Do you remember when you were teaching your child to ride a bike, or teaching them to swim?
As a parent you were holding onto the back of the bike or you were cradling the child in the water teaching them to kick and doggy paddle.
AFTER A BIT YOU HAD TO DO SOMETHING……LET GO!
You had to let go of the back of the bike and let them pedal and balance.
You had to let them go in the water and watch them struggle a bit as they were learning the principles of holding their breath and kicking to stay afloat.
IT WAS PAINFUL LETTING GO, BUT YOU KNOW THEY NEEDED TO TAKE WHAT YOU HAVE TAUGHT THEM AND CREATE THEIR OWN SUCCESS!
YOU WERE NEVER FAR AWAY! You were right there in case they crashed or started to sink.
JUST CLOSE ENOUGH TO LET THEM LEARN, AND NOT TOO FAR AWAY TO SAVE THEM!
That is our Heavenly Father!!
He teaches us His Word and how to use it and activate its principles, and He needs us to go from babyhood to great faith, but that only happens from exercise and doing it without the help.
HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE IN CASE WE CALL OUT!
HE WILL NEVER ALLOW US TO DROWN!
HE WILL BE THERE IF WE CRASH TO BIND UP THE WOUNDS!
Thank you Jesus for loving us so much to teach us to stand strong.
IF JESUS ALWAYS KEPT US FROM THE LESSONS WE WOULD NEVER LEARN HOW TO STAND, WALK, TALK, RIDE, SWIM, GROW IN FAITH!
**Jesus will never use what He redeemed us from to teach us a lesson. That is never God!
Deut 31:6, So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
