________________________________

As a student pilot I vividly remember my first time “under the hood” for basic instrument training. The process was simple—I placed a giant visor over my eyes to limit my vision to only the instruments in front of me—nothing outside of the airplane! After a disorienting series of turns, my instructor told me to call the airport on the radio and ask them to direct me to the proper landing approach, simulating minimal visibility conditions.

I learned three lessons that day: First, the importance of telling God (or the tower) my situation and my needs—no room for pride or “I’ll do it myself” (Philippians 4:6, 7). Second, I discovered that listening, trusting, and obeying instructions had to be absolute—no latitude for delay, excuses, or rationalization (1 Samuel 15:22)! Third, if I listened to my senses and feelings instead of instructions, I could easily deceive myself and plunge toward disaster (Proverbs 14:12).


Lord, I listen for your voice and desire to do your will. Clearly show me your way and save me from my own determination.
