I started this posting yesterday. I tried to understand what the author was saying, “Bearing the burden crushing weight actually give Christians wings.” Perhaps one way to explain this is, going thru our daily challenging lives, battling temptations, is good for us. It will help us mature.
So, what does “Descend from the crest” mean?
The dictionary definition of crest is:
A ridge, or similar projection on the head of a bird or other animal.
It can also mean the top line of a hill, mountain.
The author Cowman tells us that while David was enduring severe trial, he cried, “oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest” (Psalms 55:6) . And yet before he finished his meditation, he seems to have realized that his wish for wings was attainable, for then he said, “Cast your cares on the Lord (throw your worry to God) and he will sustain (keep you from falling) you (Psalms 55:22).
