Inside every airplane are instruments that are critical to flying the aircraft. The instruments will give a true reading of how the aircraft is flying, even if a pilot’s mind may tell him differently.
On a clear, sunny day a pilot may not need some of these instruments, but at night during a storm or in poor visibility, these instruments become vital to his survival. The pilot has to completely trust what his instruments are telling him despite what he sees of feels. Many planes have crashed because the pilot became disoriented and failed to trust his instruments.
Proverbs 3:5-6Amplified Bible (AMP)
5 Trust in and rely confidently on the LORD with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6 [a] In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
Someone said, “Worry never works and trust remains a must!”
The antidote for worry is to put our full trust in God even when it does not make sense. We fail to trust God because we get overwhelmed by what we see on the outside. The situation and circumstances seem to tell a different story and because we are accustomed to rely on our 5 senses we believe what we see and thus we get worried and anxious even though the word of God tells us otherwise.
A pilot must be trained to fly the plane using the instruments only without depending on his other senses. The instruments will get him to safety when there is bad weather. The same is true for us. God and His word are the instruments we should really on to get us to safety. Sometimes it may appear like God is leading you right in the midst of the storm and the tendency is to worry and try work out things in your own understanding. Trust in Him and his word with all your heart. Do not lean on your own understanding, trust the instruments. Acknowledge God in all you do, recognize Him as supreme and if you do that He will make your path straight… No worries!
