An Eagle’s Joy

Lord, I thank you that when I don’t know what to do, You are the wind in my sails, lifting my wings so that I can soar high, so that I can rise up higher with You, far above all circumstances, perceptions and principalities.  For it is in You and You alone that I find my peace, my strength, my hope and my joy, my freedom!

I will never forget when You came into my room at 6 a.m., one morning, and physically picked me up in your arms, and took me with you to the place where you set your eagles free.  I will never forget how You looked, the wonder of life in Your very eyes, the very essence of the breath of life in each frequency in Your vocals as You spoke to me, the power of life in Your laughter and the force of release in my life as You beckoned me to come look at what You were about to do.  I saw me, as a large eagle, standing on a wood log, like one would use to chop wood for firewood.  I was standing on the wood log, wings closed against my side.  I wore a metal band around my left foot.  It was small but large enough to keep me grounded.

I remember when You said to me, “Watch this.”  You approached the eagle and you simply and so easily, unclipped my left leg.  The metal band around my leg fell off of me and my wings instantly expanded and began to move, I began to rise up and I saw the expansion of my wings as I soared higher and higher.  I remember you Jesus, You stood there with Your hands cupped around your mouth as You began to shout with pure joy, “He whom I have set free, is free indeed!” Your voice became louder and louder with each shout of those very words, “He whom I have set free, is free indeed! He whom I have set free, is free indeed!” Oh Glory to God!!! You released me and set me free.  I will never forget the sounds of the laughter coming forth from You, it was bursting forth from deep inside of You, I could feel the sheer freedom and joy and holiness of this moment with You, Your laughter Jesus, echoed within my being.

My wings began to move faster and so elegantly, I remember watching them, in awe that my wingspan was so large, I had no idea.  I remember looking down at You as You were shouting up to me, “I love to set my people free! I love to set my people free, I will set you free over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.  I love to set my people free! I do not have an issue with setting my people free over and over and over and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over EVEN FROM THE SAME ISSUE! IT IS MY JOY TO SET MY PEOPLE FREE EVEN FROM THE SAME ISSUE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER WITHOUT END, FOR I HAVE PAID THE PRICE TO SET YOU FREE, IT IS MY DELIGHT, IT IS MY JOY, IT IS MY PURE JOY TO SET YOU FREE, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER, EVEN FROM THE SAME ISSUE,  IT IS MY PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM!! I WILL SET YOU FREE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER! IT IS SO EASY FOR ME AND I DO NOT MIND, I PAID THE PRICE, IT IS SO EASY FOR ME TO SET YOU FREE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER, EVEN FROM THE SAME ISSUE!  I DO NOT HAVE ANY ISSUE WITH IT, RELIGIOUS DEVILS AND RELIGIOUS FOLK DO!” and then You were belly laughing with joy at releasing me to soar so very high, filled with pure joy and freedom and oh the very glory and love of Christ inside of my life, my heart, the fabric of who I am.  Oh Jesus, how I love You with all that I am, I cannot express to You how precious You are to me, my King, my Lord, my everything.  I treasure my deliverance and freedom! THANK YOU!

Then I remember You shouted to me, as I was soaring so high up in the heavens, I could hear you even from there, you were declaring to me “DO NOT EVER RETURN TO THIS PLACE OF CAPTIVITY, FOR YOU HAVE BEEN HELD HERE CAPTIVE SO LONG, IT HAS BECOME FAMILIAR TO YOU, DO NOT EVER RETURN TO THIS PLACE OF CAPTIVITY!!!”  You were so happy Jesus, so free, so beautiful and I was soaring so high and still am, because of You Lord! Yay me!!!

John 8:36 KJV  – “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

You alone Lord, have made me free, indeed.
