When he was about two, my son decided that he would venture up to the top of our van. As best as I can piece the events together, when Mom and I had our backs turned, he proceeded to climb up on the bumper then the hood and windshield of the van until we looked up and he was sitting on the roof of the van. It happened so fast that we missed the whole thing. Then the trauma came. He knew he must come down, but was afraid to move. Going up was one thing, descending another thing altogether.

Daddy to the rescue: I stood facing him with my arms out-stretched and called to him, “Trust me. I’ll catch you.” Through tears and fears, he finally inched close enough for me to bring him safely into Daddy’s arms.

Sometimes it’s difficult to trust Jesus. We get ourselves into tricky situations—either by design or accident—and we need someone to bring us to safety. We need to trust Jesus. He comes to us, advises us of the right action plan, and waits with open arms to draws into safety. Will you trust him today?

 “Humble yorselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you” (1 Peter 5:6-7)
