Strengthening Your Wings

butterflyBIBLE MEDITATION
“How that in a great trial of affliction, the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.” 2 Corinthians 8:2

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT
A man watched a butterfly trying to emerge from a cocoon. Thinking that he would help, the man took his penknife and slit the side of the cocoon, and the butterfly flopped out. It lay there for a while, feebly beating its wings, then collapsed and died.

“How tragic,” you say, and you are right, because God had a plan for that butterfly. The struggle to break free built the strength he would need to fly. God doesn’t want you to live weakly and die feebly. He wants you to grow and mature.

ACTION POINT
Find the wings in your trial today. Strengthen them by the promises in God’s Word. Venture on new heights of freedom in Christ today.
