Soar like an eagle.

Isaiah 40:31 – but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Many have said throughout life that we should soar like an eagle to succeed. In the Bible there’s reference as noted in this verse hope in the lord …and you shall soar like an eagle.

Why like an eagle?

What’s so special about an eagle?

Why not like a chicken? Why not like a Lion? Or an Ox? Or Bear? Why an eagle?

Could it be the limitless power the eagle has when it flies? They can fly to great heights. Highly respected and valued. Fierce predators.  They are known as birds of prey, eagles have very large, hooked beaks for ripping flesh from their prey, strong, muscular legs, keen eyesight and powerful talons. The beak is typically heavier than that of other birds of prey.

Now comparing these traits of an eagle and how having hope in the lord can give you strength to soar like an eagle…. makes you wonder.

Should we be spiritually strong like an eagle. Be spiritually fierce, spiritually strong, spiritually keen eyesight, spiritually powerful talons and be able to spiritually rip apart the prey (being spiritually grounded to defeat the enemy.

Wow. After looking at it this way… I have a higher respect for eagles. I want my relationship with god to be as strong as my description above. To be able to fly limitless across the sky and soar. To be able to soar spiritually. To grow limitlessly with god.
Father God I ask you to be strong and fierce (spiritually) like an eagle. To fly new heights and have this limitless relationship with you.  Father I ask for you to guide me as I reach new heights. To grow closer with you. To soar like an eagle. Amen.
