In everything we do there will always be things to challenge our inner strength. The strength of the eagle is in his wings. Therefore, his strength is physical. But he is able to use that strength to defeat his challengers. Our challengers are of a mental strength. The way we deal with them is on an intellectual and spiritual level. We must have a force within our spiritual being that will enable us to endure and to persevere in times of hardships and persecutions.
For me and many others, we gain that strength through prayer. Therefore, during our difficult times, when facing our challengers, we don't give up. Instead, we mount up! And we defeat our challengers. We succeed..
"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles: they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31) K.J.V
