Imagine Trusting God More
Charles Blondin, was famous in the 1800’s for walking across Niagara Falls on a tightrope numerous times. He even crossed blindfolded, with a stove and in fact, on one occasion he even cooked an omelette on the tightrope! In June 1859 he crossed with a wheel barrow and then asked the crowd if they believed he could push someone across in the wheelbarrow and the crowd shouted back enthusiastically ‘YES!’ To this Blondin replied, ‘Would someone like to step forward and get in the wheelbarrow.’ No one responded. No one trusted him.
Blondin proved that day that there is a massive gulf between belief and trust. No one trusted Blondin enough that day to get in the barrow! It is the same with our lives spiritually at times. God doesn’t want us to just believe — He wants us to trust Him!!
I want to encourage you to imagine what your life would be like if you really, yes really, trusted God! To imagine trusting God more….
Solomon trusted God and he said,
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.’ (Proverbs 3:5–6)
Solomon was the wisest man who every lived and so we would be wise to take on board not just Solomon’s wisdom but also remember that it comes from the God.
