After Praying, Cut the Rope..!

A mountain climber desperate to conquer a mountain started his climb after years of preparation. Soon it got dark. Night fell. Visibility was zero. Everything was black. There was no moon, and the stars were covered by clouds. Suddenly he slipped and fell. He thought certainly he would die.
But then he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half. Yes! Like any good mountain climber he had staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist. In those moments of stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout: “Help me God, Help me!”
All of a sudden he heard a deep voice from heaven… “What do you want me to do?”
“Save me!” he shouted.
“Do you really think I can save you?”
“Of course God!”
“Then cut the rope that is holding you up.”
There was another moment of silence and stillness. The man just held tighter to the rope. The rescue team the next day found a frozen mountain climber hanging strongly to a rope…
Two feet off the ground..!
There is another legend of a man who was lost in the desert, dying of thirst. He stumbled on until he came to an abandoned house. Outside the dilapidated, windowless, weather–beaten, deserted shack was a pump. He stumbled forward and began pumping furiously, but no water came from the well. Then he noticed a small jug with a cork at the top and a note written on the side: “You have to prime the pump with water, my friend. P.S. And fill the jug again before you leave.” He pulled out a cork and saw that the jug was full of water.
Should he pour it down the pump? What if it didn’t work? All of the water would be gone. If he drank the water from the jug, he could be sure he would not die of thirst. But to pour it down the rusty pump on the flimsy instruction written on the outside of the jug?
Something from inside told him to follow the advice and choose the risky decision. He proceeded to pour the whole jug of water down the rusty old pump and furiously pumped up and down. Sure enough, the water gushed out! He had all he needed to drink.
He filled the jug again, corked it and added his own words beneath the instructions on the jug: “Believe me, it really works. You have to give all your doubt away before your faith works.”
Having Faith, means letting go of doubt..!

  1. Wonderful story, yeah sometimes need to take risk, and follow the inner voice, and leap by faith. Blessed Sunday Bob!

  2. The first man believed in God but did not trust in Him .
    The other believed in the words and had trust also.
    Belief is one thing , trust is another aspect altogether !
    Almost everyone believes in God but how many of us have trust in Him ?

  3. Faith is the key. But Bobby, we are all weak and can’t stop clinging on to the rope. Well we can only pray that at the moment of trials God grant us a faith that is strong. Wonderful, I really enjoyed the writing
