But they who wait for 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.
A few days ago i was reading an article about eagles and their ability to detect a storm approaching long before it breaks. An eagle will fly to a high point for shelter and then set its wings appropriately so that when the winds come it will be lifted above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is safe above; it doesn’t escape the storm but it uses it to lift it higher. This is an amazing picture of how we too as Christians must rise above the storm. By setting our hearts and our minds on Christ Jesus we can trust in a greater Sustainer and a greater Power who will allow us to soar through the storm. This can be a painful process… waiting on the Lord is never easy but it is necessary for spiritual growth. If we lay everything at our creators feet with trust an endurance, he will keep his promises and we WILL soar like eagles, we WILL run and never grow weary,and we WILL walk and not grow faint.
