Eagles are among the most amazing creatures that God created. Solomon himself wrote in Proverbs, "There be three things which be too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air..." (Prov. 30:18-19). Eagles are among the largest and most powerful birds in the world. Eagles are #wise
they are careful to avoid danger, unless they come too close to its nest, and pose a threat to their young. Eagles have been noted as symbols of #strength
. Eagles and hawks are said to have the keenest sight of all, and can sight their prey while soaring high in the sky.
So what does this teach us? Firstly, Eagle has the longest life span it can live up to 70 years, but to reach this age the Eagle must make a hard decision. In its 40’s it’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey, which serves as food. It’s long and sharp beak become bent. It’s old aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers become stuck to it’s chest and make it difficult to fly. Then the Eagle is left with only two decisions: to die or to go through a painful process of #change
for 150 days. #transformation
So, the Eagle fly to a mountain top. There the Eagle knocks its beak against a mountain top until it plucks it out. After plucking it out the Eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and it will then pluck out its talons. When it’s new talons grow back, the Eagle starts plucking out its old-aged feathers. After 5 months the Eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for 30 more years.
