God is Who He Says He Is!

There was a man who had to get to a certain destination at a certain time. He was in a snow storm. He came up to a river and thought to himself, How thick is the ice? Will it hold my weight?

It felt solid, and so he reached a little further and tapped again to see if it could hold his weight. He took a branch and smacked the ice to see if it would crack...nothing. So, he crawled across the ice on his stomach. Sweat began to fall down his brow, and he began to tremble with fear as he realized that at any moment he could go to an icy grave. He took the stick with him and continued to tap the ice in front of him as he crawled on his stomach.

The man went about forty feet in about forty-five minutes. He was absolutely terrified. As he was crawling inch by inch, sweat pouring out of his brow, he heard a strange sound. He heard singing, and then a rumble, rumble. The man looked behind him to see another man with a full cart of coal and his horse in front of him, slamming across the ice, singing at the top of his lungs while he whipped his horse.

The man stood up and felt a fool because the ice was solid right through to the bottom. He felt foolish. The knowledge he received released him from his fear. Don’t crawl across the promises of God on your stomach. They are solid through and through. You can trust Him!

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. — Proverbs 3:5-6
