Many of you may know these words from the popular gospel song entitled "Two Wings," by The Christianaires. The concept of the song is that if they had the ability they would fly away to escape the troubles of this world. Southwest Airlines even picked up on this concept. You know they show commercials of individuals who find themselves in difficult situations and then they posed the question wanna get away?
How many times in your life have you had moments where you wanted to just get away? I mean everything that could go wrong goes wrong. There no peace all around you and you think to yourself I just want to get away from it all. This is how the Psalmist felt in the 55th division of Psalms. The Psalmist wrote in the six verse, "Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest!" The Psalmist was asking the Lord for deliverance from his enemies. He was being oppressed by his enemies and was hated by all he came in contact with. He had a thought like many of us if I had two wings I would fly away and the world couldn't do him anyway harm!
Remember the Bible is equipped to handle every situation you go through! If you keep reading the 55th Psalm you will find that he was comforted by his trust in God. Do you trust him?
