Soar on wings like eagles…
An eagle has learned to rest his wings on the updraft that will take him higher. From a great height the eagle can see with precision that which it is hunting for. By resting its wings until the last moment, an eagle dives with great speed upon its target.
At the last moment the skilled wings are poised to slow its descent and the hungry bird is satisfied with its prey.
Waiting on God is likened to a soaring eagle. The wind does most of the work to lift the bird to great heights where it can see a great distance. There are many times in life when we need a higher view of our surroundings and circumstance. Pity an eagle that has to walk along the ground looking for its next meal. It will settle for a diet of bugs or road kill instead of fresh meat.
Waiting on God allows us to be lifted above by the wind of God’s Spirit. God wants us to share the view from above.
