eSeed: Faith's Flight

Read Psalm 33:18-22

There was a devastating flood, and a man was stranded on his rooftop. “Lord,” he cried, “save me.”

A neighbor came by with a rowboat and tried to save him, but he turned away. As the waters continued to rise, the sheriff came along with a motorboat, but the man refused his help.

Suddenly he was thrown into the water and he arrived in heaven. “Lord,” he cried, “I had faith. Why didn’t You save me?”

Back came the reply, “I sent two boats, but you refused My help.”

The Lord has provided you with many opportunities for help and hope. But you’ve refused them. If you’d jump at opportunities as quickly as you jump to conclusions, you’d be a lot healthier and happier, wouldn’t you!

Prayer: We thank Thee, Father, that Thou wilt never forget us or forsake us. Help us to live in Thy obedience; die in Thy favor: through Christ. Amen.
