Isa 40:29-31 (AMP)
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him WHO has no might Hê increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound] Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; But those who wait for the Lord [ Who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [ mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
We are called to live a higher life. Just like eagles wê must soar. We are called to holiness – to overcome this world and all the idols and the flesh. You are called to soar above the storms of this life, to fly high and not be conformed to the ground.
It is in the desert that Abba teaches His eagles to overcome – to strengthen their wings, no matter how hot the dessert it or how severe the storm is.
Hê has committed Himself to care for you, guide you and bring you to maturity.
2Co 12:9 But the Lord said, "My grace is all you need. Only when you are weak can everything be done completely by my power." So I will gladly boast about my weaknesses. Then Christ's power can stay in me.
A Rock Rose that the Eagle carry is a symbol of Satan that is defeated. It means to roar!
It is also a symbol of authority and thus symbolizes Christ WHO is the Rock. He is also the beauty in the desert
