Multiple times recently as I was driving, the Lord highlighted to me the symbol on a particular brand of vehicle. I am sure you have seen it – a square-ish “O” with what looks like wings in it. It seemed that every time I looked at a vehicle it had this logo on it! The first few times I just thought maybe this particular vehicle brand had just gained popularity, but then it happened so many times I realized the Lord was speaking! I finally asked Him, “What are you trying to show me?”
Meditating on this symbol, I tried to prophetically understand what I was seeing. Did the circle stand for eternity? What about the wings? Was it a symbol of freedom, rising above, or a bird? Maybe an eagle? I finally decided it was an eagle, since prophets are symbolized with this bird of prey. It was then I heard the Lord say, “Eagle: Go FLY!” I thought this interesting, because the name of my monthly prophetic school in Houston is “Learning to FLY” School of the Prophetic. I decided to look up the meaning of the name of this particular brand to see if there was a meaning hidden within it. God loves to surprise us with the nuggets that He hides inside of names of people and places, if we will just dig to find them. I call it “God’s easter-egg hunt”. He hides things FOR us, not FROM us!
Then, last night on the way home, I saw a pickup truck that was all lit up! It had trailer lights on it, not just on the back, but down the sides and around the rear window. I was in awe of this spectacle since it was so unusual! I watched it intently as it paraded in front of me at a traffic light and disappeared down the road. More traffic followed it, so I eventually lost sight of it. After a little while I forgot about the lit-up pick-up, and simply sat at the light, waiting for it to change.
Shortly thereafter, it did, and I turned to head home. As I drove down the street, I noticed that this very pickup, the one with all the lights on it, was directly in front of me! I couldn’t believe it! Quite a few minutes had passed, and a lot of Houston traffic, and yet STILL, somehow – this truck was directly in front of me!
I knew God was up to something. At the next traffic light the lit-up pick-up’s tailgate was at eye level. I saw something unusual about the tail gate of the lit-up pick-up. My jaw dropped as I realized, much to my surprise, this truck’s logo was not a typical ram or a chevron or an oval, but an EAGLE! The owner of this lit-up pick-up had removed the original logo of this vehicle, and in its place was a Flying Eagle!
Stunned, I got as close as I could without bumping the rear end of this truck to try to see the Eagle as closely as possible. This eagle was poised to attack, wings spread wide as brakes to catch the air, ready to snatch its prey up with its talons. Knowing the Lord was speaking, I pondered this in my heart, and headed home.
God wastes nothing! This morning, the Lord reminded me of the other symbol, the circle with the wings in it. On this company’s website* was an article about how this logo came into being. I laughed as I read that it stood for the “god of harmony, intelligence and wisdom”. It also said that the wings stand for “growth”, “improvement”, to “pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous growth”, and “flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience”.
I have been asking the Lord for blueprints and strategies. This sounds like a strategy and a blueprint to me! God was passing out instructions, Eagles! Here is your command: EAGLE – Go FLY! You have been endued with POWER from on-high (see Luke 24:49). Much like the logo of the vehicle God showed me, you have been given the fruit of the Spirit according to Galations 5:22-23:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”
The eagle on the back of the lit-up pick-up was ready to pounce on its prey. The talons of the eagle are to be used for the PREY of the eagle and its enemies! An eagle’s talons are not intended as weapons to be used against other eagles; rather, they are to be used as tools, to hunt and to produce food. A pick-up truck symbolizes a working ministry, and this one was all lit-up and completely unique, emblazoned with the symbol of the eagle. This was God speaking clearly about His lit-up ones – the burning ones, the shining ones – the unique ones: His Eagles!.
His instructions to His eagles are clear: EAGLE – Go FLY! The God of all harmony (see Romans 15:5), intelligence (see Romans 11:34) and Wisdom (see Proverbs 8:12) instructs us to pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous Kingdom growth by flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience.
That sounds like a Kingdom strategy to me! God has spoken! He has given us instructions. Now follow them, and Eagle – Go FLY!
