Fly High with God (Morning)
Zechariah 4:6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, ’ Says the LORD of hosts.
An eaglet watches his peers. They are playing far away on the horizon, catching the clouds as they fly higher. Something squeezes his heart, he envies them. He cannot erase his first experience when he almost died after trying his first unsuccessful flight attempt. His fragile legs shake, his nerves trembling inside his body. He sees below his nest, a huge chasm separates him and the horizon far beyond. He steps backward, hesitates.
But his mother shakes her huge feathered wing, which spans six feet from end to end. It disturbs the delicate balance the young eaglet has. He could feel the wind on his back. He could no longer feel the warmth of his nest. He tries to flap his wings but nothing happens. When he finally accepted his fate, a huge claw grabs his tiny body. His mother brings him in her claws. He could feel the breeze, it calms his nerves. Then he looks at his mother.
After they reach their nest new confidence rises. He is ready to take another chance because he knows: his mother would never abandon him even if he is just millimeters from death. If he falls her mother will catch him and bring him back, multiple times until his wings are strong enough to carry his weight and allow him to soar higher beyond any avian species could ever reach.
Does fear paralyze you? Does a huge chasm frighten you? Does failure upon failure take better of you? While you think about your dreams your heart is no longer excited. Your failures make you doubt your own choices and life. What should you do? Close your eyes. Do not see that huge chasm, ignore your trembling feet. Focus your mind on His cross. You’ll find your faith once again. He will catch you with His mighty hands and bring you back into safety, to once again encourage you to try and together with Him, soar and conquer the sky.
When GOD BRINGS us to fly high, He will make sure that we would STAY ABOVE.
1. Can you share your experiences and struggles that unable you to fly higher and reach your dreams?
2. What makes Him want to make you soar higher than before?
3. What will you do while waiting for His intervention and make you fly high above all else with Him guides you?
“Father, we believe You are our ever-loving and benevolent LORD. You take care of our lives. You know our potential and how difficult our strife is. Help us LORD and allow us to ascend higher with You. Because in our weaknesses Your might and power be manifested. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
