At different times in my life, I have had the opportunity to try rock climbing. Whether on an indoor wall or a real rock face, climbing can be fun, but takes a lot of strength and some learning. It is reassuring to climb with safety gear on and we shouldn't face the walls or challenges in our lives without strength, learning and safety gear!
God offers to provide everything we need when facing challenges in our lives. He is strength and power and He will strengthen us. He will also provide teaching that allows us to learn and to have direction as we climb. Finally, He is our safety net. He will hold and comfort us and He will catch us if we fall. When we call on God for strength, we can be sure that He will allow us to be sure-footed like the deer as we climb higher in our lives to overcome any challenges we may face!
Climb higher by calling on God and allowing Him to provide strength, direction, and safety!
Thank You for being with me, giving me strength and direction, and keeping me safe. Help me to climb higher and overcome challenges as I rely on and listen to You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
