The sky was blue and the sea calm. The freighter Summit Venture was completing its journey into the Port of Tampa Bay. But before it arrived at the dock, it crashed into the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Sadly, thirty-one people lost their lives.
The investigation into this tragedy revealed that the captain who was steering the ship at the time of the accident had been in seven prior incidents. What an unfortunate ending for a journey that was intended to end in happiness.
In our journey through life we have One who is unsurpassed as Captain. His skills are unmatched and His compass is never out of line. He can calm seas and bring storms to a calm ending.
On our voyage through life we have an infallible Captain available to protect us. David wrote, “The Lord says, I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”
When we put our complete confidence in the Lord, we have a Captain who not only cares for our very best but One who will guide us safely through the storms of life until we are safely at home with Him in heaven.
Prayer: We ask, Father, that we might trust in You as the Captain of our lives knowing that Your presence and protection will guard us always. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
