But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
The word of God is true; therefore, if things are not happening as He promised, then we need time for reflection. We need time to assess what’s going on around us and what things we are allowing to compromise our behaviors and beliefs.
Also, how much do we believe or do we doubt? The bottom-line is whether or not we’re able to soar and excel like an eagle, with strength, direction, wisdom, and ease—even a baby eagle has to find its wings to fly. The little one has to practice jumping from branches to branches. Attentively watching its parents waiting to utilize the wind to fly. Finally, watching in admiration while preparing for that one day when he or she can fly to the heavens.
Also, the force and power that resides within allows us to progress and improve without ceasing. We’ll run without getting weary and walk without fainting. It’s the Lord’s power that strengthens us.
The eagle says I can fly to the heavens, so why not? Let me catch the wind to conserve energy. This journey could end up being long, but I am equipped for the voyage, and the view is glorious. Why should I exert valuable resources when I don’t have to? Why should I fight opposing forces when I don’t have to?
When I can’t see because of the force of the wind blocking my journey, God has the second sight to see and guides the path. My pathway is now clear.
I live on higher ground and can see beyond what’s imaginable. Patience has allowed me to master the journey. The expert display of excellence during the hunt made me powerful beyond measure. Say it: I’m an eagle.
