But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
This painting was inspired by a series of paintings in which I was focusing on the 4 face angel known as the Seraphim found in Ezekiel in Chapter 1 verse 10. This angel has 4 faces that are symbols that God uses throughout the Scriptures. These symbols often have a teaching or character trait that is associated with them.
In this particular painting 'Soar' is the painting of the face of a wedge-tailed eagle painted on a base of Yellow. This painting was my first of the 4 series and was a painting that came out of a prayer time which rapidly came together. I only painted this painting for about 2 hours from inception to finish.
I feel that this painting is a message for this hour for God's Children to rise up on wings like Eagles and soar as Isaiah Chapter 40 verse 31 says. With a world that is in turmoil, chaos and filled with metaphorical storms this is the call to rise up and soar about the storms of life and to see from a new perspective, a God perspective, a Heavenly seated place perspective.
So be encouraged as you look into the eye of the Eagle and be inspired to Soar again in your life.
