I woke up this morning and started brooding about an eagle Surprise!
I asked myself why do people accord that statement "soar like an eagle" why not soar like a lion even though we were told the lion is the strongest animal in the jungle. I will let us know.
Secondly, there is alot of spiritual meaning about an eagle:
It signifies inspiration,strength,power, superiority,victory, speed, release from bondage, courage, father and royalty.
It is not a coincidence that many Nations use Eagle as a National symbol including my Nation, Nigeria. It is an emblem of powerful Nation.
These birds EAGLE possess lots of characteristics that human beings should learn from.
CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EAGLE
EAGLES FLY ALONE OR MOVE WITH THEIR OWN KIND
The saying " birds of same feathers flock together" does not apply to eagles. The fly with their kind but would never flock together.
Associate with people of likemind. Those who can help you to grow the vision you have. Don't waste your time with people who don't believe in you. The truth is not everyone will believe in you and you dreams. Be sensitive to kick those people away from your life.
Eagle have excellent vision and concentration. An eagle can focus on objects below six(6) kilometer. When they see prey they waste no time in targeting and making plans irrespective of obstacles they are focused and concentrated on getting the prey.
Be determined and focused in life. Be focus on that big plans of yours, concentrate on it too. First be sure of the goal, focus on it and then achieve it irrespective of obstacles. Be determined to win.
EAGLES LOVE THE STORM
Eagles thrives during storm as they are excited because they know the storm makes them to soar that is to lift them above the cloud and they come through the storm stronger than before meanwhile other birds are afraid.
In life we are bound to face challenges. Just as the eagle be bold, courageous and determined. Never give up. Know that there is an opportunity lurking behind every challenge.
If there is one thing about eagles, they are fearless,relentless and focused. It does not matter how big their prey is once they have determined in their mind, it is done.
NEVER give up on yourself. Beyond the fear lies victory you just need to be bold and fearless to climb over it and you become victorious.
EAGLE TEST THE LEVEL OF COMMITMENT BEFORE ENGAGEMENT
Trust they said is earned. And it is exhibited by eagles. When a female eagle want to mate, she does a test by flying down to earth pick a twig then flies back into the air as high as she can go. The male eagle follows her then she lets the twig fall. The male eagle has to catch the twig before it reaches earth and then bring it back to the female eagle.
There should be prove of commitment in people you let into you life it is very important especially in choosing life partner. Trust and commitment should be part of the bedrock in making such decision.
RECUPERATE( ABILITY TO RESTORE GOOD HEALTH AND STRENGTH
Though eagles have good qualities, there is a weakness they have which they know how to handle such weakness. When an eagle reaches 30 years their body begins to deteriorate making survival difficult. The eagle goes to a mountaintop or cliff and stay there upto 4 months. By so doing the old feathers are plucked off and its beak which it hits so hard on the rock until it is off. Therefore an eagle undergoes a metamorphosis ready to live another 30 years and above.
Understand when to retreat both physically and mentally.
Have a check up of your body. In retreating, assess your life how far you have achieved, create room for new ways of achieving a result . You get all these when you retreat to examine your life.
As a believer also have a time to retreat to examine your walk and work with God.
There is so much to learn from an eagle and these cannot be overemphasize. Is it how fearless the eagle is or how committed to a task.
Thank you for reading and I know you have added knowledge to be more wiser.
