A Miracle in the Skies

I'm sure by now (unless you've been living under a rock) you have all heard about the plane crash in New York City yesterday. Everyone survived and there were very few injuries.

Yet, hardly anyone has mentioned what I consider the real reason this "miracle" happened. Sure, there was the pilot who managed this amazing crash landing. But I believe there was someone else in that cockpit...someone more amazing! God was flying that plane yesterday. God allowed those people to walk away with scratches or less. God allowed the situation to present itself so that very few people even got wet!

Yes, there was a miracle in the skies over New York yesterday.

But I'm looking forward to an even better miracle in the skies. I'm looking forward to the day that our Lord returns for us. The Bible tells us in I Thessalonians 4:16-18
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.

Oh, what a miracle that day will be!

It was indeed a miracle. God was in charge of that plane the whole time.

I have a friend (I used to live in Charlotte) that has a good friend that was on the plane. It will be interesting to hear all the stories that come from all the people that were on the plane.
