In quietness and trust is your strength.
Desert Storm fighter pilot Jeff Patton felt like he was flying his F-15 in a bottle of ink. He was sure he was in a climbing right turn, but his instruments indicated he was in a 60-degree dive. It took every ounce of his willpower to disregard his feelings and trust his instruments.
Jeff jerked his plane out of its dive just three seconds short of crashing into the mountains of Iraq. Trusting his instruments saved his life.
Going our own way and doing our own thing is destined to end in disaster. The only way to safely negotiate our flight through life is to trust God’s guidance: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding” (Prv 3:5).
Trusting God isn’t a shot in the dark;
it is confidence that leads to the light.
