Eagles Wings

Descend from the crest. Song of Songs 4:8

Bearing the burden of crushing weight actually gives 
Christians wings. This may sound like a contradic-
tion in terms, but it is a blessed truth. While endur-
ing a severe trial, David cried, "Oh, that I had wings
of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest." Ps 55:6
Yet before he finished his meditation, he seems to
have realized that his wish for wings was attainable,
for then he said, "Cast your cares on the Lord and
He will sustain you." Ps 55:22
The word "burden" is described in my Bible commen-
tary as being "what Jehovah has given you.The 
saints' burdens are God-given, leading us to wait on 
Him. And once we have done so, the burden is trans-
formed into a pair of wings through the miracle of 
trust, and the one who was weighted down "will soar 
on wings like eagles." Isa 40:31

Reader, there is something to back up these really
ridiculous claims. King David wrote Psalm 23 when
he was exiled from Jerusalem because his very own
son had betrayed him. It seems to be a process for
most of us. David could not have written these words
at the beginning of his trials with Saul, but he learned
to lean on God and wrote psalms of pain which con-
tained words of praise. Psalm 23, written in the cruci-
ble of anguish is the best known psalm today.

The Lord IS MY Shepherd.
I shall not want...
