Does the eagle mount up at your command and make her nest on high? She dwells and abides on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From there she seeks out her food; her eyes detect it from afar.
When we accomplish goals and receive recognition, it is easy for pride to set in. We can easily get ahead of ourselves and think that our power and ability somehow is the ultimate reason for our success and accomplishments.We have to be reminded just how powerless we are in comparison to a powerful God. In Job 39 God began to ask Job questions about the foundations of the earth and all that dwells there in. These questions are so profound that the answers shut down pride or boastfulness. The answer to the question about the eagle……. “Does the eagle mount up at your command? The art of the eagle is that everything from its strength to its wonder and beauty is because of God. This is to be true about us. The art of who we are, and what we are, everything from your strengths wonders and beauty is because of God.
