Today’s 333 Devotional: “Soaring in the Storm”
Most animals and birds run or fly away and hide from an oncoming storm, all that is, except the Eagle.
They relish the storm. They fly towards the storm, because it’s in the storm that they are able to soar to great heights, far above the storm itself. This is what they were created to do.
In the storms that come with life we’re like most of the animals and birds, we run and hide. But let me pose this, instead of running from the storms, let’s run towards them, because it’s in the storms of life that we’re able to soar high above getting God’s perspective on what’s happening in our lives.
M.S. Lowndes wrote the following poem entitled, “Soaring High, Soaring Free.”
“Flying high on the wings of eagles
Is where God wants us to be,
Soaring above the clouds of darkness
That cloak our misery
He wants us to rise above our problems
To see it from His perspective,
For then it doesn’t look quite as bad
Than what we thought or expected
God doesn’t want us to peck on the ground,
Nor wallow in the mire and mud
With our heads continually looking down,
Never thinking to look above
He wants us to be living victorious,
Overcoming the enemy,
To live an abundant, fulfilling life,
Soaring high and soaring free.”
But the only way we can soar on wings of eagles is to be well grounded in God’s word.
Jesus said, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24-25)
When the storms of life come knocking on our door, let’s let God’s word ground us as we soar to new heights getting God’s perspective on life.
