But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
If you were to come to my home you would see immediately that I love the out doors. I have bird feeders in multiple places, flower beds in several locations, 3 humming bird feeders, my husband just got our first honey bee hive and we have 5 bird nesting boxes. We always have at least 1 set of blue birds nest each year. Our first for the year is pictured with this post. Our grand daughter loves to visit the boxes and watch the babies as they go from eggs to hatchlings to fledglings. It’s just a sweet process. Except for the fact that she always goes through the “Oh, I’m going to miss them sooooo much” whine. But it’s still sweet.
As I look at the babies in the box it makes me think about life. How scary it really is out here! The woman in Revelations was taunted, persecuted and was meet with opposition many times, driven into the wilderness but every time God was prepared, had prepared a place for her, within her where she would have strength to soar, fight and have victory. Just as the birds, our life can be and is scary, we find our self fighting the opposition, being tossed into the wilderness, seemingly alone but NEVER are we alone. God has always prepared for us a way. He has given us wings like eagles to spread and draw strength from Him, to learn from Him, draw Wisdom from Him, apply it to our lives. So the next time we find ourselves in the wilderness we should spread our wings even that much wider and pull from the Wisdom of the Knowledge of God.
Lord, Thank you for providing me with wings to soar. Thank you for giving me the strength needed and the love within to share. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, perfectly, with no bounds and showing me example after example after example of how to do life. Please Lord continue to be with me daily. Remind me, nudge me when I need to look within and change. Put in front of me the things I need to learn. Help me draw knowledge from You and keep that knowledge close to my heart so that I will draw from it continually. I love You Lord and I want nothing more than to have those that I love to know You the way that I do. Please help me reach them. For those that I can not reach and for those that will not listen, Lord touch their lives. Amen!
