Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them,
bearing them on its pinions.
An eagle’s nest is quite an elaborate affair. A pair of eagles may take up to 6 weeks to build a nest, usually in the top of a tree, lining it with soft grasses, moss and other grassy materials. Finally, to complete the nest, they tenderly line the bottom with their own feathers. For the first twelve weeks of life, the eaglet relaxes, trusting her parents to provide everything she needs. When it’s time for the eaglet to learn to fly, the mother and father use their sharp talons to pull apart the soft materials that lined the nest. Then the mother eagle rises up and hovers over the nest, flapping her huge wings, stirring the nest. As she does this, all of the comfortable stuff that kept the nest cozy flies out. This sends a clear message to the eaglet—it’s time to leave your life of comfort! Sometimes when things don’t go the way you think they should in life, rather than immediately jumping to the conclusion that the devil is messing with you, you should ask the Lord if He’s stirring your nest in an effort to teach you to fly. It’s easy to sit back and enjoy the comfort of the nest and when something gets stirred up start blaming and rebuking the devil when God is the One at work. He knows that there are greater things in store for you than what you can experience in the nest and He is far more concerned with your character than your comfort. Just like a mother eagle, He will never let you fall when He is teaching you to fly. Are you willing to trust Him enough to jump out the nest? – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
