Soar on Wings like Eagles

“They that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not be faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

This has been one of my most favorite verses from the bible. The feeling of being weightless with the wind brushing through our hair in flight is such a magical experience and I have often wondered what that feels like. The word "Soar" in this verse particularly got my attention, because it brings to mind the word "Surrender". Eagles are the only birds that "Soar" which differs from swinging their wings and hovering like other birds. Soar is to surrender to the wind draft that is in higher altitudes that sustains even a powerful bird like the Mighty eagle. Likewise in our waiting seasons, Our God's faithfulness, His abiding presence and His promises are able to sustain us to Soar in expectancy rather than to sink in despair .

Be blessed everyone.
