Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their
strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and
not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
always told people that out of all birds, the Lord loves the Eagle the
most. Why? Well, the Eagle is the most favored bird. When you look at
God’s favor, it is always directed at those He loves. For example the
Lord loves the righteous – Psalms 33:5, and surrounds them with favor –
Psalm 5:12. Because of His love for the Eagle, He ensured that out all
the birds, only the Eagle is permitted to fly close to the sun. When we
talk of flying close to the sun, we are talking real close. While flying
around and hunting, debris gathers around the Eagle and this weighs it
down. To get rid of th
is debris, the
Eagle flies so close to the sun so that the heat from the sun melts the
debris weighing it down. Also from time to time the Eagle goes so close
to the sun so that the rays and heat from the sun can burn off the films
that develops over its eyes and its vision is renewed .Any other bird
that tries to go as close to the sun as the Eagle will either lose its
eyes sight or something worse will happen. Asides flying close to the
sun, the Eagle flies at an altitude that other bird can only dream of.
Proverbs 23:5 says the Eagle soars to the heavens. While normal birds
lay their nest on trees, according to Job 39:27-28 the Eagle lays its
nest on very high mountains where no prey can reach.
the Lord love this breed of bird specially? How come they are the only
bird enjoying special favors? Firstly, the eagle does not touch dead
animals or unclean things. The vulture eats anything but the Eagle will
never go near dirty thing or unclean thing. Secondly, the Eagle depends
on the wind to soar. Once the Eagle sees a storm coming from afar
instead of running like other birds it simply uses the wind of the storm
to lift itself high above the storm. Brethren anyone who wants to enjoy
special favors from God must do away with unclean things i.e. sin.
Anyone who wants to operate at altitude others can only dream off must
depend on the Wind which is the Holy Spirit according to John 3:8.
Without these two, enjoying favors will be impossible, and also
achieving what people can only dream off will be impossible too. Daniel
excelled so much in His endeavor because the Holy Spirit was operating
at full blast in his life. The bible records in Daniel 6:3 that Daniel
distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an
excellent Spirit was in him.
Prayer Point: Father, fill me with the Holy Spirit that i might be able to fulfill destiny.
