Thursday's incredible saga of the survival of 155 people in the icy Hudson River is nothing short of amazing. A miracle!
The more video footage I watch the more I'm struck by the fact that a sovereign God must have had a hand in the proceedings.
Of course many will ask, "If there's a God and He cares, why didn't He prevent the plane from crashing into New York's cold, icy Hudson?"
My response is brief. "I don't know!" But God is God and, "as for God, His way is perfect."
The pilot, Chesley Sullenberger III, guided U. S. Airways' Airbus 320, Flight 1549, to a watery landing that's unprecedented. A true hero! 155 on board! 155 survivors!
Without too much pontification let me say that our Father will lead us safely home even though it may be through rough waters. For those of us who have secured passage, by faith in Christ, we will be guided home by the One who paid such a steep price for our redemption, God's well beloved Son.
