Venomous snakes were being shipped from Africa to Europe in a plane. Unfortunately, the person who packed the snakes forgot to lock the box in which the snakes were placed. Once the plane had taken off, the snakes began to respond to the movement of the plane. Immediately, they found their way out of the box.

Passengers in the plane could see various snakes on the isle. They screamed, some fainted and the brave ones took refuge wherever they could within the plane.

The air-hostess ran to the Pilot to inform him of this scary incident. The Pilot quickly informed the Air Traffic Controllers on the ground.


*Pilot:* We are extremely sorry. The Passenger who got these snakes had forgotten to lock the box. These are deadly poisonous snakes. So where can I land? Please advise me before passengers get bitten.

*Air Traffic Controller:* No, do not land. Stay there for a minute, let me think.

*Surely this sounds like a bit of stupid advice to the impatient Pilot. But the Pilot has to follow the orders of the Air Traffic Controller. A minute is too long to wait for such trouble. After a minute, the Air Traffic Controller contacts the Pilot.*

*Air Traffic Controller:* At what altitude are you flying?

*Pilot:* “300”

*Air Traffic Controller:* Go higher.

*Pilot:* But the snakes will …..

*Before the Pilot could finish his sentence, the Air Traffic Controller shouts “I said go higher!!” And the Pilot acts in accordance with the Air Traffic Controller’s command.*

*Air Traffic Controller:* Now, what’s your altitude?


*Pilot:* 500.67

*Air Traffic Controller:* Go higher

*Pilot:* But Sir…..

*Air Traffic Controller:* I said go higher, Captain.

*He complies. By now, the snakes are all over the plane and it becomes unbearable. A few have been bitten and some have become unconscious. But still, the majority keeps on seeking refuge.*

*Air Traffic Controller:* Now Captain, keep on going higher.

*The Pilot complies and keeps on going higher and higher.*

*Air Traffic Controller:* Now what’s your altitude?

*Pilot:* Now I am on 1200

*Air Traffic Controller:* Now stay there. Tell the cabin crew that at this altitude the snakes are now harmless. They can just pick them up with their hands and return them to the box and this time they should not forget to lock it. This is true.

*One cabin crew tried holding a snake. It was numb and harmless. Soon it has become a game within passengers in the plane. Some for the first time were holding snakes in their hands and returning them to the box.*

*“Look at this black Mamba, it was really after me. Now I can even throw it and catch it like a ball”,* said one Passenger.


This was the end of the seemingly dangerous ordeal in the plane. Even those who had fainted were resuscitated and gained consciousness.

*Now, What Is The Lesson Of This Story???*

There is a need for you to increase your altitude in PRAYER *(praying without ceasing).*

Surely, when you reach a certain point in your prayer life, know that — *this is the point when even the most seemingly unconquerable problems gets defeated and the demons lose power.*

As you pray, God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor in the mighty name of God, Amen.

 *Snakes at high altitude usually stops moving and eventually dies.*

*P* – Pray

*U* – Until

*S* – Something

*H*- Happens


Good day and have a glorious weekend ahead
