  2. About the Eagle
    • Birth & Nature
      • Mate in air 
      • Eagles hatch open on high mountains or high trees
      • Distinct from every other bird
      • John 3:3; Ephesians 1:20-23; 2:5-6 
      • Places us at a seat of dominion 
    • Food
      • Feed on fresh meat (Feed daily in God’s word to manifest your dominion)
        • You are what you eat
      • Hunt for live food
      • Deuteronomy 8:3; Hebrews 4:12
    • Vision
      • Eagles have the strongest vision in animal kingdom
      • Very focused; not distracted (Be focused on Jesus)
      • Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]—blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.” (AMPC); Hebrews 12:2
    • Company
      • Flock with eagles (sense of dominance when they are together and are inspired)
      • Never mingle with other birds – have different types of friends
        • Have giants in your life to push you and draw you up 
        • Same level to encourage and support you
        • Timothys of the world that you can pour yourself into 
      • Ephesians 5:5-7; 1 Cor. 15:33
    • Fights
      • Use beaks and claws to defend and attack
      • Take on any size of animal in a fight – fight to the bitter end
      • Eph 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (use the word of God)
      • When a crow attacks, eagles soar to a high altitude 
      • At a very high attitude, a crow loses its breath – put devil in disarray
    • Shedding Off
      • Retreat to high mountains to molt under the bright sun (draw energy from the sun)
      • Older eagles bring food to them in their weakened state
      • If they survive this period, they become renewed and stronger
      • Isaiah 40:30-31; Malachi 4:2
  3. Fear of Leaving the Nest
    • Parent eagles turn thorns inward to cause discomfort
    • Pushes eaglet out and rescues  as he/she approaches the ground until he/she can fly
    • Remain an eaglet if you stay in the nest
    • Reasons why we stay in our nest: (Things that limit us from experiencing our dominion)
      • Comfort zone (Acts 8)
      • Satisfaction instead of contentment
      • Afraid of change
      • Negative past experiences and mistakes
      • Spirit of fear or satanic stronghold  
  4. Waiting on Jesus 
    • Isaiah 40:30-31 ‘Even youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.’ (AMP) 
    • If you don’t know how to wait in the Lord, you will not be able to express your dominion
    • Dimensions of ‘Wait’
      • Trust and hope in Jesus – Psalm 27:14; 37:7
      • Eyes fixed on Jesus – Psalm 123:2
      • Attentive for His instructions John 5:19
      • Spend time with God (be a Mary, not a Martha)
      • Shed off excuses
  5. Wind of the Spirit
    • Proverbs 30:18-19 
    • He is within us
    • His leading is to lift us high
    • He empowers us to manifest our dominion in Jesus –  Acts 2:1-2 
    • Changes you from an ordinary person to an extraordinary person
  6. Conclusion 
    • Go into 2021 with God’s direction 
    • Rely and rest on Him to empower you to express your dominion in Christ Jesus
    • PRAYER:  This year, 2021, I soar in dominion.
