When we think about flying high, we are probably flying on an airplane or another aircraft or doing something we aren’t supposed to do but when we accept Christ as our personal savior, that is how we, as Christians, are able to live. We are able to fly high because of the sacrifices of Christ and all the potential and possibilities that He gives us including restoration and newness: “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
Anything and everything that this world takes away from us, it will be given back to us: ”Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38). There have been many stories told about how the world took away but in the end, God gave much more back, in return, for the faithfulness exhibited and this is just one of the promises of God: “That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee” (Deuteronomy 30:3).
Flying high does not mean that there are never any problems or the road does not become bumpy. While air travel is rather safe and preferred by many travelers, this does not mean that there are never any problems. In fact, when someone travels by air, there is sometimes turbulence and there have been different stories of planes going missing or crashing. However, despite the risk of air travel, much of the world still trusts this method of travel but unfortunately, many people do not treat God in the same manner.
Scripture is clear about many things especially about trusting in the Lord: ”Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). When we trust in the Lord, there is nothing that we have to fear for no weapon formed against us will prosper (Isaiah 54:17) but we also do not have to fear or be afraid as God is with us through all things: “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me” (Psalm 56:3-4).
No, not all times will be good and trouble will sometimes find us but regardless of what we face and the troubles that we are up against, we do not have to fear the outcome for God has already taken care of it. When we trust in God, we find freedoms and liberties that cannot be found anywhere else or in anything else and when we rest our hope and trust in God, we are able to fly high and rest in the peace of God: “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass” (Psalm 37:7).
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”–Proverbs 3:5-6
