One of the reasons that airplanes crash is due to an invisible, powerful wind shear that suddenly forces a plane downward with such pressure that it cannot recover. The problem with wind shears is that they are difficult to detect. They seemingly come from out of nowhere. This is sort of like the difficulties and issues you face in your life. You are flying along, minding your own business, doing the best you can, then all of a sudden, a “wind shear” impacts you. Some unexpected burst of opposition comes upon you and threatens to make you crash.
Some unexpected burst of opposition comes upon you and threatens to make you crash.
For airplanes, aviation experts have developed a technology to address this. It’s called Doppler radar. This meteorological marvel has the ability to see the unseeable, read it and let incoming pilots know what they have to contend with.
A wise pilot always pays close attention, because he or she understands that the radar can see and understand what they cannot. The pilot would be a fool to trust his or her instincts and ignore the radar. Similarly, you and I would be foolish to trust our instincts and take our focus off of the One who can see the unseeable in our own lives and help us to make sense of that which is targeted at us with the intention to cause us to crash.
Let’s stay connected to each other and to God as we navigate the uncharted air up ahead.
God wants you to keep your focus on Him especially as we enter this new year and to focus on His goodness, rather than on the problems that Satan sends your way. It is only when you keep a kingdom focus that you will experience what it means to live as an overcomer. I want to wish you all God’s best in 2023. Let’s stay connected to each other and to God as we navigate the uncharted air up ahead.
