NOTAM 1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Growing up, I had a hero pilot in my life who seemed to know everything. He was the person I trusted with my life, the one who always had the right answers. I trusted him with blind faith. I would climb into a plywood box with wings if he told me it was ok. To this day, his natural talent as a pilot amazes me. He could get into any airplane and fly it with no instruction. It was as if he was one with the airplane.

This hero pilot was my father. I knew that if I were in an airplane with him I could do anything, go anywhere and he would be there to guide, protect and direct my every move. I could not fail with him in the cockpit by my side.

Think about the Lord and His presence with us, His guidance to us, His ever enduring love.

Have you ever flown with a hero pilot? If so, and flying with your hero pilot made you feel like you could conquer anything, just imagine what you can do with the Lord by your side. He is with you every step of the way. You must walk in that faith and assurance every moment of your life. He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

5T’s: Use these questions to evaluate yourself in relation to today’s reading.

  • Time: Where are you spending your time?
  • Talent: What are you doing with the talents God has given you?
  • Treasure:  Where are you building your treasures?
  • Testimony: Do you have a testimony to share?
  • Tithe: Have you asked God about this topic?

NAV LOG: Are you walking in faith that the Lord has your back? What things are you packing around vs. giving to the Lord? If you were with your hero pilot, how much more bold would you be because of your faith in him/her? If we will place faith like that in another man, think of how much the Lord has to give us when we place our faith in Him.

PIREP (Prayer Time): Lord, help me walk in faith in all that I do. Teach me to view the world around me and myself from your perspective.
