The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
1, The exceedingly pleasing way an eagle fly in the air;
2. The agile and easy way a snake makes it way through barricade & obstructions;
3. The way a ship floats & slices the sea beautifully; and,
4. The way a man wins a maid by love & attentiveness to her….
Wish we could fly like an eagle…see all things below with the keen eye view of an eagle…wish we could walk through difficulties like a wise serpent but harmless as a dove….wish we could swim the water(symbol for people) nicely and fast like a ship, like the Captain did walk on the sea of Galilee…
But those who wait on 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.
In the Bible God’s people are often compared to many different things in nature. For instance God compared his people to branches in a vine, a light on a hill, sheep, salt in the world, soldiers in the battlefield against satan, runners towards the goal and many other similes and metaphors.
Isaiah as we have noted previously compared
God’s people to an eagle.
those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
The eagle is the king of birds. Jehovah God is our eagle father and mother. In the Bible God is compared both to a father and a mother. And we begin our Christian life like the little baby eagles. And then we reach the point where we soar on wings high up into the heavens. That is our ultimate goal.
the way of a serpent upon a rock; means when we walk through the wilderness(difficulties, problems,tears)
Matthew 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the HOLY SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil.
Holy Spirit only leads Jesus to the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
Jesus son of God when he was human in this earth also have undergone all kind of temptations but he succeeded all the temptations made by the satan.
Just as gold and silver are refined and purified by fire…Zech 13:9
Our faith should be tested by God. Abraham is called as father of faith. Abraham also tested by God to give his only son Isaac to God at his 17 years old. He was born to Abraham at his 100th year. Abraham ready to give Isaac to God. But at the last time God interrupt Abraham and bless him and all his descendants.
If Your life is wilderness and if you go through the problems,and tears, be happy and always rejoice in God. Let the Satan be get shamed and run away from you and God be thou glorified. Instead never make the God to be sad for your own problems. If you do it satan will take advantage of it. Loser and sufferer will be ours
the way of a ship in the midst of the sea;
Our life is a short span of time 60 – 80 Years, maximum 120 years. Our life is a ship which travels across the sea. This life ship time count down starts at the time of our birth. This life ship have only two destinations 1. HEAVEN OR 2. HELL. My Life ship was riding towards the hell but when Jesus get into my ship, it was taken a reverse gear, U TURN and starts riding towards heaven. Allow Jesus enter into your life your heart.
Luke 5:1-3 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people CROWDING AROUND HIM AND LISTENING TO THE WORD OF GOD, he saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. HE GOT INTO ONE OF THE BOATS, THE ONE BELONGING TO SIMON, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.Luke 5:4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “PUT OUT INTO DEEP WATER, and let down the nets for a catch.”” Simon answered, “MASTER, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”Luke 5:6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.Luke 5:7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.Luke 5:8 When SIMON PETER saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, LORD; I am a sinful man!” Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.”Luke 5:9 For he and ALL HIS COMPANIONS WERE ASTONISHED at the catch of fish they had taken
The whole night Simon peter and his companions were working hard in the sea and haven’t caught even one fish, But when Simon allows Jesus into his boat, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
When Jesus enters into your heart, Your heart filled with Joy and peace. And Change will happen inside your heart that you will experience. All Your evil characters will changed into a good one.
and the way of a man with a maid.

In that Party, people astonished to see one particular couple, young beautiful rich girl married a face full of stripes man who was so ugly to see. Some peoples in the party let her alone and asked, “You are so beautiful, how come you married with this man. She started crying and said,
