“And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them” (Deuteronomy 28:13).Text — Deuteronomy 28:9-15
Eagles are known for their high altitude flights. They use rising air currents to soar high up in the skies. Depending on the species of the eagle, they can reach a height of between 10,000 and 20,000 feet above sea level. From these vantage points, their keen eye sights allow them to scout for prey far below. Eagles can also fly at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. They are not always found on the ground but above only.
The promise of God to His children is that they should be above only. To be above only is to be the best in all our endeavours. It is to excel beyond our equals. It is to achieve feats that appear seemingly impossible to average youths. However, to be above only, there is need for a youth to work hard and smart. He must go the extra mile by studying while others are sleeping; reading while others are roaming about and planning while others are playing. Furthermore, to be above only youths must be born again, obey God’s Word and pray to Him for success.
Work hard and smart
Aim at the top in all you do.
Prayer for today
Dear Lord, make me the head and not the tail.
