Have you ever seen The U.S Blue Angels who are the US Navy’s Air expedition team? If you have you have seen the awesome power of McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet 

031008-M-7120M-008
US Marine Corps (USMC) Captain (CAPT) Kevin Reece, Marine Aviator for Vertical Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 212 (VMFA-212), pilots his F/A18 Hornet over the South China Sea to Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan.

This powerful unit cost US $29 Million per unit and the Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.  The F/A-18 has a top speed of Mach 1.8 (1,034 knots, 1,190 mph or 1,915 km/h at 40,000 ft. or 12,190 m). It can carry a wide variety of bombs and missiles, including air-to-air and air-to-ground, supplemented by the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon. It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio.

The point of this narrative is that with all this technology there is one vital element that is required to be effective. A Pilot who sits behind the controls. This unit would be vulnerable without a human being-also this unit would spiral out of control and crash.

So similarly, you can posse every known gift imaginable but if you don’t allow God to guide you in using those gifts, then they are useless. More seriously you may spiral out of control and crash. As the captain of your ship, the pilot of your air craft is God. (don’t listen to the bumper stickers that say God is my Co-pilot) they are so wrong.

 Imagine if Moses and Aron didn’t go into Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let my people go. Sure they were in fear but they decided to listen and follow the journey that God had prompted for them, yet as a result of their obedience The Nation of Israel benefited, Moses grow to become the leader of a new nation.

 

Our planet

God desires the same for you, understand it will not be comfortable but if you familiarize yourself with God and then set sail into the “Airways of life.” You will find a journey that is filled with wonder and amazement. On this journey you’ll leave behind old attitudes, old relationships, old sins, and old ways of thinking. On this journey to obedience you will obtain technical gifts from God that you have never imagined or even realized,

 As a favorite song of mine says-Give me the Sky and I’ll give you heaven. As long as you believe the best is yet to come.
