Trust Me, I Won’t Let You Fall

I’ve been pondering what to write for a while, but after posting an updated profile picture on my Facebook page and reading through the comments I knew where the Ruach (Holy Spirit) wanted me to go with this post.

God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. (Deut 31:8) He holds us in the palm of His Hand where He has promised no one can snatch us away. (John 10:28) He has a plan and a purpose for us. (Jeremiah 29:11) He knew us when we were being formed in our mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13) He is intimately involved in every aspect of our lives, but how many of us truly believe Him enough to “let go” and fall into His arms? (1Chron 21:13)

I knew there was thick glass behind me. I saw other people doing what I was contemplating. I knew it was safe to walk over to the edge of that walkway, put myself up against that glass and lean back. I knew all of this in my mind; the reasonable, logical, pragmatic me knew these truths. But, there was another part of me that was bucking what I knew as truth with pretty firm resistance!

Many times Yahweh asks us to, simply, trust Him. July 22nd reading from My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers writes: “Am I willing to reduce myself simply to “me,” determinedly to strip myself of all my friends think of me, of all I think of myself, and to hand that simple naked self over to God? Immediately I am, He will sanctify me wholly, and my life will be free from earnestness in connection with everything but God.”

It was quite liberating to quiet the fierce resistance fighting for dominance in my mind and lean back against that glass and experience trust. Yahweh has so much He wants to share with us if only we will trust Him enough to “let go” and be caught up on His eagle’s wings!

Isaiah 40:31 …but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
