Airplane Analogy

Hello friend. This is Daniel Kolenda. We’ve been talking about fulfilling God’s will for our lives and today I want to use a simple analogy to demonstrate a powerful principle. 

Airplanes are marvelous examples of modern technological genius, but they operate on principles as ancient as the universe itself. In order to fly, an airplane needs “lift.” Lift comes from speed, and speed comes from “thrust.” Thrust is the power that pushes the aircraft forward, and without it nothing else matters. The aerodynamic design, the well-trained pilot in the cockpit, the sophisticated navigational technology, and the tank full of jet fuel are all useless unless the engines come alive and provide forward motion.

In your life, the only one who can provide the forward motion is you. God will be your pilot. He will provide the wind beneath your wings and the fuel in your tank, but you have to give Him some momentum to work with. You cannot do God’s part, and God will not do your part. Your part is to get into gear, get off your backside, and get moving.  Reinhard Bonnke has said, “God will lift you out of the deepest pit, but He won’t lift you out of an easy chair—you have to do that yourself.”

This is Daniel Kolenda
encouraging you to live before you die.
