A heartwarming picture of God’s wings in this inspirational Story below, written many years ago, sorry I don’t know who the Author is yet.
After a forest fire in a National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage.
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. The eerie sight saddened him and he toppled over the bird gently with a stick and to his amazement three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother’s wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies.
Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.
Psalm 91:4- 5 He shall cover thee with His feathers and under His Wings shalt thou Trust, His Truth shall be thy Shield and Buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night nor for the arrow that flieth by day.
Being Loved this much should make a difference in our lives.
We remember the One who Loves us, and then by the power of the Holy Spirit we choose to be different because of Him and He empowers us so we can be.
Loving God with all our heart we Long to please Him and by our heart repentance and accepting God’s sacrificial gift of Eternal life by believing in Jesus Christ His Son who has set us free from the Slavery and danger of sin, the Holy Spirit will give us the Strength as we ask Trust in the Truth of His Word to Live a Life that brings Glory to the Lord and He will…..
Lift us up in due time, He promises us He will!
(1Peter 5:6-7 & Matthew 21:22 & 1John3:1-11)
