Standing on the precipe looking down into the blackness of the abyss below. Is there a bottom to it? What terrors might it hold? What if I loose my will to stand there and totter over the edge? Will he come to me again? Will he save me from this fall? I’ve stood at this very spot many times in my life, this is just another one of those times, or is it the final time that I will stand at this precipice and stare down into the abyss below?
I soon feel the comfort of his loving arms around me, pulling back as he whispers in my ear “no my child, I will never let you fall”. He tells me how often I have been here and how every time he has come and pulled me away, how he has turned me around and set me walking down another path that leads to the gloroius light of his love and saving grace.
We’ve all been there at one time or another in our lives, where we just don’t feel like we can go on. Some of us have been there more than others, some maybe not as much. Something happens, something devastating and we don’t see the solution or the way to solve it. We don’t see the open door we need to go through to find our answers.
It might be a death of a loved one, a broken relationship, the loss of a job. The doctor may have given you a bad diagnosis. It could be a habit we got involved it but can’t seem to get away from. That is the bondage of Satan. Maybe it is alcohol, or drugs, or binge eating, or over spending and can’t pay the bills. Maybe we are being wrongly attacked by people we thought loved us, cared for us, people that we trusted.
It doesn’t matter what the situation is, there is one you can always depend on, who will always be there; one that you can trust unconditionally, who knows you, inside and out but still loves you no matter what. He is the one who will stand at the precipice with you, put his loving arms around you, keep you from falling and set you on the path to the light of his love. JESUS
