A businessman was late for his flight. He reached the boarding gate just before it closed.
Sweating and out of breath, he scanned his boarding pass at the counter and quickly made his way to the plane.
Arriving at his seat, he greeted his companions a middle-aged woman sitting at the window. And a little girl sitting on the aisle seat.
After stowing his bag above, he took his place between them.
When the flight took off, he began a conversation with the little girl. She appeared to be about the same age as his daughter and was busy with her colouring book.
He asked her a few usual questions, such as her age (8), her hobbies (cartoons and drawing).
As well as her favourite animal (horses are pretty, but she just loved cats).
He found it strange that such a young girl would be travelling alone. But he kept his thoughts to himself and decided to keep an eye on her to make sure she was okay.
About an hour into the flight, the plane suddenly began experiencing extreme turbulence. The pilot came on over the PA system. And he told everyone to fasten their seat belts and remain calm, as they had encountered rough weather.
Some of the passengers panicked. Others were screaming.
Meanwhile, the little girl was sitting quietly and looked unworried. Her colouring book and crayons were put away in the seat pocket in front of her. And her hands were calmly resting on her legs. Incredibly, she didn’t seem worried at all.
Then, just as suddenly as it had begun, the turbulence ended. The pilot came on a few minutes later to apologize for the bumpy ride and to announce that they would be landing soon.
As the plane began its descent, the man said to the little girl,
“You are just a little girl, but I have never met a braver person in all my life! Tell me, dear, how is it that you remained so calm while all of us adults were so afraid?”
Looking him in the eyes, she said,
“My FATHER is the PILOT, He’s Taking Me HOME; DADDY KNOWS I AM HERE.”
If you Recognise the Power and capacity of God who is the Pilot of our destinies, you won’t lose your peace for anything. Even when it appears to be turbulent.
Isn’t it amazing that God who is flying you in the plane is also in control of the stormy weather that you’re afraid of? You’ll be landing safely in one peace.
Say to yourself DADDY KNWS I’M HERE…
When you really understand what length daddies go to secure their families, you’d understand that God does even much more to secure and provide for us no matter what.
