An Eagle's Swoop
Soul Snack 115/12 ... An Eagle's Swoop
Eagles are the undisputed warriors and veterans of the skies.
Upon their wings are the graces and judgements of God. They are the divinely appointed instruments to do His bidding. They swoop and they kill, they stand and they clean.
Unlike vultures they do not tarry waiting for death to their prey for they carry it. The terror of their beaks and the snare of their talons deliver no escape.
The eyes of the eagle scan both the horizon in front and the earth below. From its supreme vantage in the heavens its prey only has a canopy of vulnerability.
With the might of its wings, the speed of its flight and the courage of its intentions eagles prevail.
As an eagle swiftly snatches an unsuspecting rodent so does the Lord's Day dawn.
As the rays of the Lord's Day rise both grace and judgement will fall unhindered from its wings.
There are no parts of the earth's sky an eagle can't fly, there is no place below it will miss. There is no escape.
The swoop of the eagle is the swoop of God.
This is what the Lord says; 'Look! An eagle is swooping down, spreading its wings...' Jer 48:40
You can't bend your head to miss the eagle's swoop but you can bend your knees to avoid it.
