Common Swift (Apus apus) by Ian
The foot shares the duties of locomotion with the wing.
Birds with highly developed wings have poor feet.
The swallow, an aerial bird, is an example.
The chimney swift has a tiny foot, but enormously developed wings,
and if placed on a flat surface is unable even to support itself.
All aquatic and terrestrial birds have excellently developed feet.
The loon is so thoroughly aquatic that it cannot walk on land
without the support of its breast and wings.
The sea snipe has a foot especially fitted for swimming,
and can be found a few hundred miles
off the Atlantic coast in flocks of hundreds of thousands,
perfectly at home in the water.
Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) by Ray
The foot is generally related to the length of the neck.
In securing prey the foot also plays an important part.
The great horned owl and the duck hawk
have enormous grasping power in their claws.
In grouse or partridge a horny,
fringe-like growth appears on the toes late in the fall,
serving as a sort of snowshoe during the winter,
by which the bird is enabled
to walk on the surface of the snow.
This growth is shed in the spring….
Your feet may feel weak and weary,
but, still GOD wants our feet to stand high…
That is why the Bible says,
He maketh his feet like hinds` [feet], And setteth me upon my high places. (2 Samuel 22:34 KJV)
And HE also says,
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot. (Psalm 91:13)
God takes care of our feet even in our
going out and coming in…
They shall bear thee up in their hands, Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. (Psalm91:12)..
No mater how big or small,
How beautiful are thy FEET in sandals, (Song of Solomon 7:1 KJV)
does HE means to say that, our feet look beautiful only with sandals?
What sort of sandals are we wearing?
Do we have the sandal of preparation of the gospel of peace?
and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (Ephesians 6:15)
Our feet can’t be more beautiful or more purpose full
without the sandal of preparation..
GOD has given us feet for a divine purpose..
Where are our feet planted?
JESUS is returning soon and HE is in need of feet
that can take the Gospel to the ends of the earth..
Are you ready?
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! (Isaiah 52:7)
Have a blessed day!
Your’s in YESHUA,
