Why We Need Toucans

The Best of Elisha Vision Commentary – reprinted from June 17, 2011

I was reading a really horribly twisted article on the Jerusalem Post this morning which I suggest you read, to understand people who try to solve Israel’s problems without Yehovah God. It includes mockery of Glen Beck and his Jerusalem rally in August. The writer also manages to attack Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee along with other American and Israeli conservatives. He even manages to skewer several godly pastors both living and dead.

There is a mantra of the godless left that says “right-wing” Christians and Jews hate Muslims. This is a lie. Jesus died for Muslims, and God calls them to repentance as He does for all people. God loves people and desires that they choose life in Him. Therefore, we love Muslim people as God does. However, the ideology and religious doctrine of Islam is paganism. It denies that God is a Father and that Jesus is His Son Who died on the cross to save whosoever will come to Him.

So, why do we need toucans? After reading the article, I stared at my computer background which today is the toucan. I just started worshiping the glorious beauty and diversity of our Creator. Could the world get by without that one specie of tropical bird? Probably yes. Yet, God in His infinite wisdom may have just decided one day: “Wouldn’t it be cool to have at least one of my birds with an enormous yellow and orange beak with stark black and white feathers?” Well, if that is what God was thinking, I agree. Even the flight of the toucan is cool. Because of the disproportionate weight of his prize beak, a toucan has to work hard to gain altitude and then falls as he glides, pumps up to heights again, only to fall again as he glides.

Somehow I think life is a bit like a toucan with our own ups and downs, but God is with us! We have a place in His purpose that is uniquely ours. Don’t ever tire of pumping up your altitude in the Holy Spirit, the glide is worth it.

But those who wait on Yehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
