An Animal Analogy

What I couldn’t take my eyes off were their feet.

Ezekiel 10:1-22

Reference: I looked, and I saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like topaz. (Ezekiel 10:9 NIV)

Explore: I’ve often used the analogy of someone being a chameleon, but the other day I actually saw one. I was watching a David Attenborough documentary and he showed how well these creatures hunt for prey.

With their changing skin colour and fast grabbing tongue, they are able to find a variety of insects to feast upon. But what I couldn’t take my eyes off were their feet.

A chameleon’s feet are fashioned in such a way that they grip the branches that they spend most of their time on. It reminded me again of God’s incredible creation and how he has formed each creature so well for its purpose.

Application: I often see things throughout the day that remind me of God. You only have to read a few of my blogs to realise how much I notice God in the everyday.

Ezekiel was given a great vision for the role that he was called to. And God communicates with us too, even if it isn’t in a grand vision.

If we keep our eyes fixed on Him, we will notice His voice in our every day and get a greater understanding of who He is calling us to be.

Prayer: Lord, may my ears and eyes be open to notice You. Help me to respond to Your call and connect all of my life into Your purpose. Amen.

Where have you seen God this week?
