Flying on Instruments


All trainee pilots are taught that when you are flying through a storm or in the dark you should trust your instruments, not your feelings. It is easy for a pilot to get confused and to feel like they is flying level when actually in a climb or dive. However, the plane's instruments do not lie.

Hey spiritual pilot - Hey Christian- when you are in a spiritual storm or going through a dark time, trust your instruments not your feelings! Your instruments are the promises of God recorded in Scripture. Your feelings are not reliable. The instruments (Scriptures) are always reliable. Trust your training and fly by instruments, not by feelings.

Here's a good article at Desiring God on this topic.
