…they shall mount up with wings like eagles….

—Isaiah 40:31

I’ve discovered a couple of interesting things about eagles. For one thing, eagles don’t grovel in chicken coops. No! These marvelous birds were created to fly high.

And this is what today’s verse is telling you and me… God’s planned for us to take flight and to live supernaturally-empowered lives.

Let me give you a little example. I once heard a man ask his friend how he was doing. His friend replied, “I’m doing okay under the circumstances.” Here’s my point. We were made to soar above our circumstances! The apostle Paul put it this way, “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth”(Colossians 3:2).

Listen! Eagles can’t be bothered when storms come their way. They just fly higher when the winds begin to blow. The harder the storm rages, the higher they fly!

And this is what Jesus Christ has enabled you to do as his follower. When times of crisis come, when the storms rage… God speaks to your heart and says, “Look up here… come up higher… draw closer to me. I’ll see you through.”

Don’t let anyone… not even yourself… talk you out of the promise to “mount up with the wings of eagles.” This is your promise from God!

Let God lift you to new heights. Soar with the eagles!

WE WERE MADE TO SOAR ABOVE OUR CIRCUMSTANCES!
