I know quite a few people that God speaks to through "signs" in their everyday life. I'm finding that Edie Bayer is one of these people. Throughout her day, God simply speaks to her and gives her fresh revelation for the Body of Christ.
This should also be an encouragement to all of us that...God is always speaking!

The Symbol of the Flying Eagle
Multiple times recently as I was driving, the Lord highlighted to me the symbol on a particular brand of vehicle. You might have seen it—a squarish "O" with what looks like wings in it. It seemed that every time I looked at a vehicle, it had this logo on it! The first few times I thought maybe this particular vehicle brand had just gained popularity, but then it happened so many times, I started to realize the Lord was speaking! I finally asked Him, "What are You trying to show me?"
Meditating on this symbol, I tried to prophetically understand what I was seeing. Did the circle stand for eternity? What about the wings? Was it a symbol of freedom, rising above, or a bird? Maybe an eagle? I finally came to the conclusion that God was talking to me about eagles. It was then that I heard the Lord say, "Eagle, GO FLY!" I thought this interesting, because the name of my monthly prophetic school in Houston is called "Learning to FLY" School of the Prophetic.
Following the Lights
Then, that same evening on the way home, I saw a pickup truck that was all lit up! It had trailer lights on it—not just on the back, but down the sides and around the rear window. I was in awe of this spectacle since it was so unusual! I watched intently as it paraded in front of me at a traffic light and then disappeared down the road. More traffic followed it, so I eventually lost sight of it. After a little while I forgot about the lit-up pickup and simply sat at the light, waiting for it to change. Shortly thereafter it did, and I turned to head home. As I drove down the street, I noticed that this very pickup, the one with all the lights on it, was directly in front of me! I couldn't believe it! Quite a few minutes had passed as well as a lot of Houston traffic, and yet STILL, somehow this truck was directly in front of me!
I knew God was up to something. At the next traffic light the lit-up pickup's tailgate was at eye level and I saw something unusual about the tailgate. My jaw dropped as I realized—much to my surprise—this truck's logo was not a typical ram or a chevron or an oval, but an EAGLE! The owner of this lit-up pickup had removed the original logo of this vehicle, and in its place was a flying eagle!
Stunned, I got as close as I could without bumping the rear end of this truck to try to see the eagle as closely as possible. This eagle was poised to attack, wings spread wide as brakes to catch the air, ready to snatch its prey up with its talons. Knowing the Lord was speaking, I pondered this in my heart and headed home.
You Have Been Endued with Power from On High!
God wastes nothing! On a recent morning the Lord reminded me of the other symbol—the circle with the wings in it. When looking up the website for the company that manufactures this symbol, I found an article about how this logo came into being. I laughed as I read that it stood for the "god of harmony, intelligence and wisdom." It also said that the wings stand for "growth and improvement", to "pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous growth", and "flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience". I have been asking the Lord for blueprints and strategies. This sounds like a strategy and a blueprint to me!
God is passing out instructions, eagles! Here is your command: "EAGLE, GO FLY!" You have been endued with POWER from on high (see Luke 24:49). Much like the logo of the vehicle God showed me, you have been given the fruit of the Spirit according to Galatians 5:22-23: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."
The eagle on the back of the lit-up pickup was ready to pounce on its prey. The talons of the eagle are to be used for the PREY of the eagle and its enemies—snakes! An eagle's talons are not intended as weapons to be used against other eagles; rather, they are to be used as tools, to hunt and to produce food. The pickup truck symbolizes a working ministry, and this one was all lit-up and completely unique; emblazoned with the symbol of the eagle. This was God speaking clearly about His lit-up ones, the burning ones, the shining ones, the unique ones: His eagles.
His instructions to His eagles are clear: "EAGLE, GO FLY!" The God of all harmony, intelligence and wisdom instructs us to pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous Kingdom growth through flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience (see Romans 15:5, Romans 11:34, Proverbs 8:12).
That sounds like a Kingdom strategy to me! God has spoken! He has given us instructions. Now follow them, and eagle, GO FLY! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
