Spiritual Lessons from the Eagle’s Nest

Deuteronomy 32:11-12
Watching an eagle soar in the heavens is an absolutely wonderful sight to behold.  Our series will focus on how these great birds learn to survive and master their world and how it compares to God’s work in our lives. 

It begins with the tender and purposeful care of the mother. There is a beautifully graphic description of God's care and desire for Israel over in the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy.  It pictures how God lovingly brings about change and maturity in the lives of His people.  He longs for us to soar on the wings of faith!

I.      Design Stage  Job 39:27-28
God has provided a place for us to be developed into mature believers.  It is called the Church.

II.     The Demonstration Stage  Deuteronomy 32:11
The thing about learning through example is that we are always teaching by the way we live.
Children are receptors and reflectors. 
I can change my child by changing me!
Children and disciples indiscriminately imitate what they see.
Imprinting is what God does in giving us the example of Jesus. 
(What Would Jesus Do?)
Not everything that ‘moves’ in the name of Christianity is the right example to follow.
Flying in a Christian’s life is faith to rise above circumstances.
Hunting is searching for the manna or bread from heaven, to grow strong and healthy. 

Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:31
