EAGLES AND CHOOKS
We have choices to make every day of our lives. We can choose to see ourselves as the world sees us…. or as God does.
We can exist like a caged chicken, eyes to the ground, pecking away at scraps just to survive and get through another day… quite content that this is as good as it will ever be. Or… we can believe what the Bible says about us and live life looking at our circumstances from a higher perspective.
Doubt, depression and fear simply destroy dreams. Faith, Hope and Love bring life to every situation we face. We are called to live like Eagles. To live believing that “Christ in us is the hope of glory!”
When God looks at us He sees the resurrection glory of His Son in us!! I love that! And yes.. there’s many days when I find myself behaving like an insecure intimidated chook..
As I flew to Cairns North Queensland last Saturday morning I looked out the window to see Double Island Point where I was surfing just last week. To see things from an Eagle’s perspective is spectacular!
To live knowing you are part of the big picture because of what Jesus has done is what you and I are born for.
I need to become more like an Eagle and kill the chicken!!!!
I’ve been complaining and murmuring that we don’t have the funds in the bank to achieve projects in front of us, including new album completion and a trip to PNG in a week. As I looked out of the plane the Holy Spirit quietly said “Just do it.. step out in faith and do what I have placed on your heart… prove them wrong and rise up like an Eagle and allow Me to provide what you need”.
OK God.. Let’s do it!!!!
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Thanks again for your prayers and support.
