“Yours will be the wings of an eagle’s flight, the soaring of a lark, sunward, heavenward, Godward! But you must take time to be holy – in meditation, in prayer, and especially in the use of the Bible.” F.B. Meyer
Eagles fly alone or with other eagles because they are like-minded and do not waste their strength and time with birds flying in different directions.
Eagles have excellent vision and concentration. When it is time to catch their prey, they focus directly on it, and set out to get it without distractions. Are we distracted and not concentrating on our visions? What life lesson can be learned from eagles?
And God said, “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto Myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is Mine. (Exodus 19:4-5) (1 Peter 2:9-12)
RISE ON EAGLES’ WINGS AND NOT HANG WITH BUZZARDS. Buzzards sit on fence posts awaiting its next meal to pass by or soaring swiftly in groups of two or more on the afternoon thermals; sounds like Satan and those who do his bidding.
Common buzzards feed mainly on Rabbits but will take just about any small mammal, reptile and often carrion (the carcass of a dead animal). Satan does not discriminate; he will devour everyone’s soul. Buzzards can occasionally be seen standing proudly on a piece of roadkill defending it whilst they eat.
Buzzards are great opportunist and adapts well to a varied diet of pheasant, other small mammals, snakes and lizards. They can often be seen walking over recently ploughed fields looking for worms and insects; Satan again. We can learn from this not to follow buzzards who enjoy flavors of dead things but stay on eagles’ wings and continue flying high caught up in the word of God.
