High Above the Storm

“but they who wait for 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).

Eagles are large, powerful birds with incredible eyesight, which allows them to see prey from very long distances away. They are ranked at the top of the food chain and make their nests in tall trees or on high cliffs, which is well out of the view and reach of other animals.

Isaiah made reference to even young men growing faint and weary and falling due to exhaustion (Isaiah 40:30). But it is in waiting on God, that causes us to develop the strength and stamina of an eagle. Paul also reminded us that God has, “raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). Our seating with Christ Jesus is, “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:21).

Our positioning offers a privileged vantage point and changes our perspective from surface level thinking, to seeing in the realms of the spirit. Knowing who we are, the authority that we have in Jesus Christ and our place in Christ, takes our focus off the tests and trials. God has put all things under the feet of Jesus and as we are seated with him, all things are under our feet (Ephesians 1:22).

We have to maintain our eternal perspective and keep our eyes above the challenges. Stay seated near Jesus with the devil and his agents under our feet.

  1. I love the eagle perspective. The eagle doesn’t seem to struggle, or to have any reservations. Its strength and power is unrivaled, and it is fearless.
    When the believer revived this revelation, it should change the way we see ourselves. We can live in the realm of “all things are possible”, especially knowing the currents of the Holy Spirit.
