Most people are not aware of the potential that lies within them. They do jobs they don’t enjoy, live in houses they dislike and travel in means they hate and the list goes on…
Despite such mediocrity and complacency, every person is created by God to soar great heights like an eagle. Here are some of the traits we can borrow from eagles:
Eagles are powerful birds of prey, whose strength lies in their enormous wings. They have large, strong beaks and powerful claws. God has also wired the human race in a powerful way. Human beings have the most developed brain network compared to other God’s creatures. That is why it is only man who has developed the earth with massive technological advancements.
Even though their eyes are larger than that of humans, they can see up to three and a half times better than a person with perfect vision. An eagle can see a moving rabbit from a mile away, and a fellow eagle soaring 50 miles away! Now, we may not have such powerful vision but we can bank on God to enhance our spiritual vision. He has said that without a vision, people perish.
An eagle has a wingspan of up to seven feet and learns to soar by using thermal currents of air. The surrounding terrain creates these warm air patterns.
When soaring the skies, an eagle spreads its wings and tail feathers and lets the wind carry it to new heights, then glides down to catch another upward thermal.
Soaring saves an eagle energy because it does not have to flap its wings as often. Soaring like an eagle is no mean task. Our thoughts must be transformed and we must purpose to push ourselves to unimaginable levels.
