Prepare To Fly
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.”
– Isaiah 40:31
The eagle is an unusual bird, because it has mastered the ability to fly into a storm. It “mounts” strong winds as though it is going up a staircase. It is the only bird that you will find flying during a storm.
Once upon a time, a young woman sat on a park bench over lunch. And while she sat there she noticed a butterfly trying to come out of its cocoon.
She watched it struggle and struggle for more than an hour. Eventually feeling sorry for it she reached for a small scissors, and gently used it to clip open the cocoon. To her surprise the butterfly that was released did not fly away it just sat there totally crippled.
You see, what she did not realize was that the struggle a butterfly goes through is what pumps blood into its wings so that it may be able to fly!
This year, 2019, the God of fire desires that you approach life with the majesty of an eagle!
Do not be afraid of headwinds or opposition; use them; mount them like stairs for your success!
You might be struggling to get a job; you might be struggling to make your finances work; you might be struggling to fund your education; you might be struggling to make a small business successful; you might be struggling to get ahead in your job; you might even be going through viscous persecution, that even threatens your very life.
Beloved; from today, start thinking about it differently!
No matter how dark, no matter how challenging, you are not going under; you are going over, God has not brought you this far to leave you stranded…just don’t give up!
The Lord, Your God, My God, Our Father is a consuming fire. Not only will he burn down all oppositions, But He will also make you fierce and unstoppable as you become like Him, a consuming fire.
Dear Heavenly Father, God of all flesh I celebrate and worship you today. I repent of being afraid of opposition, challenges and storms. From this day forward, I choose to wait on you in all situations, I will not cower, I will not be afraid, I will mount the storms like the Eagle. I will not stop, I will never give up. I will be like my father, I will be hot for God. I will be a man/woman of fire. In Jesus Name I pray.
