I started cleaning my room today while listening to the Eagles teachings by Dr Rob Carman, but became so engrossed in what he was saying that I just lay on my bed and listened while I had papers and books scattered all over my floor.
One thing I learned today about eagles is how they deal with storms.
When storms come, all the other birds fly away. But not the eagle. When he sees a storm coming from afar, he will fly to a mountaintop and face the storm head on. And when the storm reaches him, he’ll allow the wind to carry his wings so that he can soar above the storm.
Isaiah 40 28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 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.
Mount Moriah was where Abraham sacrificed Isaac, or was gonna sacrifice Isaac. Mount Zion is the location of the temple of God. Mount Sinai is where Moses removed his sandals because of God’s power and presence. Mount Ebal is where Joshua built an altar. Mount Carmel is where Elijah met the prophets of Baal. Jesus was transfigured on a mountain, Jesus prayed and preached from mountains, and it was on Mount Calvary that he died for the sins of the world.
What do mountains mean? Mountains mean that we have a high call.
