The Eagle Story.

When you are living life in a surrendered to Yeshua mode, then life is much like an eagle in flight.  The eagle soars on the currents of the wind, gracefully and regally.  The eagle flies high above the earth.  An eagle soaring like that is beautiful to behold.

We are like that.  Jesus tells us to be yoked with him and goes on to say that when we take upon ourselves his yoke, then our burden will be light.  He reminds us to come to him when we are weary and heavy laden and he himself will give us rest.  An eagle soaring on the air currents is   flying and yet at rest.

God showed me a picture last night.   Picture an eagle soaring alone high above the earth.  The things on earth are still occurring, but the eagle now has God’s perspective for he is above it.  Also the eagle is using very little energy to be able to soar.  For the eagle is resting on the air currents.  Air is invisible. But we can see the effects of it on an eagle's flight.  The eagle goes where the air current directs it. When we are resting on or in Yeshua, we are like that eagle.  Life will flow.  Yes, situations will come, some of them at times quite awful, but we can be at perfect peace and our soul and spirit can be at rest.  When we remember to relax and flow with God. 

Wind is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. We can not actually see the Holy Spirit and he blows where HE will.   But just like we can see the eagle in flight, see in the eagle’s flight the effect of the wind, so also can we see reflected in our own life and the lives of others the effect of resting on and in Yeshua.

In the picture, the eagle suddenly began to fall.  God showed me that the eagle had forgotten to remember why and how he was able to  soar.  So often we forget that it is God himself who gives us life.  It is the mercy and grace of God that sustains our life.  It is when we rest in him, on the sure and certain knowledge of who he is and how intimate his love for us is that we can be at perfect peace no matter what.  At times we need to remember that.  But when we fall, God will come to us, just like a mama eagle will come to the rescue of her eaglet.  All we need to do is cry out to him and remember yet again, that which we know.  He is our provision.  He is all we need.  He loves us.  And just like the mama eagle is aware of her baby, our Father is constantly aware of us.  And he will come and lift us up again and again so that we may soar like an eagle.  Soaring on the wings of pure love, soaring and resting in him.

God rescues us.
Exodus 19:4
You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself.

He guards us and protects us.
Deuteronomy 32:11
As an eagle that stirs up her nest, that flutters over her young, He spread abroad His wings and He took them, He bore them on His pinions.

He will satisfy our souls deepest longings.
Psalm 103:5
Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

God causes us to live like an eagle in flight.
Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

He will give us rest.
Matthew 11:29
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest ( relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.

Beloved, yes, when you are at rest in Me, then life takes much less effort.  When you trying to do things on or in your own strength, they you will become weary.  But know this, My beloved ones, I will never leave you alone or forsake you. You ARE continually in my sight.  If you decide to do life on your own, I will allow you to do so.  But I will not abandon you.  As soon as you realize what you are doing and cry out to Me, I will come and I will bear you up, on my wings and place you back into the “air currents” where you will flow and live and move and have your very being, “in Me”.
Truly I am as loyal and as fierce as the best eagle.  And my provision is better than the best air current. 
Come to me , My Beloved ones and receive ALL that you need.  For you are mine and I am yours.
