Would you like to come to know God better to the point that you can trust Him completely – like a small kid getting tossed high up in the air by his daddy, fully trusting that he will be caught safely in his loving arms?
When you feel of the majestic eagle, what comes to thoughts 1st? Never you picture it with its wings outstretched soaring high above creation?
Can you picture living higher up exactly where the clouds begin with practically no predator to endanger your existence? You hibernate at set intervals, for the duration of which you shed your old, and acquire new cells and dominate the sky with your arms outstretched as if in pure praise.
Do you know that is precisely what our heavenly father expects us to do and what His will is for our lives? Yes, and He has equipped us that way. Only we tend to envision ourselves as chickens, bound to the ground, unable to fly – let alone soar. This is what the Word of God has to say:
“He provides power to the faint, and to them that have no may possibly he increases strength. …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.” (psalm 40: 28-31)
If you have ever flown in a glider plane, you know what an exhilarating expertise that is! No noise no motor. You are lifted up by yet another energy source you can’t get up on your own. But, after aloft, you steer along with the updrafts. If you go counter to the drafts, well guess what? You go down very rapidly. But, as you find out to “really feel” those drafts and maneuver in sync with them, it really is like “whoopee”! Quiet, peaceful and in harmony with your surroundings, there is no effort on your component to do something but “go with the flow.”
That is what the eagle does. It allows itself to be lifted up by the prevailing wind currents. It does not attempt and go counter to it, or force its personal will upon it. It instinctively knows how to let go – and enjoy. Could that be our difficulty? The human thoughts has the tendency to “let me do it.” We have been so conditioned not to rely on others that we’ve become solely reliant on ourselves.
But, there is a Supply we CAN rely on. And, that is the secret to soaring. After we get to know who God is, how significantly He wants to walk with us, speak with us and guide us in each circumstance in our lives, then, and only then will we be prepared and in a position to let go and be held aloft by His everlasting arms.
The Book of Deuteronomy 33: 27 declares: “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
Despite the fact that it took a although, I learned to hang onto Him. At very first it felt like I was barely hanging on by my fingernails, but then slowly but surely faith start developing up in me till it exploded into a complete-blown trust in Him and total victory in my life.
How would you like to soar as an eagle, held up higher by no effort of your personal, feeling loved, guided, held tightly and flooded with peace? Come and join me up here. It really is wonderful to let go and let God!
