It is a well known fact that an eagle can fly long distances and that sounds impressive. Nevertheless, an eagle can also encounter storms. It is known that when an eagle approaches a storm, it locks its wings and dives right into the storm. At that moment the storm carries the eagle until the winds die off. When it is finally calm the eagle finds a place to rest for a period of time until it has renewed its strength.
Now, after the storm has past the eagle rests for as long as it needs to until it is ready to continues on its journey. The prophet Isaiah must have known a great deal about eagles as he shared words of wisdom with the people. In Isaiah 40: 31 the Bibles says, “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 (KJV). What we see here is that an eagle is good at conserving energy so that it can successfully deal with its flight circumstances.
In our lives we deal with storms and other circumstances of life that require a lot of spiritual energy. However, only Jesus can help us through those storms of life. It is in Jesus where we find rest. An eagle needs rest to renew its strength after facing a storm; we also need help when we face difficult circumstances that are refered to as storms of life.
There is a spiritual journey meant for all of us therefore we need strength to make it to our destination. In Matthew 11:28 Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (KJV). Rest is found in Jesus Christ and it renews spiritual strength. Eagles understand this principle of renewing strength and they use it to mount up with wings to heights above the mountains of life.
If you really want rest, give your life to Jesus and he will give you rest. This is what will renew your life. If you are a believer, wait upon the Lord and he will renew your strength. That is what will help you to mount up with wings the way eagles do it. Storms are not meant to stop you. You are meant to overcome them in Jesus name.
