How do they do it? How do birds never fall off perches, even when sleeping? They have tendons down the back of their legs that extend into their feet. These tendons tighten as soon as a leg bends, gripping the branch securely. Ready to fly? Straighten the leg and the grip loosens and they are able to leap into the air.
I wish my grip to the Heavenly Father worked the same. When I’m bending off His chosen path for me, I’d like an automatic gripper. It usually doesn’t take long before I notice I’m not holding on as tight as I want. I grab hold once again and perch as close to Him as possible.
Joshua 23:8 “But you are to hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have until now.”
