Daily Verses :Isaiah 40:12-31.
Key Verse: Isaiah 40:31: 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.
An eagle only has a lifespan of seventy years but this can only happen if it is willing to go through a painful transformation at the age of forty. At the age of forty, the beak of an eagle will become bent and long, which makes it hard for it to eat. Its long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey. Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck to its chest and makes it difficult to fly. At that time, the eagle needs to fly to a mountaintop and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. After plucking it out, the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its talons. When its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers. This process will go on for 6 months. If the eagle can survive the transformation, it will become a new bird and can fly high and fight against the storm. The same can be said of God’s children. We will also go through a difficult transformation at some point in our lives. The lesson to take away from the eagle’s life is to not give up and continue to believe that God is with us always. In addition, believe that God has prepared a future that is full of hope.
Keep standing firm and do not be swayed. Fight against the storm with strong and firm faith.
