LIKE AN EAGLE
Delight yourself in My creation. I have made each species so different and varied in order to teach you more about Me. Eagles are regal and majestic, but if left on their own when young they would not survive. That is how I take care of you, feeding you with My Word. I hover over you, protecting you from the elements and other predators. I am always watching.
However, there is a time when I must push each of My children out of the nest so that you can learn to fly. One would never mature and develop properly otherwise. It would actually be a hindrance to your growth if you were not forced to fly. You would eventually die of starvation by remaining in the nest.
Likewise, your spiritual parents cannot feed you forever. You will need to learn to feed yourself on My Word. Learn to wait on Me and listen to My voice. You will always need community, but you were made to fly with Me as the wind beneath your wings.
Psalm 91:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions,
And under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.
Deuteronomy 32:11-12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
11 As an eagle that protects its nest,
That flutters over its young,
He spread out His wings and took them,
He carried them on His pinions.
12 So the Lord alone led him;
There was no foreign god with him.
Isaiah 40:31 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired.
