'UNDER HIS WINGS'
SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, I planned a business trip to show a potential investor some property my partner and I intended to purchase. Since no direct flights were available, we booked a charter company that regularly flew small, twin-engine planes. This wasn't the first time I'd done this trip in a private plane. Yet, that morning as I prepared to leave, I was suddenly gripped with fear. Images of crashing and being injured filled my mind, and I became extremely agitated.
Fortunately, in the middle of this downward spiral of fearful thoughts, I remembered to pray. I reminded myself of the spiritual fact that I was protected because my thought—my entire being—is eternally safe under God's government. I find the 91st Psalm is always a helpful antidote to fear. So I reversed the fearful images of accident with this psalm's reassuring message that I was dwelling "in the secret place of the most High" (verse 1).
