Soaring is by definition gliding high, and anyone who has ever seen eagles know they do so with spectacular ease. Perhaps this is why God chose them as our model.
Aerodynamics of Soaring
To soar, an eagle needs a headwind, but since this seems opposite of what they should need, I asked my pilot husband to explain. He said that eagles must face into the wind to experience lift. The air currents flow over and under their uniquely formed wings, creating an air pressure difference. As the higher pressure below tries to equalize the lower above, the gliding bird is lifted up. Gradually, though, the eagle will lose altitude, forcing it to land, if not for the added boost of rising air currents, such as warm air and updrafts, or increased wind.
When assisted by these air currents or winds, a gliding eagle can then soar. When God says that we can soar on wings like an eagle, He is not suggesting that we attempt unassisted aerials.
He wants us to soar spiritually in our daily walk with Him. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
How to soar like eagles
Waiting on the Lord for renewed strength is often difficult. In the midst of hardships, the concept of soaring above them can seem impossible. He reminded me, though, that all birds, even eagles, must learn to fly.

The burdens the enemy places on us come in many different forms, each unique to our personal makeup. The good news is we have a God who is more powerful than the enemy. A God who promises to share His strength with us so that we can overcome whatever it is that would weigh us down.
God Helps Us Soar Like an Eagle
Trust in the Lord. And prepare for takeoff. Dan completed his initial Crucible weekend in Christian Standard Bible but those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not faint. They will be strong like eagles soaring upward on wings; they will walk and run without getting tired.
Soaring Like An Eagle (1) - Deut. ; Isaiah
They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak. Holman Christian Standard Bible but those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint. Then they'll soar on wings like eagles; they'll run and not grow weary; they'll walk and not grow tired. They will mount up with wings like eagles.
They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and won't become weary. They will walk and won't grow tired.
