I’ve always loved climbing things, so started my training to become an abseiling and mountaineering Ninja. Pretty soon I would take groups of peeps abseiling and stuff. Imagine how the conversation changed when, while they dangling off a precipice, they heard me casually say that I had a healthy respect for heights. “YOU ARE AFRAID OF HEIGHTS. WHAT?!”

I have come to trust the equipment that keeps me alive (like the three anchor ropes attached to solid rock that cannot move). I’m safe as long as I’m attached to that rock. Jesus says “Remain in Me” for a reason.

See John 15:4-11 (http://bit.ly/2sjR4tx)

So we heard Jesus telling us to go to a specific country where the authorities really didn’t like Him. They had a tendency of doing all manner of nasty things to Jesus followers. We had to go there to link arms with and encourage the Family – and the trip would cost us R20,000 per person. I didn’t have R20K. Some said it was a sign to bail out but I couldn’t deny hearing Jesus’ clear instruction to follow Him there.

Jesus doesn’t stop at “Come to Me”. He also says “Come with Me!” What are you hearing Him say to you?

The first time I flew in a plane, I jumped out (and there was nothing wrong with the plane). The jumpmaster had showed a gazillion graphic pictures of ways I would die if I messed up. So while hurtling down from just below space at a billion km/second, I wondered “Would my parachute help me to cheat gravity?”

“So we take comfortandare encouragedandconfidentlyandboldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?” Chillax. God’s got you.

At 4, I convinced my dad I was ready to cycle the big-boy bike. I sat on the cross-bar and peddled while he held the saddle and ran next to me. Faster and faster we went. This was a piece of cake, until I realised that he was no longer holding the bike and was way, way behind me. Only problem was the T-Junction ahead and I had not learnt about brakes.

See Matthew 14:22-33 (http://bit.ly/2pPqrv5)

What is important is not that Peter sank, but that even with a little faith, he was the only Disciple to walk on water. The others only watched.
