Keep Pressing Forward!

Isaiah 33:2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

During the building of the Golden Gate Bridge over San Francisco Bay, construction fell badly behind schedule because several workers had accidentally fallen from the scaffolding to their deaths. Engineers and administrators could find no solution to the costly delays. Finally, someone suggested a gigantic net be hung under the bridge to catch any who fell. Finally in spite of the enormous cost, the engineers opted for the net. After it was installed, progress was hardly interrupted. A worker or two fell into the net but were saved. Ultimately, all the time lost to fear was regained by replacing fear with faith in the net.

Do you have a fear of falling or failing? The Lord is always right there to be our net — to catch us when we fall. He is our salvation in time of trouble and provides the perfect safety net in Messiah!

Rest in Him and His finished work 2000 years ago. Press on full steam ahead!

    This may sound like a strange thing to say but I do not think a day goes by I am not aware and thankful for that "net of salvation"..
    No matter what happens or how I trip up or what a foolish misstep I may take..and I do it often..(Thats probably why its always on my mind.)
    That assurance is right there and I so rejoice in it..
    Thank You Father… \o/

    ISAIAH 35:3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
    Say to them that are of a FEARFUL HEART, BE STRONG, FEAR NOT: your God will come with vengeance, even God witha recompence; he will come and save you.
