2 Timothy 3:16
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
A record number of turbulent storms have been recorded in recent decades, but that hasn’t stopped people from flying, nor should it. Though experienced pilots don’t relish flying under poor conditions—especially when visibility is zero—they do so confidently because they’ve learned how to rely on their instruments. A pilot with instrument training is better prepared and less confused when the unexpected happens. We Christians can take a lesson from them.
When faced with turbulent times, the Bible provides us with directional skills to stay on course.
Instrument-rated pilots don’t go from merely proficient to skilled overnight, and neither do believers when it comes to using God’s Word to navigate life’s storms. But rest assured, every bit of effort makes headway.
While en route, pilots communicate with air traffic controllers who can see what is out of the pilot’s range of vision. Likewise, the Holy Spirit will use scripture to help you see a bigger picture so that you can move forward with confidence.
On a dark moonless night, John F. Kennedy Jr. and two others were tragically killed when he flew his small plane straight into the ocean. He became confused about his direction and couldn’t discern the difference between sky and ground until it was too late. He mistakenly thought he could successfully make the journey on his own.
Let’s make sure to conquer any self-reliant attitude by relying on the most accurate instrument for life, the perfect Word of God.
Awaiting His return,
