Asleep In The Tower
One of the most dangerous parts of flying an airplane is the landing. As the plane gets closer to land, there is more air traffic, the weather on the ground may be far worse than the weather at thirty thousand feet (more than five miles up), and the runways may not be clear of other planes. Pilots rely on the air-traffic controller to keep track of all the details so every plane can land safely.
Imagine this: The pilot of an airplane full of passengers sends a message to the controller but nobody answers. This really happened. It was later discovered that the air-traffic controller had fallen asleep at his desk. The good news is that the plane landed safely anyway.
Here’s even better news: God, our ultimate “traffic controller,” never sleeps. We know that from God’s heavenly vantage point, our “help comes from the Lord. ... He will not let you be defeated. He who guards you never sleeps” (Psalm 121:2–3 ICB).
Count on it—God knows what is ahead for you, and He never stops guiding your life. He does this for your good and for His glory (Romans 8:28).
