Fly Like An Eagle...

“The wind blows where it lists (pleases), and you hear the sound thereof, but can not tell from where it comes, and to where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”  John 3:8 (comment added)

Our spiritual senses are the key to fully entering into this “New Birth” experience.  Only those who are saved and have developed these spiritual senses can hear and enter.  We may hear and not understand, but it is vital that we respond to this lifting power of His presence.

The comprehension of that which is spiritual is gradually learned, as we move in this realm of the spiritual - “the wind blowing where it pleases.”  We cannot control the realm and movings of the Holy Spirit (divine presence); rather, we are to respond in faith.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

Notice that they are to “mount up with wings.”  These “wings” speak of our (new birth) ability to both respond to the presence of the Lord, and move with Him.  When we sense (are quickened by) the “wind” of the Spirit, we are to spread our wings and begin to ascend into the realms of spiritual life.
