Flying used to be fun. No matter what the occasion, I calculate what it would cost to drive verses taking the bus or a train or a boat. I refuse to fly. I have no fear of flying, but like the man said, TSA makes law-abiding citizens feel unsafe and insecure. Our freedoms are attacked on so many fronts that it is impossible to list them all, and fighting even one of them on "their" terms spells defeat for logic and valor.
Instead, trust God. God sees and God knows. All that we humans see and know of this world is temporary. God is permanent. Last night, my daughters and I heard a teaching on the concept of a covenant, a binding contract. Basically, if God said it, that settles it. Do you know what God said? The example in this teaching centered on Abram. God made a covenant with him, and changed his name to Abraham.
When God told Abraham that he would be the father of many nations, he was already old! It took another twenty-five long years, before Abraham finally had a child with Sarah, his wife! Sarah, that poor, dear lady, was ninety when Isaac was born! Then, their child had only two sons. Abraham never saw anything other than apparently infertility, yet he still obeyed God.
(23) And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
