How you can soar like the eagles
October 19, 2011
But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
I heard about a little eaglet who was injured when he fell out of his nest and was adopted by a group of turkeys. The eagle grew up thinking he was a turkey. He was raised by turkeys, lived with turkeys, and he acted like turkeys!
But one day, that eaglet discovered that he really was an eagle after all and that he was made to soar. So he began to flap his wings. And after struggling for some time, he finally caught wind, took off, and soared into the sky like he was always meant to do!
As a believer in Christ, God made you to soar in the heavenlies! He has blessed us in Christ Jesus in the heavenly places. Yet, so many believers I talk with today are stuck on the ground, like that little eaglet, and are content with living their lives among the turkeys instead of soaring with the eagles.
As you read this, maybe you feel like God wants to do something great in your life, but you just haven’t seen it happen yet. Perhaps it’s because you have yet to flap your wings and catch the life God wants for you.
If you want to soar, take the first step out in faith and trust God will raise you up!
INSTEAD OF LIVING YOUR LIFE ON THE GROUND, STEP OUT IN FAITH, ALLOW GOD TO LIFT YOU UP, AND SOAR IN THE HEAVENS!
