II Corinthians 4:3 “. . . .the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ . . .”
As Amos the Wise owl flew off into the sky, Enoch knew he was left with some serious thinking to do. Owls are wise, and this must be a voice to consider. He stretched his wings, looked up at Amos soaring in the sky and felt a sense of joy he had not felt before. It was impossible to describe the joy and it came as a surprise but it felt very good.
Enoch stretched his wings and began to move them up and down. He was surprised to discover that they actually lifted him off the ground. He had hopped around with the turkeys in low branches before but never really considered it truly flying. As he tested his wings in a clearing on the edge of the forest he began to take off along the ground and use his wings in a new way.
Biff, his turkey mentor had noticed that Enoch was not with the gang and went looking for him. This was a common occurrence as Enoch was always slow and falling behind the group. When Biff finally found Enoch at the edge of the woods and saw what he was doing, he let out a loud gobble, “ENOCH, stop that behavior right now. That is not how Turkey’s fly!” Enoch quickly pulled in his wings, plunked to the ground and apologized profusely to his dear leader Biff. He was sternly scolded for his misbehavior and promised to do better.
Something was happening in Enoch’s heart but the pull of the world was very strong. We must be aware that we live in a world where Satan is the prince. He has established systems and carefully crafted messages to keep us down. Everything Satan touches and influences turns us away from our God given potential and the intimate relationship He desires us to have with the Holy Spirit. Be aware; be alert to the Prince of this world and his deceptive schemes.
