It is just another reality show and I’m kicked back on the sofa only half listening. Yet, I’m drawn to these two men attempting to reach the finish line first. They have been friends for decades – one of them blind. This latest task is to climb to the edge of a mountain and jump into the flowing river below. No life vest or harness to cling to for safety. And, for one of them, no ability to even see where he was jumping.
Then his friend said this:
Erik has been trusting me for twenty years. If I tell him to jump off the ledge, he will absolutely do it.
That is some kind of faith. That is the faith I want to have in the One who sees far into the future. He is able to see what I can not. And, if God tells me to jump, I must trust Him and be obedient.
