I received a word from God through a friend, actually it was more like a picture but I wanted to share it with you incase you are also needing to hear from God.
Eagle momma's are very particular about their babies when the young ones are learning to fly. When it's time to fly they will start picking the soft cuddly stuff out of their nests so the babies will become uncomfortable. The babies will start teetering around, some on the edge of the nest probably chirping at momma to knock it off and put the pillows back down but after a while of being uncomfortable the momma will just push the baby over the side of the nest and as you can imagine those little wings are flapping as hard as they can but just when the babies think they are gonna crash and burn to the ground the momma swoops in and brings the babies on her wings, brings them back in the air then starts flapping her wings to teach them how to fly. No matter how hopeless it looks at the time for the babies the momma never ever lets them fall.
This is a picture of God with us. At the beginning it's all soft and cuddly, He's feeding us and nurturing us but then as we grow and learn and get "older" He starts teaching us a few things and slowly starts picking the cuddly stuff out of our nest, He starts making us uncomfortable, starts getting us out in the world a bit more, starts using us a little more then as we're teetering on the edge of His will for our lives, He sees that we're ready and He will push us over the edge, while we think we are falling and things are spinning out of control and while it seems we will crash and burn without a hope in the world God swoops down under us and catches us in His mighty hand right before we fall, He brings us back up with Him and teaches us How to fly fully relying on Him. No matter how hopeless or scary it seems at the time, He has absolutley no intention of letting us fall. There comes a time in our walk that we just have to jump off the edge of ourselves and let Him swoop in and pick us back up. It's not for us to decide though, He will push us when He sees that we're ready.
God you are my God and I will ever praise You. Thank You for seeing in me something that is useful to You. Thank You that You won't let me fall. Thank You that You made me for victory through You. I love You Lord. I won't be overwhelmed.
