OCTOBER 2012 BIBLE.ORG NEWSLETTER
Courage and Confidence walk hand in hand. Therefore we can know that He is in control of not only today but also the future.
Some people say it takes a leap of faith to step out in times of change and times of uncertainty. Listen to the words of Kay Daigle, on this topic from her lecture: “Take a Leap of Faith!” Using the fictional character of Indiana Jones she shares a principle which is contrary to the way the world thinks and responds in times of uncertainty. She writes: “Just like Indiana Jones who tried to reach the Holy Grail over a deep chasm onto what appeared to be thin air… we are called to make leaps of faith, but we don’t have to step out into thin air uncertain of what is ahead. We jump, knowing that we step into the arms of Jesus. He is the steady ledge upon which we walk. His strength is sure, and his hold upon us is certain...To take a leap of faith means that you must trust the one who will catch you! Faith has an object; it is in something or someone who will protect you when you leap!” This not only requires courage but also confidence. Here at Bible.org we are confident when winds of change come our way because we know the One who controls the wind and the waves. We are confident that He can speak a word “Be still” to calm our storms. Do you know Him?
