On this day in history – July 22, 1933 – Wiley Post became the first man to fly solo around the world in his plywood monocoque aircraft, the Winnie Mae. It took seven days, 19 hours, which was 21 hours less than his previous record which he had set in 1931 with a navigator, Harold Gatty. Instead of taking a navigator with him this time, Post installed an auto pilot device and a radio compass, which were both in development stages, but which allowed him to make his record solo journey.
Perhaps your recovery is in its development stage. You simply can’t get to where you want to be on your own. You need a Navigator.
God promises to be that Navigator. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye” (Psalm 32:8).
Recovery Step: Joanna Gaines, of Fixer Upper fame, prayed, “God, I trusted you with my dream and you took me far beyond what I ever could have imagined.” Your flight in life offers to take you places beyond what you could ever imagine. But you must not fly alone.
