“He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge…” (Psalm 91:4)

Habakkuk 3:17-18 states “Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock tumblr_lf6btymqnG1qfg3voo1_400may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

What a disastrous situation being described by Habakkuk but like Habakkuk sometimes God appears to be silent amid all the trials tribulations and heartaches that goes on in our life from day to day and year to year. Like Habakkuk, we must wait in faith and trust in an unseen God until the time when the world will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of our Lord, and His presence that will forever shine throughout eternity in His pure and holy kingdom.

But before that time comes while we are In the midst of all the evil, and injustice in the world we live in, only our complete faithfulness, and dependability In God and His word will take us to the promise land.

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.

Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he 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 imagessteadfast. Because she had been willing to die, so that those under the cover of her wings would live. (Author Unknown)

“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8 (NKJV)

And like the mother bird who gave her life so her children might live, our Savior could have flown to safety also, but He refused to abandon His children. On Calvary Christ remained steadfast through it all, simply because He remained focused and through His faith, love and His endurance to stay the course He was willing to die for those under the cover of his wings so that those who have faith and believe would live with Him throughout eternity.

god-of-the-livingOh what love our Savior has shown for us. Through His death we have been justified by His blood, and through our faith we shall be saved from the wrath of sin.” All for His children “There is no greater love.” So now how do we repay the one who gave it all for our Salvation? God’s word tells us “He has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.” 2 Tim. 1:9 (NIV)

What can I say “while the one who lives by faith is not saved by his works, his works show that he lives by faith. His faith is revealed in his works, and thus he is promised life eternal.” So as a Child of God we have a lot of work to do to finish up Gods work here on earth and as we look at our world today, we don’t have any time to squander it away on the foolishness of this world. So friends LET’S GIVE IT ALL TO THE ONE WHO GAVE, AND STILL GIVES IT ALL FOR US!!!



So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
