“He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (the Bible, Isaiah 40:29-31)
Have you ever seen an eagle fly? It seems… effortless. An eagle “catches” the upward currents and soars more than it flies. Only the take-off requires real effort, then the eagle adjusts its trajectory to find, and then stay, in the current that carries it.
That’s what God calls you to do… fly like an eagle! Catch the current of the Holy Spirit and stay connected to this thermal wind of the Spirit. You too… make the effort to come into His presence, to take off, to enter into His courts!
The Bible tells us, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” (see Romans 8:14)
Come up higher, getting a bird’s-eye view of your situation, and allow the Holy Spirit (sometimes mentioned as a “wind” in the Bible) to carry you.
I invite you to pray with me today…“Lord, I stand on Your promises, on Your goodness, and on Your peace. I believe that Your Spirit makes me stronger than what I can expect, and I choose to trust You. Help me to take hold of and stay in the current of Your Holy Spirit and fly like an eagle above the circumstances. In Jesus’s name, amen.”
