You’re talking about your Daddy

Story of the day: You’re talking about your Daddy

A blind girl, one day, was caught in a fire on the tenth floor of a building. She could make her way to a window, but she couldn’t see anything. She felt the heat and smelled the smoke of the fire. Then she heard a fireman yell, “Jump, jump!”

She said, “I’m scared to jump. I can’t see.”

The fireman said, “If you don’t jump, you’re going to die. Take the risk and jump.”

It’s bad enough to jump from ten stories high, but to jump when you can’t see where you’re jumping–that’s terror. In the midst of the chaos and confusion, she heard another voice, “Darling, jump, I’ve got you.” She smiled and said, “Okay, Daddy, I’ll jump.” [Evan, Tony. Stories, Quotes, and Anecdotes. Chicago: Moody Publishers. (2009). pg. 97.]

Whenever we are talking about taking a step of faith, it can be scary, we may not see what’s in front of us, but if we just have faith and take that jump of faith, He will catch us and carry us to our destination.

Quote of the day: Dr. Tony Evans

“Jesus Christ is inviting us to jump. He knows we’re nervous, but just jump. He knows you’re scared, but just jump. Remember, we’re talking about your Daddy. We’re talking about Somebody you know. You’ve seen what He can do.”

Bible verse of the day: Matthew 14:29 (NKJV)

“So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

It can be scary at times to take that step of faith into the unknown. Father, as You asked Peter to step out of the boat and come out into the water of unknown, may I too step out by faith and come. Thank You for being the voice I need to hear in unsure times and comforting me in all areas of my life. I love You and I am thankful for today.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
