    Or maybe it was just 7 eagles flying.
  • Kati Falk
    I saw 7 eagles circling today so I looked up this verse and I think God is telling me that if difficulties are coming to trust him to carry me through it on eagles wings - a wonderful sign/message - I will expect a wonderful flight and outcome, very comforting.

    With the help of the holy spirit, we can go places with this verse of the bible. He is our strengthener, our comforter and our guidance. Let try as much as possible to lean on Him.
  • Delichia
    This is my favorite verse. Waiting definitely requires faith! To wait means to stop, be still, don't move, hold on expectantly ,-wait for God's directions, but all the while, serving the Lord, read Bible, and pray. Trust God. He loves you so much!
  • Charlene
    Praise the lord . sometimes our strength fail and we feel like giveing up.because we can't see our way .but if we just have to faith and wait.then god will renewend our strength we shall mount up with wings like an eagle we shall run and not faint .we shall walk and not be weary.
