An article in National Geographic several years ago
provided a penetrating picture of God's wings.
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park,
forest rangers began their trek up a 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 from under their dead mother's wings.
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 singed her small body,
the mother had remained steadfast.
Because she had been willing to die,
those under the cover of her wings would live.

"He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under His wings shalt thou trust" (Ps 91:4).

Learn to experience the warmth and protection
of life beneath the wings of the Almighty.
