SOARING LIKE EAGLE
The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live up to 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision! In its 40th year, the eagle’s long and flexible Talons can no longer grab a prey which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE! This process lasts for 150 days (5 months) The process requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers.
And after this the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!! Why is Change needed? In order to survive and live. We too have to start the change process.
We sometimes need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mind set. Only Freed from the past burdens can we take advantage of the present. If an eagle can make a life saving and life changing decision at the age of 40….why can’t we? In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs. Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle! When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds….The problem is common to all, but the attitude to solve it makes the difference! Don’t be afraid of change…accept it gracefully..!!! Prophet Isaiah said in Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.
Vs 30-Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
Vs 31-But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Don’t ever give up on your businesses, marriage, education, ministry and your health, death is not your portion, that huge debt will not swallow you, God will touch that your son- miracles are around you, keep your focus on Jesus that died on the calvary! Trust him, pray more, read your Bible more and wait for Him! Don’t submit to the pressure of Satan and his destructive advices, he’s always a liar! You will fly with great breakthrough again in Jesus name. I also pray that you will achieve all the purpose of God for your life in Jesus name! Amen.-Dr Oyedepo G O.
