Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
The Scene: The pilot of the biplane was flying along, straight and level…..upside down!
The Holy Spirit quickened, “See how that pilot trusted in the seat and shoulder straps to hold him in the cockpit. That is how God’s people can be fearless in troublesome situations.
Trust Him, that he has His arms around you, just like those straps that hold the pilot in his seat. The pilot was not gripped by fear–he went about his business, even though everything was upside down (a representation of chaos and confusion).
Psalm 25:1-2 “To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.”
Proverbs 29:25 “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”
