I heard, “Carried and carried away.”
And I was given two lists, the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22 and the things we are to think on in Philippians 4:8. And I saw a Child of God tucked under a wing and flying high above it all, riding on the beautiful Wings of a majestic Eagle.
“Beloved. What are you focusing your mind on, My Child? Is it the bad reports and the things of this world?
Turn your ears and eyes away from all those things. Come away even from those in your own camp from whose minds and mouths come distortion and fear, dreams and visions and words I have not given them.
Does not My Word say to think on those things which are of good report? Yes, Beloved. Those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of virtue and praise.
Keep your eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of your faith. Let the Fruit of the Spirit sustain you and not words of fear. Sit and rest under the Shadow of My Wings with great delight for My Fruit is sweet to your taste.
Keep your mind on things above and not on earthly things. Here is truth. Your life is hidden with Christ in God. I AM He who sustains you, even to your old age and gray hairs I AM He.
I have made you and I will CARRY you. I AM He who sustains you and rescues you, Dear One. Even in the wilderness, I AM He who carries you as a Father carries His son or daughter.
As an Eagle stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, so I have sent My Spirit to be with you and in you. Fear not, My Child. I AM the same yesterday, today and forever. I spread My Wings to catch you and I carry you on My Pinions.
Those who wait upon The LORD shall renew your strength and you shall rise up on Wings of Eagles and I shall carry you away.
And your God will cover you with His feathers; under His Wings you will find refuge; My faithfulness is a shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day. Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.”
“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you,” Isaiah 46:4.
“and in the wilderness, where the LORD your God CARRIED you, as a man carries his son, all the way by which you traveled until you reached this place,” Deuteronomy 1:31.
“You have seen for yourselves what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself,” Exodus 19:4.
“As an eagle stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, He spread His wings to catch them; He carried them on His pinions,” Deuteronomy 32:11.
“My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away,” Song of Solomon 2:10.
“But those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint,” Isaiah 40:31.
“As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste,” Song of Solomon 2:3.
