When eagles get sick they fly to the top of a rock. Once there, they lie on their backs, spread their wings and allow the sun to beat down on their chest. The sun drains the poison out of their bodies.
Eagles are very smart birds. According to what I have learned about them, they are definitely smarter than me! The first thing they do when there's trouble is fly straight up. When they are not feeling well, they go straight to the rock. They understand where their energy comes from.
I do not always do that. Sure, I know the Source of my power, but I do not always utilize it. I am in the middle of a storm right now and I am having trouble flying. I would rather hide out somewhere until it's over. How can I change this? I should probably start by planting myself on the Rock. While I'm there, I need to stand under the Son with outstretched arms and allow Him to fill me with His strength.
That is my prayer for myself and all of my friends who are flying through this storm with me. We need to find the Rock and place ourselves under the Son!
"..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."
