Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:8-9; Isaiah 40:31
Published: “How do mosquitoes survive collisions with raindrops?” by Doyle Rice, USA TODAY, 6/4/12

USA Today reports that mosquitoes might hold the key to victory in modern warfare:

“Engineer David Hu of the Georgia Institute of Technology is taking a close look at mosquitoes, in order to understand how they can withstand the pounding of heavy rainfall. … Hu's research could help improve the design of insect-sized flying robots, which he says are currently being designed for use in military surveillance and search-and-rescue operations. …

“His research looked at how mosquitoes, which often thrive in rainy, windy regions … manage to survive impacts with raindrops during flight. ‘These raindrops are moving at a very high speed of about 22 mph, which is too fast for mosquitoes to dodge while in flight,’ he says.

“Though similar in size to mosquitoes, a single raindrop can weigh more than 50 times what a mosquito does. (In fact, a mosquito has the same ratio to a raindrop as a person would while trapped under the wheel of a car.) …

“The study authors found that a mosquito's strong exoskeleton and low mass . . . helps them survive collisions, causing raindrops to lose little momentum upon impact. …

“Likening it to the [martial arts] principle of Tai Chi, where the idea is to allow an opponents' force to go through or around you, Hu says the mosquito and the raindrop fall together for about 20 body lengths, and then release each other." By merging with and then riding the raindrop the force of the impact is reduced.


Application:

Do you ever feel like a mosquito in a tropical rainforest, with driving wind and rain assailing you from every direction? Life can seem that way. Every time you turn around you're bombarded by something much bigger and faster than you.

How do we survive these onslaughts? The mosquito offers us three clues:

  1. Rather than seeking refuge under a leaf, try putting "on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes" (Ephesians 6:11). The Word of God, obeyed, serves as our exoskeleton.
  2. Rather than searching for fulfillment in material things, try seeking "first his kingdom and his righteousness . . . " (Matthew 6:33). We reduce our "mass" by being content with what we have in Christ. The less we cling to in this life, the less we'll feel the impact of earthly losses.
  3. Rather than fighting your circumstances, try considering "it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds" (James 1:2). Survive the collisions of life by learning how to ride them out. Allow yourself to completely merge with your circumstances, accepting them as a part of God's work in your life.

Like the martial artist mosquito, apply the principle of Tai Chi and you, too, will become impervious to the falling rain drops of life.

“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8-9, NLT).

Scripture: Ephesians 6:16; James 1:3-5
Published: Redwood World

Redwood trees are among the largest, hardiest and oldest living things in the world. Growing upwards of 300 feet in height and living as long as 3000 years, they are natures epitome of endurance. Among their many unique characteristic is their uncanny ability to not only resist fire, but to actually use the fire to grow stronger.

“[The] bark can be pretty thick, well over two feet thick in the more mature examples. This gives the older trees a certain amount of protection from insects, but the main benefit is its fire retarding properties. Whereas a forest fire is pretty much a disaster for the majority of trees, it seems that the Giant Redwood will not just shrug off such events, they actually need them in order to prosper. Moderate fires will clear the ground of debris and competing plant life, and the rising heat dries and opens the ripe cones, shortly afterwards releasing many thousands of seeds onto the well-prepared ground below. The crowns of the mature tree will, in a forest environment, be a long way from the ground, thus protecting the branches and foliage from destruction in the fire."
 
Redwood World

Application:

How thick is your bark? Have you built up your spiritual defenses so that you can withstand the fiery trials?  This is necessary so that when (not if!) trials do come, you can use them to actually grow stronger. Don’t run from your trials. Let the fire do its work. Allow the “rising heat” to release seeds of faith “onto the well-prepared ground below.” Then you will grow tall, strong, and mature like a might Redwood of faith!

“In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one …” (Ephesians 6:16, ESV) …”knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (James 1:3-5).

Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-18, Joshua 1:9
Published: Matthew Lysiak, DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER, on www.NYDailyNews.com, November 10th 2010

The town of Ocean Breeze on Staten Island is being terrorized by marauding flocks of wild turkeys.  The problem all started about a decade ago when a local resident “released” her ten pet turkeys into the neighborhood.  They now number in excess of a hundred. Routinely tying up traffic as they stroll in the streets, the turkeys leave a trail of excrement in their wake, and often intimidate the locals with their aggressive behavior.  Seniors are afraid to wonder into their yards and even the young have found themselves fearful, with one woman having recently been trapped in her car by the forceful foul.  "It was straight out of 'Cujo,'" said dental assistant Gina Guaragno, 23. "I'm sitting in my car Facebooking on my phone when turkeys jumped on my windshield.  I screamed like I was being murdered. They just kept looking at me like it was their car. I felt trapped. I was so scared."  For now, a garden hose remains one’s best defense against the imposing birds, since city law protects wild turkeys from “hunting” or “harvesting.” 
Asks City Councilman James Oddo, "How are people supposed to have faith that their government can deal with problems like terrorism when we can't even deal with turkeys?"


Application:

Until Jesus returns to bring in a new order of law, we remain subject to a fallen world rife with terrors and intimidations.  Satan, as the “god of this age,” is (so to speak) a protected species.  We cannot utterly dispatch him.  That job will be left to Jesus Himself upon His return to establish His kingdom.  Until that time, we are left to fend off “the fiery darts” of the evil one.  We need to be properly prepared to meet them head on, rather than cowering in our cars or locking ourselves in our houses.  God has given us His armor (Ephesians 6:10-18):  “Finally, my brethren be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having gird your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” 


For the Christian, the universal weapon for facing our terrors, both large and small, is resting in the promises of the Word of God.   God is equally interested in the turkeys in our yard as He is the terrorists in our terminals.  Whatever our terrors, His answer is the same.  “Have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous? Do not be terrified and do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1 :9).  So put on your armor.  Don’t fight your terrors with a garden hose when you can fight them with the Word of God.
