TOPIC: THE ADVENTUROUS AVIATOR:
WORRY IS LIKE A RAT
BASIC SCRIPTURE: MATTHEW 6: 25-34
The story is told of an aviator who decided to go on an adventure by flying to different locations of his country. Every destination he flew to, he looked for an airfield where he landed to fuel the aircraft every 4 hours. Two hours after he took off from a particular location he had stopped to fuel, he heard a sound somewhere in the plane. He noticed that it was a rat in the plane that was causing the noise. He suddenly became worried about the critical wire in the plane that the rat could bite with its sharp teeth and cut off. It could be a wire that might hold the secret of the plane staying up there and the plane could come crashing down. As he thought about this, fear and worry set in from all sides. Who wouldn’t be worried under such a circumstance? As God would have it, he suddenly remembered that a rat is a rodent that should stay on the ground in dark holes where it would be in search of food.

He remembered that a rat would not be able to withstand the high altitudes of flying. Upon this realization, he nosed his plane up and began to soar higher and higher, going to higher feet above sea level. When he had reached a particular height, he noticed the noise had disappeared. He then decided to look for the nearest airfield to land. When he landed, a dead rat fell from the cockpit. The truth is this man knew something about the rat, applied that knowledge and defeated it. In the same vein, when you understand fear and worry, you defeat them. Worry and fear take away from man both peace and joy that God has Hesigned for us to enjoy. The Bible clearly declares to us that, “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
There is no doubt that life is full of challenges. However, worry leads us into fear thereby pushing one into a deeper crisis of both mind and the body. Leo Buscaglia said, “Worry only saps today of its joy.” It magnifies our challenges, making them bigger than what they really are. A Swedish proverb says, “Worry often gives a small thing a bigger shadow.” George Bernard Shaw said, “People become attached to their burdens sometimes more than the burdens are attached to them.” Did you get that? Release that battle to God and LET IT GO! Your worrying cannot bring a solution but it may bring a sickness (hypertension)!
