SON SHINE 23: PERSISTENT PASSENGER
It was no time for diplomacy: she protested so vehemently, the rest of us on the Lagos, Nigeria-bound domestic flight took note. It was not her problem if the airline decided to sell more tickets than the aircraft?s capacity, and she was not about disembarking for lack of a seat. Well, she made the flight after a stalemate. She was taken to the front and disappeared into a space we were not privileged to see – somewhere between the first seat and the cockpit. Aviation rules were after all made for man.
?? and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary…And he would not for a while: but afterward he said? Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.? ? Luke 18: 3-5 (KJV)
It is not a time to faint. Hold on to His promises.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
