Born to Fly

by on September 23, 2011

One day a prairie chicken found an egg and sat on it until it hatched. Unknown to the prairie chicken, the egg was an eagle egg, abandoned for some reason. That’s how an eagle came to be born into a family of prairie chickens.

While the eagle is the greatest of all birds, soaring above the heights with grace and ease, the prairie chicken doesn’t even know how to fly. In fact, prairie chickens are so lowly, all they eat is garbage.

Predictably, the little egg, being raised in a family of prairie chickens, thought he was a prairie chicken. He walked around, ate garbage, and clucked like a prairie chicken.

One day he looked up to see a majestic bald eagle soar through the air, dipping and turning. When he asked his family what it was, they responded, “It’s an eagle. But you could never be like that because you are just a prairie chicken.” Then they returned to pecking the garbage.

The eagle spent his whole like looking up at eagles, longing to join them among the clouds. It never once occurred to him to lift his wings and try to fly. The eagle died thinking he was just a prairie chicken.

YOU WERE BORN TO FLY! But some of you think and act like prairie chickens because the world keeps telling you that’s what you are. But the Word tells you that God created you, “…a little lower than the angels…” (Psalm 8, Hebrews 2:7)

Do you ever feel like there’s something more to life than what you are experiencing? LOOK UP!! Lift your wings and fly! God wants you to be all that you were created to be.

The apostle Peter writes in 1 Peter 1:14, “As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. ” – In other words, “Stop living like eagles that think they are prairie chickens!!”

You are no longer ignorant. You know who and what you are. You are born again through the precious Blood of Jesus. Now live that way! Spread your wings and fly!

Have a blessed weekend!

Expect a Miracle,
