Trust in God

Going into burning buildings when the rats and roaches were running out were humbling experiences. Many times during my cereer as a firfighter/paramedic did I have to trust in my skills and abilities. But I knew I could fail.  Not only was I responsible for my own life but the lives of my piers and those I was sent to rescue.

Search and rescue  for victims in a confined space, hotter than an oven, darker than the darkest night, full of smoke, and fighting fire is a challenge. Who else could I rely on for guidance but the Holy Spirit.

As a believer then and now, I know and understand better is my trust in God than myself. Today, with a number of personal God given "rods in the fire",  I am blessed with the opportunity to surrender control and completely obey and trust in my God (Matthew 14:28,29). Many do not get that opportunity.

Thank you Abba Father to have the preveledge to be identified in and through you. You challenge me to grow me. You do not enable me without requiring my participation. You are my tower on which I can lean. The only true support when I am weak.

What is something God provides that you are thankful for?
