Senior Pastor’s Devotional
Day 61 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles…”
The following illustration has been around the email circuit for quite a while but it is a good reminder.
A man found an eagle’s egg and put it into the nest of a prairie chicken. The eaglet hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them.
All his life, the eagle, thinking he was a prairie chicken, did whatever the other prairie chicken was doing. He scratched in the dirt for seeds and insects to eat. He clucked and cackled. And he flew in a brief thrashing of wings and flurry of feathers no more than a few feet off the ground. And so the eagle, thinking he was just a prairie chicken and not able to soar into the heights, lived his life groveling and picking at the ground, never experiencing the exhilaration of flight and the majesty which was his by birthright.
Tragically, this is the picture of many Christians today. With the God-given ability to “soar on wings like eagles,” as Isaiah wrote, they fail to take advantage of the abilities and blessings that God has prepared for all who truly hope and trust in him.
Do you really desire to be what you were meant to be? Here is what you must do:-
1. Know your identity in Christ.
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become the children of God.” Jn.1:12.
2. Let go of your past.
2 Cor. 5:17.You must fight this at all cost. You are not bound by the past anymore! You are freed! You are not a failure. You are not disadvantaged.
3. Start taking small steps of faith to do what you have not done before. Heb.11:6.
You are meant for fruitfulness IN Christ and THROUGH Christ!
