But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. Isaiah 40:31, NLT
In her classic book, The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, Hannah Whitall Smith wrote, “Is there no way, then, of escape for us when in trouble or distress? Must we just plod wearily through it all, and look for no relief? I rejoice to answer that there is a glorious way of escape for every one of us, if we will but mount up on wings and fly away from it all to God. All creatures that have wings can escape from every snare that is set for them if only they will fly high enough, and the soul that uses its wings can always find a sure ‘way of escape’ from all that can hurt or trouble it.”
Because Jesus Christ is our eternal hope, we can mount up to Him on the wings of eagles—surrendering every situation into His hands and trusting Him with every issue. He will bless us from now until eternity and usher us into everlasting blessings to follow.
We might name our wings the wings of Surrender and of Trust. Hannah Whitall Smith
