feet.
Even though he was only a few inches above the ground, I don’t believe he could have walked there.
It would have been too steep.
He surely didn’t worry about that, however, because he was also equipped with…wings.
With wings, he could fly, and he knew it.
Up, down, sideways, high, low—they could take him there.
There are places we would like to go, things we would like to do.
There are places God wants us to go, things He wants us to do.
Many times, we look down at our scrawny legs and little feet and think, "No. I’d never make it. It’s just too difficult. The path is too steep."
We forget that God can give us unseen "wings."
Wings to give us flight to those places in life we thought we would never attain.
Wings to carry us up over the obstacles we think will win over our God given dreams.
Wings to send us far into the will of God for our lives.
Why not open up your heart to Him?
Where does He want you to………fly?
As for God, his way is perfect:
The LORD’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.
—2 Samuel 22:31-34
