Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 17th November 2021 Wednesday Message

TOPIC: Perspective

SCRIPTURE: “They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

MESSAGE

Birds overcome the lower law of gravity by the higher law of flight. And what is true for birds is true for the soul. Souls that soar on wings like eagles overcome the lower law of sin and death. Hannah Whitall Smith writes, “The ‘law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus’ must necessarily be a higher and more dominant law than the law of sin and death; therefore, the soul that has mounted into this upper region of the life in Christ cannot fail to conquer and triumph.” *1

Why is it then that so many Christians fail to conquer? Perhaps it’s because we fail to mount up and soar with wings and choose instead to live on the same low level as our trials. Little wonder we blunder when the battleground we choose is on an earthly plane. Christians are powerless there; that is unless they shift to a higher battleground and choose weapons of warfare that are spiritual.

What we need is perspective. We need to see what birds see. When, like eagles, we soar on wings, trials look extraordinarily different. When viewed from their own level, trials look like impassable walls, but when viewed from above, the wall appears as a thin line, something easily overcome.

You have wings and you don’t need stronger, better ones. You don’t need more wings or larger ones. Also, You possess all that you need to gain a heavenly perspective on your trials and thereby overcome.

A passive or inactive trust in the Lord won’t do. To use your wings is to actively trust in God.

Lord, I don’t want to trust you in theory or in word only. I want my trust in you to be as active and as strenuous as “mounting up with wings.” As I do, thank you for the higher, heavenly perspective you give me over my trials.
