The most majestic bird, is the Eagle and the Bible backs this up repeatedly. The Eagle is used for reference in the Bible in 33 different Bible Verses.
The eagle is used as a representation of God’s protection (Psalm 91:1-4), Strength (Psalm 103:5), God’s rod against the Nations (Jeremiah 49:22).
Secrets of an Eagle
- The Eagle rides upon the wind
The wind is the Spirit of God. When wind blows, there is a change and nothing stays the same.
Acts 2:1 “When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force—no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building. Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks, and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them”.
Imagine how amazing life would be if we just let go and let God, where every move we make is dependent on the move of the Spirit of God. Every of our step is already orchestrated and hand crafted by God, we don’t have to stress but just move under the leading of the wind of the Spirit.
The wind is one of transformation, as the Holy Spirit moves and we ride on the wind we transform our lives into the will of God.
- The Eagle soars above the storm
Being a born again Christian, does not automatically translate into living a life without worries, problems or obstacles, but goes more like this, having an all-powerful God to lead you through them.
The storms of life will definitely come but like the eagle, we are equipped to rise above the storm.
Colossians 3:1 “So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from HIS perspective”.
In times of trouble, set your heart above the storm. Look beyond the present limitations and obstacles and keep your mind stayed on God and His purpose for your life.
- The Eagle renews its’ strength
The eagle when old, suffers from dim eyesight and its feathers and wings become heavy. To rejuvenate itself, the eagle flies up to the region of the sun, which burns away the mist over its eyes and burns off its old feathers. The eagle then plunges three times into water, and its youth is restored.
Isaiah 40: 31 “But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, they run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind”
In waiting on God with all your hopes and desires, He will strengthen you for the race. Relying on your human capacity alone cannot take you to the desired place God has in plan for you. But when you draw strength and hope from the Almighty, you begin to move at a supernatural pace, being favoured and empowered directly from the Source.
The question for today, would you rather be an Eagle or a Chicken?
