Gazing into the sky recently, I was taken back by a revelation that was revealed to me. Watching airplanes flying from one destination to another, it dawned on me that they move very effortlessly. Planes are seldom meet with opposition; the pilot knows his position and flies accordingly. The primary goal of the pilot is to get to a particular destination; however, sometimes, things come up, but he never loses sight of his initial plan. Pilots learn to fly above many minor things to ensure that they stay focus on their ultimate goal, the destination.
So why is it that many people have difficulties arriving at their destination? Perhaps just like the pilot, we need to learn to fly above some things while staying focus on the ultimate goal. We must learn to shift our attention to things that matter the most. What is causing you to miss that great opportunity? Why haven't you reach your destination? What must you learn to fly over so you can ensure that this time you reach your goal?
As in an airport, you must leave some items behind before you can board the flight. In life, separation often must take place for elevation to happen. Genesis 13 discusses that an uncle (Abraham) had to separate from his nephew (Lot). Once the separation took place, the Lord spoke to Abraham and said to him, Lift now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward; for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever, (Genesis 13:14, KJV).
Is it possible that perhaps we as people attempt to carry too many individuals into places that God only called you? Maybe now is the time to act as a pilot and begin to fly above things that have caused you to miss your destination point. Perhaps before God can start to show us our future, we must get rid of some individuals. Once your load is lighter, I believe that you will not only get to your destination, but you will arrive earlier than expected.
