I want to mount up with wings of eagles and soar for Your glory ... but my wings won't flap.

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
    They will walk and not faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31, NLT

“Do not yield to fear, for I am always near.
    Never turn your gaze from Me, for I am your faithful God.
    I will infuse you with My strength
    and help you in every situation.
    I will hold you firmly with My victorious right hand.’” ~ Isaiah 41:10, TPT

Wings of Eagles

Lord, I hear You calling me. I know Your voice, I recognize Your presence, and I am confident of Your assignment before me. I want to obey — I want to mount up with wings of eagles and soar for Your glory … but my wings won’t flap.

It’s like they are paralyzed. Stuck in time. Why Lord? Why am I afraid to totally trust You? Actually, I think I do trust You, but I don’t trust ME.

I know You are faithful, but I'm hesitant. My wings of eagles don't want to flap and I'm discouraged.

I know You are faithful, but I’m hesitant. My wings of eagles don’t want to flap and I’m discouraged.

I’m also a bit ashamed because clearly I don’t trust You completely or I wouldn’t be so hesitant to take this leap of faith. Please forgive me for looking at my weakness rather than You.

Teach me of Your unfailing love, and Your grace that ebbs and flows constantly — faithfully — as needs arise. Renew a right spirit within me. Stir up faith in me that conquers giants.

I’m running to You, Lord. Lift me high above Your shoulders so I can catch the wind and begin my ascent.

Oh! To Soar Like an Eagle Above the Fray

I will mount up with wings of eagles, I will begin to flap my wings then spread them wide. I will relax into the wind that lifts me high above the difficult place and soar with You in the heavenly realm.

You are an awesome God — full of wonder, full of might. I love You with all of my heart.

In the Name of Jesus I pray,

Amen — let it be so
