I have read that an eagle stops flapping its wings in the winds of a storm, allowing the winds to push it higher as it soars and glides.
Isaiah 40:29-31 reads,
"He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
When we grow tired of "flapping our wings" through whatever storm we are currently in, we can find rest in God.
He allows us to hold out our arms and glide with His strength, trusting in Him to care for us as we soar together.
Are you weary?
Have you stumbled or fallen lately?
Your strength can be renewed.
Put your hope in the LORD.
