In California, we are blessed to have Bald Eagles soaring above the earth. They have a rare combination of elegance and power. Eagles are so effortless in their pursuit of altitudes of 10,000 feet or more; truly they are things of beauty.
I have observed eagles soaring far more than having observed them flapping their wings. To help them soar eagles use rising currents of warm air called “thermals” and up-drafts generated by terrain such as valley edges or mountain slopes. Soaring conserves their energy.
You were created to…
Soaring Over All Roadblocks
Roadblocks don’t magically disappear the moment we become followers of Christ. Roadblocks can make you tired from climbing over them or they can bring you to a complete stand still. But something supernatural does occur the moment we become born-again. We now have the ability to soar.
God did not create you to be slowed down or stopped by roadblocks. God created you (designed you) to soar over roadblocks. Scripture clearly tells us something about soaring.
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Is. 40:31 NASB)
Note the only prerequisite to soaring? Trusting in the Lord. The word trust implies taking a risk. You will never soar unless you leave the nest. You can live lighter today by soaring, so leave the nest and risk something. No roadblocks can stop you or even slow you down, so soar my friend!
Question of the Day
What have you trusted (risked) the Lord for and what were the results?
