In Exodus 19, after leaving Egypt and spending some time in the wilderness, the Israelites have arrived at the base of Mount Sinai. There, God speaks to Moses from the mountain, inviting the Israelites to enter into a covenant with Him. In verse 4, God says,
“You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself.”
The use of eagles’ wings in this verse is a metaphor for the protection and guidance that God provided to the Israelites. Eagles are known for their strength and power, and their wings are a symbol of the ability to soar high above the earth. The image of eagles’ wings emphasizes the idea that God was able to supernaturally deliver the Israelites from their enslavement and carry them to a place of freedom.
This verse reminds us of the incredible love and protection of our Lord. He has shown us time and time again that He is with us in every moment, guiding us and carrying us through even the toughest of circumstances.
Just as the Israelites were carried on the wings of eagles, we too are carried by the loving arms of Jesus. We don’t need to fear the unknown or the uncertain because we are never alone.
In times of struggle and hardship, we can take comfort in knowing that God is with us, guiding us step by step. He is our strength, our shield, and our refuge. He is able to move us from a place of spiritual slavery to freedom in Christ.
Let’s trust the Lord and have faith that He will carry us on eagles’ wings, bringing us closer to Him each and every day.
Remember, Peter, that you are loved, protected, and cherished by the Lord. I’m praying His blessings over you today.
God loves you and so do I,
