God's Wings



An Article In National Geographic Several Years Ago Provided A Penetrating 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

He Was 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
She Instinctively Knew That The Toxic Smoke Would Rise

She Could Have Flown To Safety But 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

"He Will Cover You With His Feathers
And Under His Wings You Will Find Refuge"

Psalm 91:4
