Under His Wing
Under His Wing An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a penetrating picture of God's Wing.... After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up the 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 form under their dead mother's wing. 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 steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, those under the cover of her wing would live..."He will cover you with feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge...(Psalm 91; 4) being lived this much should make a difference in your life, Remember the One who loves you and then, be different because of it.
