Dr. Greg Beasley, a pastor from Colbert County, Alabama, sent in a good and timely message for this issue. Greg says to first read Psalm 55:4-7, 22 and then to follow up with reading the following message which:
The eagle is a fascinating bird. Did you know they can have up to a seven-foot wingspan. Now that’s long. He can glide at altitudes of more than 2,400 ft. He can cruise at a speed of 120 miles per hour. Twelve pounds is about his weight. But, talk about his strength, he can carry objects twice his weight over a distance of several miles. I don’t know about you, but to me that’s incredible.
Have you ever thought about having wings that long that you could soar far, far, far, above life’s difficulties? When bad things happen, and things come up that we don’t expect, life gets hard. We could just fly away from it all. But listen to what David said in verse 6, “Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest.”
Here is the beauty of our Lord found in verse 22. “Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” You know, God does not always deliver us from life’s problems and adversities. However, He will always supply His grace and mercy to see us through.
So now, “Lord, forgive me for wanting wings to fly away. Instead, we should ask for grace and mercy to carry us through.” We know that whatever God allows us to go through (notice I said go through) He is doing that to prepare us for something amazing and He is making us stronger than ever before.
I appreciate very much Greg furnishing this timely message for our readers. It’s a perfect reminder for all of us during this time of year.
