5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
Blondin was a 19th century acrobat, famous
for his tightrope act 160 feet above Niagra Falls
on a rope which was over a thousand feet long.
In 1860 a Royal party from Britain saw Blondin
cross the tightrope on stilts, and again blindfolded.
After that he stopped halfway and cooked and ate
an omelet. Next he wheeled a wheelbarrow from
one side to the other, and returned with a sack of
potatoes in it.
Then Blondin approached the Royal party. He asked
the Duke of Newcastle, "do you believe I could
take a man across the tightrope in this wheelbarrow?"
"Yes, I do" , said the Duke.
"Hop in, then" , replied Blondin.
Well, the Duke declined Blondin's challenge.
He might have believed Blondin could do it, but
he wasn't about to trust him with his life.
You see that's what trusting in the Lord with all your
heart is, "GETTING IN THE WHEELBARROW!".
Trusting God with your whole life.
God trusted us so much that He gave us a gift.
He gave us the gift of His only Son, Jesus Christ.
If we accept this gift from God we are a forgiven
people, we are an eternal people.
Now we can't repay God for His gift, but we can give
God a gift back, the Gift of Trust. Now this gift of
trust to God means that we completely trust Him with
everything that is in us. It means that we don't rely
on anything else but God. We do not rely on our
own strength or the strength of others. We give
all the strength we have, both physically and
mentally to the will of the Holy Spirit. WE
TRUST GOD AND ONLY GOD!
HOW'S YOUR TRUST BEEN LATELY?
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
