I found this in Recaps and thought it was really a nice reading! Hope you enjoy!
FaithRider: As An Eagle - Soaring Above

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 40:31

All throughout scripture, the person who continues to trust in and hope in the Lord is compared to an eagle. I personally like that comparison. However, even in nature we find that even an eagle has pests, one of those pests is a crow.

A few years ago, there was a crow that came in our yard every day and it would get fed at our house. I didn't like the crow, I certainly didn't feed it. For one thing it kept other birds, much more pleasant birds, out of our yard and I didn't like that. I found that crows are controlling and mean and very irritating.

Let me share with you what happens between a crow and an eagle. As I said, the crow is a pest to the eagle. Just a pest, it can't really compete with an eagle, not in beauty, not in the heights it can fly, really not in any aspect, yet it continues to try to irritate the eagle.

When an eagle is flying, often a crow will come up right behind him and start to aggravate him. He will fly right behind the eagle to pester and irritate him. Although the eagle is much larger, it can't move as quickly. However, the eagle has a way to get rid of his pest.

To rid himself of the crow the eagle stretches his eight-foot wingspan and catches a current and rises higher and higher. Eventually, the eagle reaches an altitude where no other bird can fly and live. Crows can't even breathe at that height. Eagles have been spotted at heights of 20,000 feet, almost as high as a jet flies.

Now, you may have some pests in your life. You know what I mean, certain people who simply rub you the wrong way, who seem to be around just to irritate. Today, let's take a lesson from the eagle - let's rise higher.

Don't lower yourself to their level, refuse to fly with crows. As an eagle you can soar higher and higher, high above the irritations of life and rise to new heights, heights where those things from the enemy can't even breathe.

You are an eagle, made in the image of God. You are not a crow, you live in a totally different altitude or at least you should. You were not designed to fly with crows. You were not created to lower yourself to their standard but to rise high above principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world. You live in a totally different atmosphere.

Don't allow the pests of life to control you. Stop reacting to what they do and rise above. Stop being controlled by the irritating things of life and rise above. Stop allowing other people to dictate where you fly, rise above.

Do you hope in the Lord today? Then rise, renew your strength and rise above all the distractions and pests, soar on wings like eagles, rise above the atmosphere that the enemy is in and go into the secret place of the Most High God, I can assure you, your enemy will not be found there.
