When you’re grounded without the ability to fly, you scurry around trying to fix your wings and control the flight conditions. You’re sitting in despair, wondering how things got to be this way. Did you miss the warning signs? Did you go off course and ignore God’s leading? You beat yourself up for the decisions you made, forgetting you were doing the best you could in the moment. You start to blame yourself for your inability to fly, asking God for perfect wings to lift you out of this misery. The ones He gave you are broken and must be unusable. Unless they’re not, and they’re the exact wings God always meant for you to have. God doesn’t require perfect wings for flight. He is the doer of the impossible: breathing life into dirt, resurrecting dead things, and helping broken wings to soar. Remember it’s His power, not your perfection, that brings flight to your life.
“But this beautiful treasure is contained in us—cracked pots made of earth and clay—so that the transcendent character of this power will be clearly seen as coming from God and not from us.” 2 Cor. 4:7 VOICE
