I was quite in shock at what the Lord was speaking to me. First of all when the Cowboys were eliminated from the playoffs I had lost all interest in watching football. That was until January 20th when the Lord spoke to me. I want you to read the word and then we can begin to unpack it all just as the Lord did for me.
When the Eagles win know that my army is now positioned and authorized to be released! My eagles are going to devour the snakes. Children of mine know that you will now feast upon that which attempted to destroy you. What you gained in the last season was that which is of me is eternal and cannot be destroyed. My Church cannot be stopped or constrained. What you now understand is that My Kingdom and the citizens of this Kingdom are unshakeable and unstoppable. I am on their side.
You will now feed upon what tried to overtake you and destroy you. It has turned in your favor, the scales have been tipped, and the righteous are rewarded. What has pursued you, you will now pursue. You will recover all and more. You are stronger now but you are also wiser. You understand the importance of an ongoing communion with me, You have returned to your first love.
I can't tell you how excited I was in hearing these words from Him. Not only for me personally but for His Bride. The word Eagles was in plural form. This was a corporate army coming forth. This was His dearly beloved Bride that He was referring to. He was speaking to both you and I.
I then began to see a vision of many eagles soaring and as they were in flight they could see the enemy. In their seeing they were able to attack the enemy. I watched as they swept down and grabbed up many snakes and then devoured them. Let me tell you that this was no pretty sight. I do not like snakes and that is nothing that I want to see! It continued to play over and over in my mind until I received the message and wrote it all down. Thank God that image stopped.
The eagles were soaring above and the enemy was no where near them! They were attacking the snakes and the enemy had no chance. As I watched this take place I began to be very excited about what the Lord was saying to us. He then began to give me scriptures about what He was showing me and I began to pray into this word. The first one is found in Psalms 23:5.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil;
My cup overflows. (AMP)
God has prepared a place for you right in the midst of the enemy's attacks. The plans of the enemy have been thwarted and its all about to turn in your favor. Payday is here Bride of Christ! Don't give up now because you are on the threshold of a righteous and weighty reward. It's here! All the places that the enemy has opposed will now be blessed and favored by the Lord. Watch and see! God does not lie Church and He is neither mocked nor forgetful of His promises. You can take Him at His word!
Now I want to share a pretty amazing confirmation of this word from Him. The next thing I do after receiving these words from Him is begin searching to find out who is going to the Superbowl or where all that was since I haven't been watching. And to my surprise the very next day is Sunday and there would be a game with a team called the Eagles who would win a spot in the Superbowl! I could not believe how quickly the Lord was confirming His word. The word God gave said "when the Eagles win!" I knew He was saying that this game would be an outward sign of this word coming to pass very soon for all of us.
I told my husband and a few friends what the Lord had been speaking to my heart and we couldn't wait to see His sign! We even joked about how we should bet on the Eagles for the win but that was stated all in good fun. We knew that God would perform His word and we believed Him. On Superbowl Sunday we all knew that the eagles were going to win but that wasn't even all that happened on that day.
My family and I didn't even watch the Superbowl game. We caught the very end of the game at the 4th quarter. I know that sounds strange until you hear about this next part of what all transpired that day.Sunday after church we were all eating lunch and watching Facing the Giants. I wanted my children to finally watch this movie with us and it felt like the perfect time. We had tried several other times but for some reason it just never worked out. Timing is everything.
Maybe you remember this movie. it was one of my favorite inspirational films. I had forgotten that the team that played in that movie were named the Eagles, but God sure didn't. I sat there watching in awe of God and how clearly He wanted me to hear and see this word. I watched as the underdog team overtook the Champion team with God on their side. My whole family cheered and praised God in that moment! That's when my husband I thought of the Superbowl game. We rushed to turn it on just in time to see the game starting in the 4th quarter and sure enough we watched them win!
It was so exhilarating that I was literally flying around my living room when they won...may sound odd to some but I was in the spirit and flying on the word of the Lord. We all felt the joy and the presence of God in the room. That is just how we do it at the Verver home! I can remember my whole body inside and out on fire. I could not stop flapping my wings as if I were an eagle soaring in that moment! It all sounds funny now but it was a very powerful moment. One my family wont forget! I'm telling you my spirit is still soaring from the word of the Lord and it wont be stopping anytime soon. His word is true!
I want to end with this. At the end of Facing the Giants, there is a part of the movie that the Lord highlighted to us. In the coaches home and on top of his mantle stood two championship trophies. And right in the middle of both trophies was a picture that said these words. The underdog team won against the Champions because God was with them and they gave Him all the glory!
But Jesus looked at them and said, 'With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible." ( Matthew 19:26 AMP)
What is being ignited in us is a faith and belief in God that will cause us to soar. We will know and understand that all things are possible with God. Impossible is nothing for Him. There is nothing that is too hard for our God! Get ready because you have your wings, the wind is coming, and you are taking flight in this next season that is here now. Fly Eagles Fly! God is with you, in you, and on your side. An army of angelic hosts are with us and we will see that those who have waited upon the Lord will not only run but soar to unbelievable heights!
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. ( Is. 40:31 AMP)
