God comes to man most powerfully in the midst of his darkest hours and biggest challenges, calling him to trim out his faith and fly into the wind. Verses what? Fragmenting or panicking in the midst of trials, choosing to act “pigeon” ending up planted comfortably on a ten-foot perch in a cage (looking goofy). The difference from flapping hard to stay aloft in the air versus soaring in a different dimension is knowing how your faith is designed to respond in the midst of some heavy winds. Just as gravity is necessary to experience life, so change and challenge are necessary for God’s Man to soar spiritually and experience growth through the Holy Spirit.
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline,) then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live? (>Hebrews 12: 7-9)
So, how about you? Are you ready to get off that perch and spread those wings? Your Father, through His Spirit, wants to say to you, “Could I have a word with you, son?”
