Waiting on God is a powerful way to renew your strength. The Bible says: “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31
So if you are feeling burnt out or like you no longer have any strength just go before the throne of God and He will renew your strength.
Did you know that the eagle’s eyesight is much better than ours. The eagle has a binocular field of view of 160 degrees horizontally and 170 degrees vertically, which is about 10 times the human field of view. They can see the smallest things from afar. We too should hone our spiritual eyes like the eagle so we can see things from afar before they get too close to cause us harm.
Another fun fact about eagles is that they love storms. They get excited when storm clouds gather. Why? They know the storm winds will lift them above the clouds. As a believer don’t get discouraged when you are in the midst of a storm but rather take comfort that the Lord will help you rise and soar above that storm.
