"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.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
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." Isaiah 40:28-31
I took these downtown today. I couldn't find information on it, but this sculpture is on the top of a downtown building. I have a good zoom on my camera! I had been wanting to get a pic of this because there are quite a few references to eagles in the Bible. Eagles are strong, powerful birds of prey, and they have good eyesight. I love the song where we sing that God will raise us up on eagle's wings. It is a comforting message, and I tend to think of the eagle's wings as a soft, warm place to be, but the message here, is that we will be as strong as the eagles. I like that message even better, and this eagle is fierce looking. I want to look like that to Satan, and not like an easy victim.
