Thought of the Day July 19, 2023 Trust

 A group of scientists and botanists were exploring remote regions of the Alps in search of new species of flowers. One day they noticed through binoculars a flower of such rarity and beauty that its value to science was incalculable. But it lay deep in a ravine with cliffs on both sides. To get the flower someone had to be lowered over the cliff on a rope. A curious young boy was watching nearby, and the scientists told him they would pay him well if he would agree to be lowered over the cliff to retrieve the flower below. The boy took one long look down the steep, dizzy depths and said, “I’ll be back in a minute.” A short time later he returned, followed by a gray-haired man. Approaching the botanist, the boy said, “I’ll go over that cliff and get that flower for you if this man holds the rope. He’s my dad

Do we have the same trust in God as our Father? Do we trust him with our lives, knowing that ,he loves us? The boy didn't know the intentions of the scientist. But, because of his relationship with his father he knew that his father wanted the best for him. Jesus showed us how to trust the Father. Having completed the will of the Father by giving his life for our salvation, Jesus said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." He trusted that the Father would raise him up. The Father will never deceive us nor abandon us. He has promised again and again, "I am with you". Lord, I trust in you!
