The Eagle

The Eagle
 

He sits perched on the very top branches of a high tree or a rocky crag–he sits perfectly still, but his eyes are searching the skies as huge storm clouds gather. He doesn’t move one feather until he feels the burst of wind against his breast He faces the oncoming gust, presses himself towards it. The storm is what the eagle uses to soar upward, and heavenward. Aloft, He has risen above the storm allowing the eagle to soar to new heights.

God wants me to “mount up with wings of an eagle.” He wants me to rise above the storms–to use the storms as my vehicle to climb still higher with Him. I press on by facing the winds of adversity, using them to soar ever higher, onward and heavenward.
It is when I mount up on those wings and come up higher that I can get the right perspective on our storm–His perspective!

When I am doubting the outcome of the situations that face me day by day I can rest in the One who says, “Who will you compare me to? Have you not heard, have you not seen, were you not told from the very beginning?” My times are in His hands and no one can thwart the hand of God. So, no matter how it “looks,” I just need to turn toward the adverse winds, counting on the lifter of my wings! No one can compare to my God! My way is not hidden from Him, He knows me and calls me by name! (thoughts from Isaiah)—Will you also choose to soar?

“Not looking backward, but forward, pressing onward and upward and heavenward.” Phil 3:13,14.

    Everyone needs to be reminded that He is with us, guiding us, holding us and loving us through every storm we encounter. THIS post was that reminder. Thank you, Pam. I loved it.

    How did I miss this post? It’s just what I needed today. I need to be able to fly above the world and look down at the big picture. God is already doing that. I just need to let Him lift me.
    Wonderful!
