"But those who wait on 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 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: Exodus 19: 4, Amos 3: 7, Isaiah 40: 1-2.
Whatever you find yourself going through is not meant to kill you. You have to sense that something is coming and go into the place of prayer and you rise above it. Once your wings carry weight, it cannot take you higher in the situation of life. God designed and called us using the eagle.
If you want to succeed, you must be willing to rise above offences. The reason why your life is not going the right way is because you are offended at so many things. When you see disappointment, offences, bitterness coming, don't let it get to you, just lock it up! If you are able to lock yourself, what was supposed to kill you, will raise you up. Are you willing to lock it up? Your adversary can be turned to an advantage. The reason why you have been trapped where you are is because of the people you are associating with.
Discouragement is a spirit so be careful allowing people talk discouraging words to you. Not every eagle in the valley survive. You need encouragers, destiny helpers around you. You are meant to always look up. The moment you look down, you miss out. What are you looking at? Many of the people that take you down are the familiar people around you. Eagles don't move in a crowd, they move alone. You are at a place where you need to shed some of your friends. You are soaring to greater heights! You can soar to greater heights when you know the people that taunt you. It's good for people to talk against you so that God can lift you up. Don't allow anything get to your soul. Challenges are not meant to take you down but to take you up. It depends on your mindset.
Whenever you lock it up, you are destined for flight.
