Exodus 19:4

"You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself." Exodus 19:4

John MacArthur's Commentary on this beautiful verse: With a most appropriate metaphor, God described the Exodus and the journey to Sinai. Eagles were known to have carried their young out of the nests on their wings and taught them to fly, catching them when necessary on their outspread wings. Moses, in his final song, employed this metaphor of God's care for Israel and especially noted that there was only one Lord who did this. (Deut. 32:11-12)

I have seen the good hand of the Lord in my life and truly can I say "Great is thy faithfulness".
