Let him that is taught in the word 

communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

Galatians 6:6 KJV

"Don't be Afraid of Flying High."
November 26, 2023


Good morning, Brothers and Sisters! Today's devotional is based on the metaphor of the ravens. I want to begin by sharing a personal story with you all. 

I was outside one morning enjoying the summer sunshine and slight breeze and reading a book, when I happened to look up and I saw a flock of ravens in the sky, soaring and gliding in the wind. They seemed so carefree and content, that I couldn't help but feel a bit envious of them. I kept watching them eventually stopped to read some more. But after a bit I looked back up at the sky and suddenly noticed something amazing - the ravens had disappeared. I looked around for a minute before realizing that they hadn't gone anywhere, 
they had just blended into the sky. That's when it hit me - sometimes the greatest freedom we can find is within ourselves.

This idea of freedom is at the heart of our sermon today on the metaphor of the ravens. There are three key ideas I'd like to share with you today about how we can find freedom in our lives. 

First, we must remember that God is with us at all times - even when we don't feel His presence. In 1 Kings 17:4-6, God sends ravens to feed Elijah during a time of famine. He doesn't just provide for Elijah, but also for the ravens. This story reminds us that God will always be with us, no matter what circumstances we may find ourselves in. We can have faith that He will provide for us, just as He provided for Elijah and the ravens. 

Second, we must remember to trust ourselves and our own inner strength. In Psalms 147:9-10, it says: "He gives to the beasts their food, and to the young ravens that call upon Him." Here, God is telling us that even the ravens have the strength to call upon Him when they need help. Just like the ravens, we too have our own inner strength and wisdom that we can draw upon in times of need. We must learn to trust ourselves and our own abilities. 

Finally, we must remember to keep moving forward in life, no matter what obstacles may come our way. Just like the ravens, we must learn to soar and glide above our troubles. We must learn to keep going even when things seem impossible. In Isaiah 40:31 it says: "But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." This verse reminds us that when we trust in God and keep moving forward, we will find strength to fly like eagles - just like the ravens. 

Today's devotional reminds us that freedom can be found within ourselves, if we trust in God and remember to keep moving forward. As James 1:12 tells us: "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him." So, Brothers and Sisters, don't be afraid of flying high - freedom awaits you if you keep moving forward with faith!
