“Trust ye in the Lord for ever. For in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.” (Isaiah 26:4).Text — Isaiah 26:1-5
Charles Blondin, a tight rope walker, carried his manager Harry Colcord on his back across the Niagara fall. Knowing fully well that the slightest mistake would plunge both of them into death, Harry still entrusted his life into Blondin’s hand and agreed to go along with him. Blondin told his manager “Look up, Harry… you are no longer Colcord, you are Blondin. Until I clear this place be a part of me, mind, body, and soul. If I sway, sway with me. Do not attempt to do any balancing yourself. If you do, we will both go to our death.” Both of them returned safely.
Colcord trusted Blondin and undertook such a hazardous trip. Believers can absolutely trust the keeping power of the Lord in this wicked world. Although we are surrounded by many dangers, our God is able and faithful to keep and sustain us. He will take us to the heavenly shore as we yield ourselves to Him. God is able “To keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.”
Our God is able
God is able to keep whatever is entrusted in His hand.
