A Picture of God’s Wings

Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.

A little something to put things in perspective…

An article in National Geographic several years ago provided an interesting picture of God’s wings. After a forest fire in Yellowstone 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. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, 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 the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. When the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live.

Jesus did this for you. He proved He loved you this much and so it should make a difference in your life.

Remember the One who loves you, and then be different because of it. If you haven’t, yet received Him as your personal Savior, do so. He died to forgive you of your sins, to take the punishment for your sins, and to give you eternal life! Such love! Want to know more about making Jesus your savior? Click here.
