Our Daily Manna 1st April 2021 ODM Devotional – Lessons From the Hudson Miracle by Dr Chris Kwakpovwe
TOPIC: LESSONS FROM THE HUDSON MIRACLE (ODM 1st April 2021)
Scripture: Isaiah 43:1-7; Psalms 91:15-16
Welcome to the second quarter of the year! Some years ago, I was led to write about the HUDSON Miracle and I am led to use it again today! I believe the Holy Ghost wants to speak to someone! That “someone could be you! I also remember Timber Hawkeyes said: You cannot calm the storm, so stop trying.
What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” The ability to stay calm in the face of a storm, trouble or danger is a Virtue that could and has actually saved many lives, especially the life of captain Chesley Sullenberger, his crew and the 160 passengers on board the U.S Air Ways Air Bus A320214, that he flew from LaGuardia AirPort in New York, on the 15 of January 2009.
The flight took off at exactly 3:27pm, but about 3 minutes into the fight, the plane hit a flock of Canadian geese (birds). BIRDS? Yes! BIRDS! Oh! The power of little things! The birds caused both engines of the aircraft to lose power! 57 year-old Chesley Sullenberger resorted to an emergency but safe landing or do we say gliding of the plane into the Hudson River – since the two engines had failed.

About 6 minutes later, the plane landed in the Hudson River and the captain calmly opened the cockpit door and gave an evacuation order. The crew guided the passengers on how to evacuate the plane. And all the 160 passengers on board survived including a physically-challenged person.
Later at the interview with press men, most of the passengers said they were able to keep their sanity and calm because of the composure and the calmness of the captain. The captain and his entire crew were later awarded the Masters Med of the Pilot and air Air Navigators Guild by the national transport authority board.
This is a feat popularly dubbed: “The Miracle of the Hudson.” Just one thing saved everyone on board this plane and made this incident a reference point in history. And this is the calmness and composure with which the captain handled the situation! Oh, no matter how your life, family and ministry has been, determine to BE CALM!
Determine to BE STILL and KNOW that HE IS GOD! You can be CALM AND STILL when others are PANICKING because of today’s, 1st Basic Scripture Vs. 2: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
Finally see this: Psalm 121:4-“Behold, He that keepeth Israel (put your name) shall neither slumber nor sleep” God will not watch you SINK! God will not watch you end up in shame!l Just hold on and refuse ANXIETY/WORRY over that battle of your future! Hold on and hold out!
