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 becomes frightening at times.
There was a “walker” who decided that he was going to walk from one side of Niagara Falls to the other using a wheelbarrow that contained 200 pounds of rocks. When he accomplished his goal flawlessly, the reporters in the crowd thronged him. 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 he 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 really believe it - get in the wheelbarrow and let’s go to the other side.”
Accepting Christ as Savior is the start of our faith-walk “believe and be saved!” However, when we commit our lives to Jesus as Lord it means that we will trust Him to get us safely from where we are at that moment until we will be with Him in glory.
Our journey will be difficult but not if we “get in His wheelbarrow”.
Prayer: Give us courage, Father, to trust You for safe passage through those times in our lives when we are faced with disaster and doubt, knowing we are safe in Your arms. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Acts 16:31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household.”
