Reversible Wings: Mystery or Creativity?

Got another interesting email today and thought I would share it. They seem to be doing a series on birds lately. Reversible Wings

Isaiah 31:5
Like birds flying about, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it; passing over, He will preserve it.

Sometimes incredible wonders pass right before our eyes but we are not equipped to see them. Take the humming bird, for an example.

Did you know that like the woodpecker, the humming bird has a tongue that wraps all the way around its head just under the skin? This feature is not really evident when you look at the humming bird. Nor is the wonderful way in which its wings move, so that it can hover, fly forwards or fly backwards.

High-speed photography has revealed some amazing secrets about the humming bird’s wings that cannot be noticed by the eye. All birds, except the humming bird, move their wings at the shoulder, elbow and wrist. Only the humming bird is capable of turning his wings upside down, so that when he hovers, both strokes of his wings beat the air in order to support him. This demonstrates that the humming bird is not a modification of the general bird design – as evolutionists tell us. Rather, the humming bird was created with unique features that enable it to make its living.

Likewise, when God tells us that He cares for those who are His through faith in Christ’s saving work, we don’t always see exactly how He is caring for us. But like the virtually invisible features of the humming bird, His care is nevertheless there.

Prayer: Dear Father in heaven, I thank You that You have made me Your own child through Jesus Christ. Help me to believe what You tell me in Your Word, even if I cannot see it all for myself. In my Savior’s Name. Amen.
