The Hawk

If you haven't read my blog from yesterday, read it before you read this one.

In January, I saw a hawk sitting on a small road sign a few feet from my car with its wings spread out right there in the middle of the city. This got my attention. Then, over the next couple of days, I saw two more hawks. For some reason, I thought that the Lord was trying to tell me something.

I looked up "hawk" in my Bible concordance and I couldn't find anything about it. I looked up "hawks" online and found out that they eat an average of 2 snakes every 2 days. I read an eye witness account of a hawk swooping down and grabbing a snake in its talons.

Then, I began reading my Beth Moore "A Woman's Heart" Bible lesson for the day. Everyday, the study has one verse that we focus on. Guess what the verse was for that particular day? Psalm 91:4 "He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." My study also led me to these scriptures: Psalm 17:8, Psalm 63:7, and Matthew 23:37. They all refer to His wings being our refuge.

I felt as if the Lord was saying that He was going to take care of the snakes. As long as we stay in the shadow of His wings, we would have His protection...
