LIFE LESSONS FROM NATURE – Principles of an Eagle : Principle No (9)
So, we were supposed to stop at the 8th principle as written by Dr. Myles Munroe but I got inspired and added a 9th principle which I believe is very important and can be applied in all facets of our lives, seeing as we fight different battles daily.
When engaged in battle with its enemy the snake, the Eagle knows that it’s place of POWER is its HIGH ALTITUDE and PLACE OF REST.
So the eagle does not fight the snake on the ground. It picks it up into the sky and changes the battle ground, and then it releases the snake into the sky. The Eagle knows that the higher it goes, the thinner the air for the snake which soon begins to suffocate. It becomes useless, weak and vulnerable unlike on the ground where it is powerful, wise, cunning and deadly.
Because you’re like the eagle – you’re seated with Christ in the heavenly place far above the limits of survival of serpents (principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual hosts of wickedness in high places).
Lesson No 9 From the Eagle:
Take your fight into the spiritual heavenly realm by praying in the spirit and when you are in the spiritual realm, God puts you at rest (you’re seated) and then He takes over your battles with the serpent and chokes it to death on your behalf.
You’re already victorious against the serpent because of your altitude – if you live in the heavenly places permanently and only visit earth daily like the eagle.
Don’t fight the enemy in his comfort zone, change the battle ground like the eagle to your comfort zone.
