Where Eagles Soar


WHERE EAGLES SOAR
All of God's creatures including men seek shelter when there is a storm. No creature can withstand the fury of a raging storm. All except the eagle. As all the animals on air, land and sea seek shelter when a storm rages, the eagle actually welcomes the storm. He revels in it not by fighting it but by using its mighty wind to soar above the storm and reach far away places with nary an effort. High above the storm is calm air where the eagle love to soar and glide. Such is the outstanding qualities of this creature that God has use it to illustrate God's mighty provision and protection for man when the storms of life come crashing down on him. God says that He carries His children on eagle's wings and fly them through the raging storms of their lives and soar with them above the storm where they can glide in safety.

Think about that and picture it in your mind. God bringing you over and above the storms of your life to the relatively peaceful air above the storm where He carries you in peace and tranquility, borne by His mighty wings of love and protection. If we put our trust in Him, that is what He will do for us. He will shield us from the onslaught of the mightiest storms in our lives. He will bring us to the rarefied and tranquil air above the storm where we can glide in safety and joy. He promised us that no one can separate us from the love of Christ so long as we seek shelter on His wings.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8: 35-39) So let us soar with God like eagles above the storms of our lives.

Hi Eel Wind,
And how's my Christian brother? Still struggling with your students? Yes, we must always adopt the ways of the eagles and soar above the storms in our lives. We are all being attacked by the enemies. I could sense that Krystyna is still faced with gargantuan struggles. My prayers go with her. We must seek God's presence in our hearts and rely on His mighty Spirit to propel us above the storms of our lives. Thanks for your visit. Blessed Christmas and a joyful New Year to you all. God bless you always.

Hi Krystyna,
I know you are still struggling with your trials, whatever it may be. I will be praying for you my sister in Christ. We are all undergoing such trials that sometimes the world seems to be crumbling down on us. That's when we must embrace more the Lord and seek strength and peace in His presence. When we are weak, then we are strong because we are being carried by our God on His eagles wings far above all the cares and concerns of the earth. One day we will meet Him and He will wipe every tear in our eyes. Shalom my sister. God's presence and Spirit be with you always. God bless you always. A Blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you all. Say hello to your mama. I met her at Shiela's (Bluebirdy) blog. I could not comment on her because her blog is in Polish.

One of my favorite verse in the bible is found in Isaiah 40:31 "But those who hope in the Lord, will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles."
I love your post, Mila Avila. :)
