Exodus 19:4 (NIV) ~ You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagle’s wings and brought you to myself.

Here, in a picture painted by words, we see how God gathered his children as His own and lifted them far above the tyranny of oppression, and the yoke of slavery under which they had been living. God lifted His people far above the grinding, mundane way of life where they had nothing, and they knew little about the true meaning of liberty. For some of them, their daily routine was one of disappointments and hard struggles. Yet, God heard their cry for help and lifted them up and carried them on eagle’s wings to a higher place. God broke the chains of oppression and set them free. With miracle after miracle, and mighty manifestations of His great power He delivered them.

Higher and higher to new levels of faith, God took them. God showed them time and time again His mighty power by displaying works of wonders among His people. They felt the free wind blow in their faces; they ate the manna from heaven, and were given water from a rock and meat to eat. God provided for them time and time again. God showed them He was their All-Sufficient One, their EL SHADDAI, the God who is more than enough.

Time and time again God carried His people lifted high on eagle’s wings, soaring to new heights of believing in God, to great and awesome victories.

There is classic rhythm and blues song made famous by the singer Jackie Wilson, that became a hit in 1967 called, “Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher”, with these lyrics:

Now once I was downhearted, and disappointment was my closest friend,

But then you came and he soon departed, and you know he never showed his face again,

Your love keeps lifting me higher than I’ve ever been lifted before,

So keep it up, quench my desire and I’ll be at your side forevermore.

You know, your love keeps lifting me, keeps lifting me higher, than I’ve ever been lifted before.

My friend, when you cry out to the Lord your God, He will do for you what he did for the people of Israel He will do for you: He will carry you on eagle’s wings so that you will soar to new heights of faith and victory over the enemy, time and time again. He will deliver you and provide for you, He will set you free and raise you up. He will bring you to Himself and show you His mighty works of power, the manifestation of His glory, with miracle after miracle because of His great love toward you. He will lift you higher and higher so you will soar to new heights in the things of God. Today, wherever you are in your walk with the Lord, let God lift you higher and higher on wings like eagles and bring you closer to Him to know Him more.

God bless you my friend, Matthew
