Turbulence is good

Apparently, turbulence is what nervous fliers fear the most when they board an aircraft.

Imagine being on an airplane that is cruising at about 35000 feet and the plane is acting like it would drop any second. it’s funny how lots of people get super religious at this moment even when they blatantly reject the Saviour.

Turbulence has been termed to be “spiller of drinks,filler of barf bags, jostler of luggage, rattler of nerves” .

However, should it be crasher of planes?

You are probably wondering what I am driving at. Turbulence huh?

Well, Life is not a bed of roses is a very common saying and whoever came up with this must have really lived life

It definitely is not a bed of roses.

People go through challenges, left, right and center.

Thankfully, we can ALWAYS run to our saviour for help.

Trials and life’s drama should bring you close(r) to Jesus

Sometimes turbulence( trials) hits your airplane (life) and it feels like God is not there. It feels like He can’t hear or is sleeping.. Well thankfully He hears and  never sleeps. Behold, “He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 121:4 (NKJV)

However, when you feel like that.Remember that those all feelings and not factual. Therefore,pick your self up and draw near to HIM.

Don’t let your plane crash because of some small turbulence.

Successful  people today ( not just financially ) survived because they did not allow the turbulence of life crash their plane.

By faith they survived.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3(NKJV)

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; 10 for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child,when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. Hebrew 11:8-12(NKJV)

By faith Abraham survived life. So stop worrying and focus on what God has told you. Stop worrying about your tomorrow. Ignore the turbulence and Focus on the ALL MIGHTY!

Oh and Abraham was a real man that lived in real life. Ask the Jews!

God did not consult you to create the universe and He did a great job. Therefore calm down because He is doing a great job with your life.

Like He has done with the people who have gone before you.

The lord, He is God!

If you don’t know Jesus and the turbulence is killing you? Get to know him and allow Him pilot you.

When He pilots you, life’s turbulence has got nothing on you.

Because, He is a God.

Jesus loves you so much.

Trust Him.
