When Trauma Becomes Holy Ground – A Word by Bill Yount

There’s a re-commissioning call coming to us, the¬†body of Christ… a¬†call to follow on to know the Lord like never before.

“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.”¬† Hosea 6:3 (KJV)

This is the miracle plane that landed in the Hudson River years ago. Upon take off birds took out a couple engines and the plane had no place to land. Pilot Sully said those dreadful words that no one ever wants to hear, “Brace for impact, we’re going down!” He landed the plane perfectly upon the water or it would have exploded to pieces. Pilot Sully was asked later, “Did you pray?” He said, “No, I didn’t have time to pray, I think the passengers took care of that.”

The passengers moved quickly out on the wings of the aircraft, waiting to be rescued, as it began sinking.

Here is what the recommissioning call looks like. This call often comes to God’s people down through the ages when a major malfunction takes place in the world, our nation or our own lives. It’s when our plane doesn’t land the way we thought it would, or being offended by God Himself not doing what we expected Him to do. This is where He calls us one more time to follow on to know Him.

I believe if we could hear the conversation of many standing on those wings it would go like this, “That’s it for me. I will never fly again.” But if they could hear the voice of the Lord at that moment, they would hear, “I am with you still. I am still with you and the proof is you are still here and you are standing on My wings. You are on Holy Ground.” The truth is when we are in a traumatic crises we are on Holy Ground and something awesome is about to happen.

I have a gut feeling there is another conversation going with a few on those wings who are saying, “With a Pilot like that, I will never be afraid to fly again anywhere.. with a Pilot like that.”

God is looking for a people who want to fly again, in spite of the trauma they have been through or the hurt that says, “I will never love again.”

Another Plane Is Now Boarding

There’s another plane now boarding if you want to fly again¬†and to follow on to know Him. I am boarding this plane myself, just because the pilot’s name is Jesus.¬†Where He leads me I will follow. He lands airplanes anywhere He wants to. “There is a river¬†whose streams¬†make glad the city of God,¬†the holy place where the Most High¬†dwells.” Psalm 46:4 (NIV)

“After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him.¬†So Jesus said to¬†the twelve, “Do¬†you¬†want¬†to¬†go¬†away¬†as¬†well?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” John 6:66-69 (ESV)

Whispers¬†From His Wings…

* “Sing unto God, sing praises to His name! Extol Him that rides¬†upon the heavens by His name Jehovah; and rejoice before Him.”¬†Psalm 64:4 (KJV)

*¬†“There is none like God, O Jeshurun, who rides through the heavens to your help, through the skies in his majesty.” Deuteronomy 33:26 (ESV)

Dear Friends…¬†The question awaits us.¬†Will we fly again?¬†In spite of¬†our plane of life landing in a river of¬†trauma and never wanting to fly again, here we are, still alive, standing on God’s wings. With a Pilot like that, it’s a miracle moment. Another plane is now boarding. Let’s fly again.
