Day One The Things We Fear
The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 NKJV
The drowning man was flailing in the waves just 100 yards from the beach. Two politicians ran up to the shoreline. The Republican threw out 50 yards of line and shouted to the man, “that’s all I can afford. Swim for it!” The Democrat stepped up with a smirk and threw 1000 yards of line out, then dropped the rope and walked away shouting, “Somebody ought to do something for him!”
Just as the man began to sink for the third time, Jesus came walking out on the waves, took him by the hand and whispered, “It is I, don’t be afraid!”
Where is your hope today/ Is it in your past success? Is your hope in what others think about you or what money you have in the bank? The Bible tells us that the only thing we can hold onto when everything and everyone is failing is our faith in Jesus Christ.
