We often live our lives on auto-pilot. We're just going through the motions...get up, kids to school, off to work, do the laundry, make dinner. Or worse, living like we're the pilot. Oh, we let God have co-pilot status, assisting us when we need it. But when we crash? Suddenly we realize we're not qualified to pilot. We want another pilot to take the wheel and bring us to safety.
I suspect the next time I take a flight, I still won't know the name of the pilot, or his resume. But I do know the name of the one who didn't just save 155 lives, but who gives all who confess and believe in him eternal life. I do know the "resume" of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and the man who performed real miracles.
His name is Jesus. And I want Him to be my pilot.
Psalm 77:14 -- You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
2 Kings 19:15 -- LORD God of Israel, your throne is above the winged creatures. You created the heavens and the earth, and you alone rule the kingdoms of this world.
Job 37:15, 16 -- Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?
