We praise God for the skill of that pilot to bring Flight 1549 into that Hudson water and then without a life loss....yes, another praise-no lives lost. My mind quickly latched onto that announcers words "Standing on the wings"..."waiting". I went to Biblegateway.com and quickly looked up all the passages referencing "wings". The majority of these passages referenced being under God's wing or in the shelter of His wings. Protection. Comfort. Shelter. Security.
Deuteronomy 32:10-12 (New King James Version)
“He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.
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 him, And there was no foreign god with him."
So to God will carry us on His wings and bring us to safety, to peace, to healing.
Wait on Him. Stand on His wings. Trust. Believe. Praise.
