Here are my notes from a TV program by Tak Bhana (web site: http://www.running with fire.co.nz)
Lessons from an eagle:
1. Eagles catch the wind drafts of the spirit – they soar high on the wind beneath our wings. Wait on God…then rise on wings like eagles.
“It’s not by might, nor by power, but by God’s Spirit.”
2. Eagles love storms. They use the air pressure of the storm to go high… and this a lesson for all of us. How can I use this obstacle/adversity in my life to go higher?. Look for the storm, but don’t rely on your own strength to get though it. Remember God is with you in the eye of the storm. We will come out of it in a better place than when we into the storm. You will fly higher, as the Holy Spirit gives us the strength to ovecome adversity in our lives.
3. Don’t eat dead things, as eagles only eat fresh prey.
Keep off the dead stuff, unlike vultures
Your walk with God needs to be fresh – a new beginning with new revelations. Listen to His? voice!
4. Eagles circle for some time before attacking their prey. Wait for the right time to attack, to launch your product or idea on the market. Then come back with the spoils of victory.
Learn from history – which battles to fight…and which ones to walk away from.
5. Eagles have tremendous vision from up on high.
“Without a vision the people perish.”
6. Eagles go to great lengths to teach their young what they’ve learnt: ie. how to fly, they teach and mentor their young well. Share and pass it on – a vital lesson for humankind
Have faith. “Faith is the currency of God.”
“Lord, I don’t understand what I’m going through, but I trust you in this situation. I know that with You, I’ll come out OK. Like the storm, this too shall pass.”

“Eagles may soar high, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines!”
