Believing someone can walk across Niagara Falls on a tight rope is one thing. Trusting him by getting on his shoulders as he does it is quite another.
“Search me, O God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139: 23 to 24.”
My prayer today is that my relationship with God will be such that I am able to ask him to search me and test me but I hate to admit it, it scares me! Not because I doubt the goodness, faithfulness, etc. of God, but because I don’t trust Him as I should. Crazy isn’t it. I trust what He says about Himself in His word but don’t trust Him Him, completely. I completely understand the Father in Mark 9: 24 when asking Jesus to heal his son and Jesus asking him if he believed He could responding, ” I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief.” When it comes to my children, I’m no Abraham marching off to sacrifice Isaac. I’m this Father.
My prayer today, help me Father to be more like Abraham and David and less like Mason!
