Soaring High!

Text: Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

This morning I want to show you how to live life to the fullest. How to rise above all of the temptations, trial, and nuisances of this life. How to overcome the world.

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

And you can overcome the world and Satan too!

1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

I. Wait On The Lord
A. To wait on the Lord is to stop all activity, quiet yourself, and focus your attention on Him.
B. One can see this definition by the context of the word wait. Consider John 5:3: "In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water."
C. Imagine the painful, desperate, sickly crowd, longing for healing.
D. They stare breathlessly down into the pool of Bethesda, scanning its smooth quiet surface, straining, focused, waiting for the angelic disturbance.
E. It gives the idea of undistracted focus
F. Total concentration
G. Undivided attention
H. Quiet enduring patience

II. Get Renewed
A. Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
B. RENEW implies a restoration of what had become faded or disintegrated so that it seems like new.
C. New Beginning
D. Fresh

III. Get Upward, Not Downward
A. A farmer was walking through the forest one day when he found a young eagle that was hurt.
B. The farmer saved the eagle from the dangers of the forest. He took it home and put it in his chicken lot where it soon learned to eat and behave like the chickens.
C. One day a Forest Ranger passed by the farm and asked why it was that the king of all birds is living in the chicken lot with the chickens.
D. The farmer replied since he had given it a home in the chicken lot and fed it chicken feed it acted like the chickens it lived with.
E. It was no longer a great eagle of the wild outdoors but a chicken of the tame chicken lot.
F. "Still it has the heart of an eagle," replied the Ranger, "and can surely be taught to fly."
G. He lifted the eagle toward the sky and said, "You belong to the sky and not to the earth. Stretch forth your wings and fly."
H. The eagle, however, was confused. He did not know who he was, and seeing his friends the chickens walking by and eating their food, he jumped down to be with them again.
I. The Ranger took the eagle from the chicken lot to the roof of the house and urged him to fly again, saying, "You are an eagle. Stretch forth your wings and fly."
J. But the eagle was afraid of his unknown self and this new world and jumped down once more and flapped his eagle wings just enough to get back to the chicken lot for the chicken food.
K. Finally the Ranger took the eagle to a high mountain. There he held the king of the birds high above him and encouraged him again, saying, "You are an eagle. You belong to the sky. Stretch forth your wings and fly."
L. The eagle looked around, back towards the way that they had come from the chicken lot and then up to the sky. Then the Ranger saw another giant eagle soaring on the current of the wind coming toward them.
M. As the giant eagle passed by the chicken lot eagle slowly stretched his wings, and with a triumphant cry, soared away into the heavens.

You too can soar like an eagle.


Above the worldliness!

Above the worries!

Above the temptations!

Above the trials!
