Found your wings yet?
How that in a great trial of affliction, the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded… 2 Corinthians 8:2
A man watched a butterfly trying to emerge from a cocoon. Thinking 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 sad,” you say. You’re right—God designed a plan for butterflies. The struggle to break free builds the strength they will need to fly.
God doesn’t want you to live weakly and die feebly. He wants you to grow and mature.
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.
