Blame Cobalt-Lukather for this post in his comment on Perseverance (Yes, Cobalt, I blame you. )
"But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah chapter 40, verse 31.
Let's go straight to the eagles-- yes, we're going to the National Park. JK.
Why did the writer choose eagles for the bird? Majestic beauty? Size? Cuz he knew Americans and those in German-Russian parts of the world were gonna use them in their national symbols? No.
The writer chose eagles, likely, because they can soar on the winds for countless miles. Flying, they have been tracked 125 miles in one day. They'll ride the winds as far as wind will take them, possibly even sleeping as they soar.
Those who give themselves to the Lord are compared here to eagles.

God is with you, and with Him you will live.
So seek Him. Wait on Him, open your heart and mind to Him.
