Good morning everyone, and welcome to “Dee’s Thoughts”.
I was sitting outside the other morning and I saw this bird like an eagle just soaring along around and around seminally with no effort at all. I kept waiting for it to start flapping its wings but it never did, it was going along with the wind. I immediately thought of how this is a Spiritual lesson for all of us take notice of.
I thought of Isaiah 40:31 that says; “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint”. I think many of us as Christians do a lot of flapping our wings instead of soaring leisurely on the current of the Holy Spirit. In other words, we try too hard to fly in our own strength.
An eagle knows it can handle difficulty. It will rise above the storm locking its wings, allowing the strong wind to its advantage. It flies with purpose. He knows he was designed by God to fly.
The eagle welcomes the problems. Instead of struggling with the problem he just rises above it. In the storm of life—Christians should be seen rising above their circumstances, taking a position of a man and women of God.
Many of us know when we are running out of strength, the winds of life seem so heavy and we grow weary and feel like giving up. When we have lost our ability to climb higher and soar like an eagle, God sends the wind to lift us higher, taking us high above all of our problems and burdens. How do we get there? Not in our own effort, but surrendering our efforts to fly the way we want and let God show us how to soar instead.
Do not despair, God’s timing is always perfect.
