The Doubt Brought the
There is a story of a
cliffhanger, determined to reach the summit of a high mountain. After
years of preparation, he began his adventure. Only he journeyed alone,
because he wanted all the glory.
He began his ascent, and
as daylight faded he decided to continue climbing. Night fell.
The night fell heavy as he was overcome by total darkness. The moonlight
and starlights were hidden within the clouds. There was zero visibility.
He was only a few miles away from the submit when he slipped climbing a
ridge and fell off, falling at frightening speed. While falling he
could only see shadow-like figures in the darkness and felt the tug of
gravity sucking him down. In those anguishing moments he saw his
life pass before his eyes.
He thought death was near
when suddenly he felt the tightening of the rope around his waist that
tied him to a nail embedded in the rock wall of the mountain.
In desperation, suspended
in mid-air he screams, "God, please help me!"
Then unexpectedly a deep
voice from heaven responds:
~"What would you have
~"Do you really think
I can saved you?"
~"Of course, my Lord!"
~"Well then, cut the rope."
There was a moment of
silence, then the man tightened the rope around his waist.
The mountain rescue team
tells a story of a man they found frozen to death, his hands wrapped firmly
around a rope tied to his waist...HANGING TWO FEET FROM THE GROUND.
So, how tight are your
ropes? Would you let go?
~I am the Lord, your God,
who holds your right hand, and I tell you don't be afraid. I will
help you." Is41:13-
If this message has been
a blessing, pass it on to someone else.
