God Is My Pilot Not My Co-Pilot

We all have seen the stickers that say Go is my Co-Pilot. I am going to talk about those briefly and share why God is not my co-pilot but the fact that God is my pilot!

God Is My Pilot Not My Co-Pilot

I really didn’t think much about it until the pastor mentioned about those bumper stickers we see. You see by you saying God is my Co-Pilot you are saying you are co-equal to God. You are saying you don’t totally trust God. You are also saying you are not allowing God to be in charge.

God is not Co- anything with us!

God is not second. God is always first! The word Co- means mutual, the same, joint or common according to Dictionary.com  God is not the same as us. We are made in His image, but we are not a god or godlike. We are not even mutual with God or even co-equal with Him.

A Co-Pilot is not in charge!

Did you know a Co-Pilot is not in charge! A Co-Pilot is only there to help when needed from the main pilot. When we say God is the Co-Pilot that means we are the ones piloting and God is not. By saying God is the Co-Pilot we are saying we are in control, we do as we please and go where we want and only let God take over when needed.

God Is My Pilot!

He is in total control! By letting Him fully pilot the plane or ship, He is in control and I trust Him where He takes me.I know he will take me to where I need to go for His Kingdom. When I say He is my pilot, I am showing He is above all else and I am not co-equal with Him. By saying God Is My Pilot I am saying God is in charge! I am also saying that I am not common or the same as God by saying He is my Pilot. I also know God is in charge of everything. I answer to Him at the end.

God Is My Pilot

Let’s make a change and start saying …

  1. I believe the original thought behind this statement was to declare the driver’s faith and trust in God and that he/she never drives alone. I don’t think the author intended to argue who was in control. However, I do agree that the phrase can be theologically misleading. I also agree with you that God is not “Co” anything with us. Unfortunately, even when we declare that God is in control of our life’s steering wheel there are times when we try to grab it from him. One thing is to say we trust Him in the driver’s seat and another is to actually relax and close our eyes while he drives.

    1. Thanks for your comment Joe.
