Psalm 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
I recall one time taking a flight from Jacksonville, Florida into Chicago’s O’Hara Airport and from there to Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford Airport. It was evening by the time I was ready to land at my final destination and very dark. On the last leg of my flight, I was riding in the front seat of a smaller plane. The cockpit door was open so I could see exactly what the pilots were able to see. Over Lake Michigan, it was total darkness. Then, as we began to get closer to the shores of Michigan, I started to see a little light off in the distance. The closer we got to the airport, and the city of Grand Rapids, the brighter the light was getting. Then, as I looked ahead, I could see two rows of lights, which would guide us to a safe landing at our destination and once again back onto solid ground. The tower told the pilots how to approach these lights, what the weather was like, and helped them maneuver to the runway. The closer to the ground we got, the brighter the lights became. Finally, we were on the ground and safe.
The Bible to me is very much like those runway lights. As long as I keep the light of God’s Word in view, aim my path toward it, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, I know I am going to be all right. Refuse to listen, and I am in trouble. If I think the lights are misleading and go my own way, I will end up on unstable ground. However, if I will watch The Light, Trust in the High Tower, eventually He will help me land on streets of Gold.
In John 8:12 Jesus said “… I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” The Light of LIFE. Head toward the Light. JESUS! Trust in the LORD. He will guide you safely Home.
