Dangling by one hand, he yelled, "Is anyone up there who can help me?"
A voice thundered from above, "This is God. Let go of the branch."
The man thought a moment ...
"Is there anyone else up there who can help me?"
I heard this joke many years ago, and there are times I've felt exactly like that man dangling from a branch, afraid to trust God completely.
I wonder if Noah, Abraham or Moses ever felt that way?
I think they did, but they let go of the branch.
And everything went great for them.
"All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance."
Faith isn't believing everything will turn out great. It's believing God knows what He's doing even when it doesn't.
