September 6 Meet You At The Top

As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. DEU 32:11-12 (KJV) Towards the end of Moses’ life as recorded in the book of Deuteronomy, he began to give important words to the children of Israel. These were words they needed to hold on to because their success or failure depended on them. The Lord gave Moses a song and this song is recorded in Deuteronomy 32. As I read the Song of Moses, verse 11 and 12 stood out. The verses were a shining gem and I started meditating on them and knew I should encourage you with this word. Nature is full of great biblical lessons for us. Visualize an eagle with the little ones that are supposed to take their first flying lesson and they are comfortable in their nest that is high up (Jer 49:16).

The height of the nest depicts security and comfort and all the little eagles have ever known is comfort. One day, the mother eagle comes and destroys the nest-she destroys the comfort zone because her desire is that the little ones move on to the next level. Imagine the eaglets crying to the mother to stop it! Looking at the mother and thinking, “has she gone crazy…why is she destroying our place of refuge, why is she destroying our comfort?” All the time the eagle is thinking, this is the time for my little ones to go to the next level. A time for them to discover that they have wings and that they can soar and not just sit in the comfortable nest waiting to be fed. A lot of us can identify with the above, look at the Lord as being the mother eagle and we are the little eaglets that are comfortable in our nests and comfort zones.

So many times the Lord has shaken us out of our comfort zones for us to discover our potential. Have you been stirred lately, has your comfort zone been destroyed? It is the Lord who is telling you that you are ready for your ‘Flying lesson Number One.’ The eagle will bear the little one’s wing on the tip of her own wing in the first lesson. Though the course is obviously difficult, when the little eagle obeys, it will not fail. It is in moments like these that the Lord demands that we observe, obey and follow what He is doing. Our God is a God of restoration; He is a God who builds cities from ruins.
