With Wings Like an Eagle

text size A A A

The modern English name of the bird is derived from the Latin term aquila by way of the French aigle. The Latin aquila may derive from the word aquilo, the Latin version of Greek boreas, or north wind

Enough of looking up to men or women either at their virtues or their shame –  look up and consider God as the Eagle who emerges with an unstoppable fury, speed and power as the wind.   Surely,  no man but only God could possibly have given the eagle its marvelous abilities. The Lord once explained to Job that the eagle has built "her nest on high" (Job 39:27) at the tops of the very highest trees or cliffs. Men can neither reach nor disturb even his most feeble plans and arrangements  – so much so like the agenda of God for His people... unstoppable.

Unlike many birds, which abandon their nests after their young are hatched, the eagle keeps building upon her old nest, remodelling it, year after year. God has not abandoned you nor will He ever abandon His people. Eagles have wings wonderfully designed wings to soar (gliding with very little wing movement) for long periods of time at incredible speeds over 150 mph  – at altitudes as high as 10,000 feet  - and not tired.

The wisdom and power of this being God created helps us consider greater possibilities in the Creator concerning your situation. Take your eyes off the splendour and depravity of men for a moment and consider God and His awesome deeds reminding us of His unmatchable capabilities.  Reflect on the following passages in scriptures that occurred or are prophesied to occur with lightning speed and unstoppable force  to achieve what no one could stop or even anticipate hindering even in the slightest way ...

Genesis 5[24]  And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Exodus 14[21]  And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land , and the waters were divided.

I Kings 18[44]  And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot , and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not. [45]  And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel. [46]  And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

2 Kings 2[11]  And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Acts 2[1]  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. [2]  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. [3]  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. [4]  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

I Corinthians 15[52]  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Pastor E. A. Adeboye – General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God writes concerning the 59th Annual Convention themed “With Wings like an Eagle”...

“ It’s an exciting journey as you prepare to ascend to the top; therefore you need to be focused and let nothing divert your attention or distract you throughout this Convention.  Be determined to enter into a deeper relationship and intimacy with your heavenly Father through fervent prayer, heartfelt worship and meditating on the Word of life.

The benefits of flying high like the eagle are immense; for the just shall live by faith.  This means that you are able to soar above fear, failure, traps and snares of the devil.  It also means that your insight and perception of spiritual matters become very keen ...”

Indeed we are in times that many things are happening within and without that cause us sometimes to tremble with wonder...Turn your eyes off these things for a moment and consider Him who makes His saints an amazement against all daunting odds.

Song of Solomon 4 [16]  Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits
