“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.“– ISAIAH 40 : 31
The word ‘Wait’ has become one of those terms which people dislike the most in this busy world where no one wants to wait or anticipate for things to take their natural course of time. Even when we plant a seed in the garden, we want to refrain from waiting and expect for the seed to sprout and grow up as soon as possible. Let it be for natural, social or personal reasons, we try to avoid the ‘wait’. What about you?.. Have you been waiting for some miracle?
Yes, waiting is difficult only when you do it for someone or something that has no possibility of happening. Instead, waiting on the ONE who is already waiting to embrace you with HIS loving arms of everlasting grace ISN’T DIFFICULT because it comes with tons of sweet blessings that is beyond one’s imagination!..Moreover, waiting on GOD renews you with the strength to turn your impossibilities into possibilities!
By this encouraging verse, prophet Isaiah brings out the wisdom behind waiting. And as we all know no bird could be a perfect example for this than the eagles!..When eagles get older and weak because of worn out feathers, which slow down flight speed and maneuvers, the eagles retire away in the rocks and will pluck all their old feathers until it is completely bare. It waits until a new set of feather grows and comes out of his body. This happens at about the age of 30. What is really interesting is that the eagle never gives up living, instead he eagle retreats to a mountaintop and over a five month period goes through a metamorphosis. It knocks off its own beak by banging it against a rock, plucks out its talons and then feathers. Each stage produces a regrowth of the removed body parts, allowing the eagle to live for another 30 – 40 years. Eagles are the symbol of WILL POWER, CONFIDENCE and STRENGTH!..There are so many life-changing lessons that could be learned from their lifestyle..Do let me know in the comment section below as to ‘which unique trait of eagles encourages you the most?’.… I’m waiting to see them!
‘A BIRD’ or ‘AN EAGLE’..What would you like to be?
‘All birds find shelter during a rain..But EAGLE avoids rain by flying above the clouds.’– In the words of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Run without getting weary..
When we learn to trust our Maker like how an eaglet trusts its mother, God is worthy to strengthen your weak wings with HIS Powerful Wings of Strength!..As HE starts leading you in the right track, HE makes your run in this world to be a pleasant and tireless one!..
Walk without getting faint..
Sometimes, worries and disappointments in life could make us slow our run and walk with a faint heart…There’s a good news in that too!..Your Creator is the BEST COMPANION..HE loves walking with you and talking to you as you cross this troublesome journey…Just remember to hold on to HIS ever-caring hands!
If the WRIGHT BROTHERS could remove the clouds of impossibility with their will-power to fly high into the skies…
