04 Jun Your Reassurance
One day, we were flying somewhere in the US, and there was crazy turbulence. For the first time, I thought I might die in a plane crash. I held to my seat as we dipped and dove, asking the Lord if it was my time.
I haven’t had many ethereal spiritual experiences, but what happened next was one.
Something in my head spoke to me, telling me I had much to do with my life. From that, I inferred I wasn’t going to die in a plane crash. I became calm.
This morning, as I was reading Acts 27 + 28, I noticed that something similar happened to Paul. When his ship had been caught in a storm for days, the Lord appeared to him, saying, “Don’t be afraid, Paul, for you will surely stand trial before Caesar!” (Acts 27:24)
When Paul and I were afraid, God affirmed what was going to happen instead of what wasn’t going to happen. By knowing what was going to happen, we were able to logically deduce what wasn’t going to happen and, thus, become calm.
Isn’t that a beautiful way to be reassured? How would our days change if, in moments of storm, we envision the good that is going to come instead of the bad we are going to avoid?
