A Refuge Above



It got me thinking

If you look closely, that dark form in the near center is in fact a nest in this photo. High up some 25ft or so off the ground on the tree where I live. It got me thinking. That little bird probably no bigger than the palm of my hand being able to build a warm cozy nest high above from predators. Safe and sound for its days while it lives here. I say thats just incredible. Certainly someone was so wise and such an awesome Supreme Being certainly created that little fellow and directed it to just do as it should to live and survive in an awesome unrecognizable and overlooked way. I certainly believe to the God of the Bible. The God of Issac, Abraham and Jacob. The God of Israel. Seeing this nest reminded me of what David had to say about God. A praise of deliverance in 2 Samuel 22:2-4:

"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies."

The Life of David long ago in Israel certainly knew the Lord as the way we all ought to say such incredible poetic words of praise and worship. Looking at that nest sure sounds like what the Lord has done for that little bird and certainly will do for all that have that relationship w/ Jesus Christ Lord & Savior of a fallen species known as humanity.
