Paul wrote, “I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that [Christ] is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to Him,” (2 Timothy 1:12).
The airplane I was traveling home on was enveloped in thick, dense clouds. All of the passengers had become silent as the aircraft bucked and heaved in the dark sky. As we neared the airport, I caught fleeting glimpses of the earth below, but I still felt a long way from home.
I thought about the faith the passengers had placed in the training and skill of the pilot and crew. We had not hesitated to place our lives in their hands.
Thousands of people all over the world place the same trust in airline crews every day. We routinely place our lives in the hands of mere mortals. So, why do we sometimes find it so difficult to entrust our lives to the care of our loving God? Our supreme pilot longs to safely guide each of us home.
Can we find the courage to entrust our lives to our Creator?
