Davidisms: God Is Not My Co-pilot

I’m sure you can think back to the years when the phrase “God is my co-pilot” was all the rage. It was on bumper stickers everywhere. Many people frequently quoted it.

Until - finally - someone got it right.

God is not my co-pilot. He does not share in my life’s direction with me. How could we as humans possibly believe we are “co” anything with the Creator of the universe? We were created by God. Therefore, it’s impossible for us - his creation - to become equal to him.

God directs, guides and oversees every area of our lives. He alone is in control of the supreme instrument panel. He alone knows how to command and land my life’s plane. He alone is in complete authority. Over every tiny detail of my life.

The prophet Jeremiah said it this way, “I know, O Lord, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps” (Jeremiah 10:23).

My life is not my own. God is not my co-pilot.

God is my one and only pilot.
