On the Wings of a Duck!
by   
11/13/2008 / Devotionals


It was a beautiful morning for a walk. After parking my little car close to the footpath that led to the river, I stepped onto the paved walkway and turned left toward my favourite place. The water was as smooth as silk. Its glass-like appearance mirrored the beauty of God's creation that surrounded it. The sun was warm and not a single cloud was in the sky. The air was filled with the aroma of damp earth after the rain. I breathed the fresh clean air deep into my lungs. The heavens were filled with the sound of a flock of birds; all the indications of a beautiful day filled my senses...


It came from under the bridge, flying very low. Every now and then it skimmed the surface so lightly that the tiniest ripple formed and died. Words of a well know song came to mind followed by the words of a verse.

"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint". Isaiah 40:31(NIV)

"Now that's strange. There's the wing of a snow white dove, and there are the wings of an eagle, but on the wings of a... duck!"

As I watched this homely but graceful, swift moving creature, I began to ponder just how awesome God really is. The power in those wings gave it the speed of an eagle, yet the gracefulness reminded me of a dove.

The charm of that duck brought me into a new understanding of beauty. God the designer and creator of the whole world made all things... well.
