Sailing Through Life

The next time you are near a lake or a seashore, spend some time observing the movements of sailboats on the water. Though some larger sailboats have small motors to use in case of an emergency, for normal use they are totally dependent on the wind. Their pilots can change the direction of the boat to a degree, but it is the wind that is in charge.

Sailboats existed for thousands of years before the apostle Peter’s day; as a fisherman, he knew the value and power of the wind. So when he wrote about how God inspired the Old Testament prophets to write their books, he used an image akin to sailing: “men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21, NIV 1984). Just as the wind carries along a sailboat, so the Holy Spirit was the power and source behind the writers of Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16). But the same image applies to our daily life as Christians. When we are filled with and yielded to the Spirit, He is the power who silently guides us through life. Yes, our hand is on the rudder, but it is the wind of the Spirit that fills our sail.

Recommit yourself today to being “filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). Trust Him to guide and empower you.

Seamen cannot create the wind, but they can hoist their sails to welcome it.
John Bunyan
