Once a mountain climber was caught in an avalanche and the ice caps on the mountain came crashing and sliding down and this mountaineer was also caught in it and being dragged downwards. To make the things worse it was at late at night. So, almost nothing was visible except for his short torch light. Suddenly as he was being carried down he suddenly felt a rope and caught it. By now he was hanging just by the rope at the end of something which he didn't know where he was hanging. The temperature was freezing cold and killing.
He cried out to God,” Lord why you put me in such a situation, save me".
God replied,” Yes, Leave your rope"
The man replied,” Lord I know you have a plan but I am sorry I cant do that, cos already after great difficulty i have got this chance to survive and you are asking me to leave this. Do you want me to fall down and die? Please tell me something else"
God replied,” Yes leave your rope"
The man was by now exhausted and said,” Lord I am sorry I don't want to take your suggestion"
The whole night passed and the next another team of mountaineers came and saw a scene- A man hanging just three feet above the ground frozen to death.
Our lord can lead us in unthinkable ways just we have to listen to what he speaks to us.
When God says YES, don’t say NO.
This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
