Spiritual Digest for the Day 15Oct2017

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, so the Lord alone led [the people of Israel], and there was no foreign god with [the people of Israel]” (Deuteronomy 32:11-12 NKJV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY When God stirs up the nest on your comfort, it is to make you stronger and lead you to your Promised Land. - Bayo Afolaranmi ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will be able to come out stronger when God “stirs up your nest”.

WHEN GOD STIRS UP YOUR NEST!

Dearly Beloved, WHEN GOD STIRS UP YOUR NEST! “As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, so the Lord alone led [the people of Israel], and there was no foreign god with [the people of Israel]” (Deuteronomy 32:11-12 NKJV). An eagle is a unique bird among other birds. Many lessons can be learnt from its uniqueness. One of such lessons is its deliberate stirring of the nest where it keeps its chicks (or young ones) in order to teach them how to fly and be stronger. An eagle always builds its nest on tall trees or high cliffs where enemies cannot easily reach. The eagle that has been taking good care of its chicks for some time in this safe and comfortable nest would without warning stir up the nest thereby making the chicks to be in danger of falling from the high place. As the chicks try to fly, the eagle would hover over the chicks and spread its wings to catch them and carry them on its pinions to safety. This is repeated on several occasions till the chicks could fly perfectly on their own to safety without the help of the mother eagle. In the Song of Moses as Moses was about leaving the people of Israel after forty years of leading them to the verge of the Promised Land, he compared the dealing of God with the people of Israel to the stirring of nest of an eagle so that the people of Israel would be able to be strong (see Deuteronomy 1:31; 32:11). He recounted how God had been with the people of Israel in the wilderness for forty years, leading them, encircling them, instructing them, keeping them as the apple of His eye, protecting them, feeding them, and taking them to where they were about to enter the Promised Land. The people of Israel did not know that God was training them to become a strong and formidable nation when they were passing through the wilderness experience. Are you also wondering why God is stirring up the nest on your comfort? Why would He allow you to face the difficulties you have presently? Why can He not make everything rousing for you? Why is He allowing the righteous to suffer? He is stirring up your nest so that you will become stronger. Job testified of God: “But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold” (Job 23:10 NKJV). Apostle Peter considered this test as something done by fire (see 1 Peter 1:7). In spite of this, it is to bring “praise, honor, and glory” to God. As the eagle is always with its chicks during and after the stirring up of the nest, and even taking the chicks to safety, so also the Lord is with us (see Hebrews 13:5). He will hover over you, carry you on His wings, and lead you to your Promised Land (see Psalm 36:7; 61:4; 63:7; 91:4). So, when God stirs up your nest, it is to make you stronger. In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Pray that you will be able to come out stronger when God “stirs up your nest”.
