12 Great lifestyles of an Eagle Christian
By Samson Paul Adeniran
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
“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“.
The Eagle is a king in the kingdom of the Alves (Birds) just as Lion is the king of the jungles, whale is the king of the water, and Gold, the king of metals. And most time, we saw God Himself bringing unto His people the characters of Eagles. He desires us to possess certain exemplary characters of eagles so as to become who He really wants us to be. Because, God has great plans for His people.
Jeremiah 29: 11 KJV
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
One of the great plans of God for us is greatness, victory, promotions etc which are expressions of the symbolic eagle.
Eagles have four major symbolic meaning
3. Authority and
If a man will be an effective leader, studying about Eagle and other animals is an advantage to him. It’s recognize in history. Most ancient leaders use eagles as their emblems. Ancient armies use symbols of eagles. Some use it on their flags. Many nations like Australia, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Nigeria, Rome, Russia, China etc, use image of eagle on their coat of arm.
There are many things to learn from the great eagles as believers, but here, we shall consider twelve of such.
1. Eagles Are Swift :
By swift we mean Urgent, Duet 28:29. Job 9:26 Eagles hasten. They have a sense of urgency. They are quick in taking steps and decisions that matters to them. They don’t delay. You need to learn this attributes from an eagle on your journey to destiny ground.
You must exist on a protocol with a sense of urgency. You must learn to make up your mind quickly and act promptly on issues that matter you have always delayed. Someone has said
“Indecision is the father, procrastination is the mother of the twins called stagnation and frustration”.
There’s no place on top and in front for anybody who has no value for time and who is indecisive. Time wasters are life wasters. To be eagle Christian, you must learn to be time bound. Be urgent and smart.
2. Eagles Soar Very High
This may be because of their great strength and capacity. They don’t stay around the reach of common birds.
Where you constantly see yourself is where you will eventually find yourself.
If it’s among stars, you will find yourselves among stars. Aim high and you will end high. Our problems is not that we don’t have aim, but our aims are not high enough. When you read your goals, it should scare you. Your mind must be bigger than you if you will be great.
One of the The difference between eagle Christians and chicken Christians even some on their businesses is, one aim higher than the other. Eagles soar above all obstacles, mountains and hills. You must see yourself above your limitations.
3. Eagles Never Flock
Eagles soar, they don’t fly. They soar alone at high altitude and not with sparrows or other small birds. Eagles soar with Eagles. They don’t flock. It soars either alone or with two.
Eagles Christians choose their company. They don’t just go with all kind people. If you can’t choose your company, you can’t fly.
Your company determine your accomplishments. Eagles choose his company. He soars with his contemporaries. Choose your company today.
4. Eagles Have Strong Sight/vision
They have the ability to focus on something at about 70 kilometers away. When an eagle sites his prey, it narrows his focus on it and set out to get it. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.
Eagles Christians don’t lose focus until their vision is accomplished. If you will be one, this principle must not leave you. If you can see beyond the moment, you can live beyond the moment. Live beyond yourself and live beyond your time.
We must not just look, we must see and stay glue until what we see comes through.
5. Eagles Has Unusual Strength
Eagles have capacity that it unusual. They can carry a load that is as big as three times of their own size. One of the function of the seven spirit of God is Strength (Isaiah 11:1-3). Strength is one of the heritage of Christians in the kingdom. The unusual strength we saw in an eagle can also be demonstrated by you. Such a capacity to labour more abundantly than other, just like the testimony of Paul.
