Flying blind?

777Come fly with me.  I have a clip below called “This is why we fly” – featuring the song “Paradise” by Coldplay. 

It shows the view from the cockpit of a plane flying over the Southern Alps, coming into Queenstown NZ.

Above the clouds, the Morning Star can be seen.  The Morning Star reminds me of Jesus, who said of Himself;
“I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16

The Maori name for New Zealand is ‘Aotearoa’, meaning “land of the long white cloud”.

Feeling under a cloud? 
The plane dives into the long white cloud on it’s approach to Queenstown.  Now all we can see is dense cloud.  Surrounded by unseen mountains, it’s time for faith.

Have you ever felt like you are flying blind?
Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.  Isaiah 50:10

Jesus is like the pilot, and God is like the control tower.

When you can’t see where you are going it’s best to respect the terrain and hand yourself over to the Lord’s guidance.  Respect Him, trust Him and do what He says.

Above the clouds, the morning star shines its light as the sun touches the mountain peaks.  It hasn’t gone away.

In the midst of the clouds, contact is established with air traffic control.

Have you ever felt heavy in your spirit?

Life goes on
 It gets so heavy
 The wheel breaks the butterfly
 Every tear, a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
 She closed her eyes
 In the night, the stormy night
 Away she'd fly 
- Paradise, by Coldplay.

The term Heavy is applied to all radio transmissions with air traffic control from aircraft capable of take-off weights of 300,000 pounds or more.  God knows the weight you are carrying.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6

Here's the clip "This is why we fly". Enjoy.

What do you see when you think of Paradise?
New Zealand is like Paradise, but pales in comparison to Heaven.  Do you know that Paradise is still there, with the tree of life?  Jesus has made the way home to God for all lost children of Adam who believe Him.  Do you know the way to Paradise?  If you trust Jesus for your eternal life He will get you there.  Jesus promised the thief that put his faith in Him; “Today you will be with me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43. 

To the overcomer Jesus says;
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.”  Revelation 2:7.

  1. Excellent! And the video finishes as the plane approaches ‘EZ’ line – ie. it’s really so ‘EEZY’!

    Have just got back online to catch up after long weekend and very first thing found on logging into WordPress an exhilarating start to the week – many thanks Jo. (Now, late morning is heavily overcast and still raining after having been out in it – but we know what and who’s above it all…)
