The Theology of Eagle

This is a song of Moses
Introduction When I got kicked out of the house.
There are over 74 types of Eagles and they are all consider birds of prey. Bald Eagle, Golden Eagle, Philippine eagle, Sea Eagles, Wedge - tail eagles.
Eagles are consider to be the top predators of their species. it was said that a bald eagle carried of a 15 lb deer fawn.
Eagles build there nest it what is called eyries. In tall tress or on high cliffs. A pair of eagles may take up to 6 weeks to build a nest, usually in the top of a tree, lining it with soft grasses, moss and cornstalks. To complete the next, they tenderly line the bottom with their own feathers.
For the first twelve weeks of life, the eaglet relaxes, trusting her parents to provide everything she needs.
When it’s time for the eaglet to learn to fly, the mother and father use their sharp talons to pull apart the soft materials that lined the nest. Then the mother eagle rises up and hovers over the nest, flapping her huge wings, stirring the nest.
As she does this, all of the comfortable stuff that kept the nest cozy flies out. This sends a clear message to the eaglet—it’s time to leave your life of comfort!
Sometimes we
she flings them right out of the nest, high above the ground. They begin to fall straightway. They never have been in air before; they have always been in the nest.
We need to Pushed out of Comfort Zone!
Your Comfort Zone is your routine, You already know what you going to get out of it. You already know what it will do and what it won’t do. It is a place of complacency! You have to get out of your comfort zone! It means doing things that you are not comfortable doing. Getting outside of your comfort levels. It means handling the stress of something different, new, and adventurous.
The worse thing in the world is being an eagle that will not fly!
The truth is we won’t do it on our own, we need to be pushed to do it!!!
Pray Until Something Happens.
Praise Until Something Happens
Persist Until Something Happens.
The sooner you step away from your comfort zone: The sooner You’ll realize that it Really wasn’t all that comfortable.
Yubing Zhang - In her TEDtalk shared that she was about to bungie jump and as she was standing on the platfrom. She felt the wind blowing on her face, she felt the rope around her ankles and she was about to turn around said no I’m not jumping, but she saw on the glass window as she turned. That life begins at the End of your Comfort Zone.
The Mother Eagle begins to Stir the Nest To push them out of the Comfort Zone
Is that mother bird cruel? Why does she disturb the eaglets?
Watch her and you will understand. As long as you look upon the struggling eaglets in the air — you miss the point. Watch the eagle herself. Having stirred up her nest, "she spreads her wings to catch them." Where are the eaglets? Struggling, falling! Then what does she do? "She carries them on her back" She swoops beneath them, catches them on her wings, and bears them up.
2. If you never get out of comfort Zone, you’ll never Fly.
As the Eagles are falling begin to understand that they have wings!! They begin to understand that they were not meant to live forever in the Nest.
Sometimes God gets us out of our Comfort Zone so that we can learn how to fly.
It may appear that the Mother Eagle is being mean!
Allowing the baby eagles the eaglets to fall, but she does this over, over, and over. Until The eaglet understand the power That is in its wings! It has to understand that it was it meant to fly.
Nudge your Neighbor and say you were meant to fly!
God design you for Greatness! He has a purpose for your life.
Exodus 9:16 NKJV
But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.
Proverbs 19:21 NKJV
There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.
Proverbs 12:
There is a story told of the Chicken & and Eagle!
One day an Farmer found an eagle Egg on the ground and he took it and put it under one of his hens in the hen house. When all the eggs hatched you had chickens and this one eaglet. The Hen raised them all the same giving show them how to scratch for worm and how to live. One day the were jumping, but they were not flying. One of the little chicks said we can use our wings but we won’t fly so the little eaglet notice when she used her wings she went further than anyone else. The next day they saw and eagle in the sky. He asked the Hen what that?
He said that an eagle a bird of the sky, and we birds of the ground. At that moment he said I want to fly. The Hen said but we live on the ground. The eaglet made up in his mind it is my time to fly. Spread her wings took of running and started to fly.
