The Eagle Analogy And Our Christian Walk

As I have stated in my article, “God is the Potter, We are the Clay,” whenever God gives you a specific analogy in the Bible, what He wants you to do is to seek into what the analogy is all about so you can fully understand what He is trying to convey to you.

In the verse that God is the potter and we are the clay, what you have to do is find out exactly how pottery is made before you can see the correlation between how the potter forms and molds out the clay into the piece of pottery he is looking to make, and how God wants to mold, shape, and transform us in this life as we continue to grow in His knowledge, grace, and power.

Another very powerful analogy that the Lord has hidden back in His Word in the Old Testament is what I call the eagle analogy. Here is the verse where this specific analogy is being given to us by the Lord:

“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

The two key words in this verse are that we will mount up with wings “like eagles.” The Original King James Version uses the words “as eagles.”

I believe God is trying to tell us something when He compares all of us to eagles in this particular verse. I remember when I first saw this verse years ago, it really jumped off the page at me.

Several years ago, I did a study of eagles and their personality traits to see if there were any personality traits that were inherent in the eagle that God wanted us to have with Him.

After finding out exactly what personality traits eagles do have, I came to the conclusion that God was definitely trying to convey some additional knowledge to all of us as to what additional qualities He would like all of us to have worked into our personalities.

The other thing I noticed, starting about 10-15 years ago, is that there were a lot of eagle pictures and eagle statues in many of the Christian bookstores, with all of them coming off the above verse.

Again, I believe God is trying to draw all of us into this specific verse so we can find out exactly what He is trying to tell us with the revelation that is contained in it.

In part 2 of the Eagle Analogy, I will go ahead and give you some of the main qualities and traits of the eagle, and then show you how their qualities and traits perfectly line up with what God would like to have worked into our personalities so we can all learn how to become good and mighty soldiers of Jesus Christ.

I believe this analogy to be an extremely powerful and profound analogy, and that it fully applies to each and every Christian.

    Just beautiful! Thank you for that explanation. I’ve been seeing eagles fly over our house quite often the last few yrs, but the last time was a few wks ago, as I was on the phone, getting the courage up to step out and do what God has been calling me to do. I am normally a chicken…not an eagle…so God really had work to do when He called me! God is so good though.

    A very good book on this is, “Learning To Soar”, by Avery and Matt Willis. : )

    Thanks for your expository teaching on the skill and ability of the eagle to soar through the storm with little effort to greater heights. God bless you.

    The day I got born again this year at my house three eagles circled above me. (I thought ok –I have lived here 5 years and have never had an eagle at my house) Then I started regularly seeing an eagle circleing my house. Then a few months later I decided to totally submit to God and to stop living my life the way I had hoped it would work out but HIS way. That day I saw seven eagels clrcle above my house for about 5 minutes. Today, (where normally the eagels fly very high up in the sky) the eagle was coming down right above me only about 15 feet up in and out below the trees in my backyard. I didn’t know what this ment and was wondering if anyone could give me some insight. Thank you and God Bless!

    Thank you for this analogy. About a month ago I had a dream and in it I had to fight demonic forces and sometimes tear them to shreds. In the last dream I heard a voice tell me “you are The Gentle Eagle”. Now the dreams make sense.

    Hi my name is Crystal Chanlatte, i am nineteen years old. I had a dream last night with an eagle, it came through the window of my bedroom. I ran from it because i was, scared of it it was huge. The second time it appeared it talked to me i cant recall exactly what the eagle said, but i remember asking a question about a girl, i asked the eagle if this girl i don’t even know and for some reason had a pact with the devil, it replied yes. After that the eagle left a man said the eagle dropped something for you. i opened the package and, it was a scroll of things i had to do, i cant remember exactly what it said i really wish i could. I woke up from the dream and went to talk to my mother, we prayed for maybe there is someone who is in grave danger, referring to the girl who in my dream was in a pact with the devil. I’m not sure if GOD needs me to help this person, i don’t even recognize this person. I went online and looked up what an eagle represents in the bible, when i found this. It spoke to me In so many ways i cant even explain. I just thank the lord because this has helped me realize that I have to do these things to Accomplish what god has in store for me, because i chose to live for GOD.

    I am yet read through But with just little I glimpse on “Like eagles” and “as eagles” Well I think every believers needs this Because if you want to MOUNT up even to the TOP and never faint,and weary then you need to ask why am I made like this “as eagles” There is a special,a divine purpose why the potter made you like this… You can be redesign by the potter HIMSELF with HIS CLAY to the best he’d wanted you to be…
    THIS AWESOME

    I’m a Paraglider Pilot. I fly with Eagles often. Aside from all the analysis of how Eagles behave, I would like to know, were there glider pilots back in Isaiah’s time? anybody heard of this?

    • Chris - October 18, 2013 at 7:53 am

      Hi Steve, I have not hear of glider pilots back in Isaiah’s time

  13. flora pinder iza - October 15, 2013 at 10:15 am

    For the pass 3yrs God gave a book to write on an eagle and the woman i ve bee looking for materials to start the book. Am happy to .

  14. Steve Konves - October 18, 2013 at 9:36 am

    Well, Isaiah obviously saw people running, walking. I’m wondering if there weren’t guys trying to fly. Man has wanted to fly forever. Leonardo Da Vinci had a diagram of a Helicopter-type device.

    mean-time, I’ll just keep mounting up With Eagles.

    I recently received a word of knowledge. The person who gave me this word. Saw a eagle over my head. I had some keys in my hand. These keys were to the nations. He also saw doors opening up to me with these keys. In reading and taking notes on this article on Eagles it inspired me in understanding the depths
    of where the Lord (Holy Spirit) is leading me into. Thanks so much for the enlightenment. May God continue to bless and keep you……………… Opal Love
