I was just reading one of my journals and came across this experience that I had on May 18, 2016, and just had to share it with you. It was an awesome experience.
"This morning while I was driving west on Lider road, I had just came down the hill and was headed through the Black Jack valley when a majestic bald eagle flew out of a fir tree to my right and crossed over Lider right in front of me. It was high enough that I would not have hit it, but it gave me a great view of that huge bird. For a split second, I wondered why it was swooping across the road. I figured it was just moving to a better location or had seen a yummy rodent in the field on my left. But then, I saw a tiny bird fly right behind the eagle. That tiny little bird had chased away the huge eagle. A bird no bigger than three inches long, had the boldness that was larger than the eighteen inch eagle that was apparently threatening the tiny bird's nest.
The Holy Spirit immediately taught me a lesson: Christians are like that tiny bird and Satan is like the giant eagle. He is big and powerful and deadly, but we can be brave and bold. For even though we are small and weak, we are mighty and fierce when we trust in God and allow Him to use us to do what is right. We don't need to sit or hid or cower in fear because of the appearance of the enemy. We can attack and he will flee just like the eagle fled from the tiny little bird.
James 4:15 says, "Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
