Proverbs 3:6 (New International Version)
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Do you ever wish you had a roadmap for living? Maybe a blueprint, A tweet or even an Email?
If only someone could occasionally show us a way to go, a direction to take, we wouldn't feel so unsure of which path to pursue. We think that, with only a little guidance, we would end up in the right place.
Passengers on a regular flight from Detroit to Tri-City Airport (which is between the Michigan cities of Saginaw, Bay City and Midland), must have felt a little more than lost during the flight attendant's greeting as their flight commenced. She welcomed the passengers and stated that the destination would be Midland. A few concerned passengers alerted her to the mistake, so the flight attendant, obviously not familiar with the area, corrected herself by saying that they would be landing in "Tri-City" and Bay City.
Chuckles rippled along the aisle as she bravely tried again. This time she informed passengers that they would be landing in Saginaw. Now laughter broke out.
At that point, an authoritative voice came over the intercom and rescued her. "I'm your pilot, folks," he said, "and don't worry -- I know where we're going."
It's nice when someone knows the way. And there is wisdom in seeking help when necessary. Other people can be valuable resources.
But we cannot always depend on others for the important answers for living our lives. In the end, nobody can point us to all the best solutions for life's problems; nobody else can steer us along the path that is just right for us. We find that way by listening to God. We find the way by reading God’s word.
So if you feel a bit lost, don't worry. This may be a perfect time to listen to what God is telling you. And remember -- your Pilot knows where you're going.
Dear Lord we pray that we would listen to Your still small voice. We thank You for being our pilot and that You know where we are going. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
