Do you know Eagles are a kind of special bird that have unique characteristics?
Eagles Love the Storm: Eagles are the only birds that love the storm. When all other birds try to flee from the storm and hide its fierceness, eagles fly into it and will use the wind of the storm to rise higher in a matter of seconds. They use the pressure of the storm to glide higher without having to use their own energy.
Eagles Do Not Eat Dead Things: Eagles never consume dead things, but vultures do. Eagles can fly up to an altitude of 10,000 feet, but they are able to swiftly land on the ground.
Eagles have a strong vision: Eagles have strong vision, so they can identify their prey and focus on it until they get it. At the same time, an eagle can see its enemy from afar, such as snakes trying to sneak in to its nest to steal its egg or to kill its young. Though eagles build their nests on high rocks and places, snakes have a tendency and ability to climb to them. But the strong vision of eagles keeps the enemies away from its nest.
Eagles Train Their Children to Maturity: Mother eagles must take good care of their young to give them the strength to fly. Just as mother eagles must usher their chicks out of the nest. When it is time to learn to fly, the mother eagle throws the Eaglet from a height and let it fall until the Eaglet flaps its wings ready to fly, this is done over and over again until the eaglet begins to fly also.
Eagles Retire Until New Feathers Grow: When eagles get older and weak because of worn out feathers, which slows down flight speed and maneuvers, the eagles retire away in the rocks and will pluck all their old feathers until it is completely bare. It waits until a new set of feather grows and comes out of his body. It stays in the hiding place until all the new feathers comes back to make it fly dynamically and royally again without much effort or toil.
The Bible describes a Christian as an eagle because of the awesome features of eagles. God wants to always depend on him without having to struggle in life. Just like an eagle when in the midst of a storm do not struggle to fly though it has great flying abilities; instead it just rests and allow the wind to carry it. It opens up his wings and just allow itself to fly.
It is not about the challenges or situation you have found yourself in, it is about he who is with you. As a child of God, we rule the situations or circumstance not the other way round. How do we do this by living a life of absolute trust in God who helps and strengthens us always.
The vision power of the eagle cannot be overemphasized; the eagle sees far and could determine what right action to take. He can identify its prey and focus on ensuring it get it without missing it. Even when it misses its target, he does not give up at it. For us as a child of God it is as we behold the word of God that we see clearly into what God desires and his promises for us.
When the Spirit of God opens our eyes to see clearly into God’s will for our lives, we become changed and transformed. We are able to purse the will of God without being tired or getting frustrated about. We run like an eagle until we achieve our destiny in life. The light of God’s word envisions us to do all that we need to do in life.
Eagles only eat fresh things; they are not attracted to dead things one bit and that is why they do well. Have you ever thought of a daily refreshing time in God’s presence, a life changed and transformed because he is always connected to do the Fathers will as instructed?
Every believer must pursue a personal relationship with God, receiving strength daily instructions from Him just as getting an update is important for your device to work properly, a life yielded to the Father is the key to staying relevant in life and ministry. God gives the best updates and the only way to get them is by constant and regular fellowship with the father that opens us up to a live dedicated to the Father’s will and to run with it.
The way eagles train their eaglets to fly is beautiful but scary at first because when the Mother Eagle sees it that it is time for the eaglet to fly, he allows the eaglet to fall from a height until the baby eagle flaps his wings and ready to fly too. It is unlike God to leave us the way we are so that we won’t feel bad about him. God in his wisdom brings situations and circumstance to us to test our faith and build us up until we begin to exercise our faith in him just like the eaglet exercise his wings in flying.
We my never know what great potential is on the inside of us if we do not use them in situations which we found ourselves. God gave us the ability to love; he made us love beings by the reason of who he is. Therefore, we can love but we cannot do that by just being alone, it is as we relate with people, we exercise that ability to love. Of course, this ability is already in us but we allow it grow as we exercise it. This also applies to our walk of faith and other gifts God has given to us. As we do this, we mature better and we grow in it on a daily basis.
The Eagle retires to re-fires; whenever the eagle is getting older and weak and some of its feathers begins to fall of it. The eagle goes to hide itself in the rock where it plucks off its feathers and wait for it to grow back again. After the eagles’ feather had grown back, it becomes more stronger and fresher. Many Christian do not understand the importance of meditation on the word.
They have become use to a hurry-go life that makes a child of God to lose relevance. Jesus when he was here on earth took his time to always separate himself from people to meditate. It is as we stay on the word through the act of meditation that we see the word of God in pictures. This goes beyond just thinking. It is as we meditate, speak and do the word that our lives are changed and transformed. Glory to God.
