HOW STRONG IS YOUR BELIEF?
Watching a person walking across a deep crevice on a wire is nerve-racking for most of us. As they carefully make their way from one side to the other with their long pole, it becomes frightening, even breath-taking at times.
There was a “walker” who decided that he was going to walk from one side of Niagara Falls to the other pushing a wheelbarrow that contained 200 pounds of rocks. When he accomplished his goal flawlessly, the reporters in the crowd thronged him with several questions. After answering a few of their questions he looked one of them in the eye and asked, “Do you think I can take my wheelbarrow back to the other side?”
Quickly the reporter responded, “Yes, I certainly do!”
“Good,” he said. “Then you believe that I can do it.”
“Of course I believe you can,” said the reporter.
Dumping the bricks on the ground in front of him he said, “If you believe it – get in the wheelbarrow and let me push you to the other side.”
Accepting Christ as our Savior is the first step in our walk of faith. It begins with “believe and be saved!” However, when we recognize Jesus as Lord, it means that we will trust Him completely to get us safely from where we are at that moment until we will be with Him in glory.
Our journey will have times of doubt, fear, and uncertainty but we must always trust Him.
Prayer: Give us courage, Father, to trust You for safe passage through those times in our lives when we fear “letting go and letting God” carry us through scary times. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.” Acts 16:31
