When I flew airplanes regularly landing at night was very different than daylight. I would use the instruments to guide me to the airport over most of the trip, but since I was a VFR pilot I would use my eyes outside of the cockpit to land the plane. In the daylight using your eyes to land was easy, you can see many areas that provide you a clear landing area because you can see the obstacles and dangers since everything is well lit.

At night the ground below is very dark, and I remember when recognizing the airport’s flashing white and green light pointing me to where I was to land that it was a calming feeling. I knew I was being guided to a safe landing zone by the light. As I approached the landing path other lights lit up both sides of the runway so you knew exactly where to put the plane down. Runway edge lights are white, which sets them apart from the blue/green/red taxiway lights. At night without lights it would be nearly impossible to land a plane safely, you don’t know if the ground has deep ruts, or if it is a freshly plowed field, or are there any low fences in your path, it’s just too dark to tell. Runway lights provide the only path you know for certain is a safe place to land your plane, keeping you alive. It is the same with following God’s path. Walking in the light of the LORD brings us safety and life. Follow the light.
