Eagles in a Storm
Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching
long before it breaks?
The eagle will fly to some
high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits,
it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it
above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is
soaring above it. The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply
uses the storm to lift it higher.
It rises on the winds that
bring the storm. When the storms of life come upon us - and all
of us will experience them - we can rise above them by setting
our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to
overcome us. We can allow God's power to lift us above them.
God enables us to ride the
winds of the storm that brings sickness, tragedy, failure and
disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.
Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down; it
is how we handle them.
The Bible speaks the same
- Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew
their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will
run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. God
- Ephesians 1:3 (KJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
- Ephesians 2:6 (KJV) And hath raised us up together, and
made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
God bless you and
On behalf of this generation,
Your friends in the service of Christ,
