Is He Stirring Up Your Nest?

While teaching him to fly, the mother eagle will take her baby high above the clouds, higher than he had ever dreamed of going.”

Is He Stirring Up Your Nest?

As an eagle stirs up its nest,
Hovers over its young,
Spreading out its wings, taking them up,
Carrying them on its wings,
12 So the Lord alone led him,
And there was no foreign god with him.
 Deuteronomy 32: 11 – 12

In the above verses Moses compared the loving care of God for His people to that of an eagle for her young chicks. When the time is right for the young to fly, the eagle begins to stir up the nest so that her young, comfortably snuggled in thinking they would remain there for ever are pushed out of the nest.

As the chicks fall out surely to their destruction, the mother swoops down spreading its great wings to catch her young and then she carries them safely to the nest. It is through this process the young discover the use of their wings and their potential to fly.

At times God stirs up our comfort zones when He knows the time is right for us to take off. Like the young eagle being unaware that they are made to fly, sometimes we too fail to see God’s purpose and direction for our lives until He teaches us to fly through specific situations that He puts us through.

Is God stirring up your nest?  Could this be because He wants to enable you to soar high to know His purpose and plans for Your life?


Dear Lord, I thank You for Your patience in teaching me and helping me discover the greater plans that you have for me. Through every unknown situation of trial I trust that Your mighty wings are beneath me.
