What a magnificent display are the feathers and wings of the flamingo. If I am covered with these feather and sheltered by these wings, I am certainly in a beautiful place. When these coverings are accompanied by Our Lord's faithful promises, my security is sure. The same can be said for the feathers and wings of the eagle, the cardinal, the blue jay, and the owl, to name just a few. Once again, I must point out the great variety in God's creation. He didn't scrimp in any way. In fact the word "splurge" seems to fit pretty well in describing God's creative activity. I am awed and amazed by God's creation, but I am more awed and amazed that the Creator, Jesus, who created it all, knows my name and likes to hear my voice. My God, how great thou art!
"He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection." (NLT)
The Shelter of His Feathers and Wings
