TOPIC: THE CREATIVE POWER OF THE WAY-MAKING GOD
SCRIPTURE: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. Proverbs 30:19
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If God could make an ordinary bird not to miss its way, He will make you not to miss direction in life.
The Scriptures make it clear that God created the whole world and all creatures with His way-making mentality. In other words, throughout creation, God showed that He is the Way-Maker through the works of His Hands. It is, therefore, important to look at the characteristics of some creatures in order to appreciate the Way-making Power of God.
Now, one example of the creatures of God that demonstrates the Way-making power of God is the eagle. The Eagle can sit on a rock, observe the wind current and fly several kilometres in the sky without missing direction because it has thermo-receptors under its wings. The reason the eagle can strategically fly like this with accuracy is because the Creator wired His way-making or way-finding capacity inside it.
The domestic pigeon is another example. This bird has a unique characteristic. If you blindfold it and carry it from one location to another different and distant location, when you remove the blindfold, it would fly back to where it was taken from. This is because the Way-making God wired in its brain radar, compass or navigational equipment that has the capacity to identify locations without seeing or missing its way.
Beloved, the lesson is, if God could do this for birds whose lives or death mean nothing to anyone, to showcase His power and greatness, would He not do greater and better things for you? If God could make an ordinary bird not to miss its way, He will make you not to miss direction in life, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: If God could make an ordinary bird not to miss its way, He will make you not to miss direction in life.
