Last night, when Nik Wallenda was walking 1500 feet above the ground on a tight wire across the Grand Canyon, I couldn’t help but think, “God loves to make weak men strong” (This was the take away from Sunday’s message at Graystone). Nik prayed out loud almost the entire 22 minutes “walk”. He was praying specific prayers, praising God, and exalting the name of Jesus. I’m pretty sure he set a world record for how many times the name of Jesus was shared on the Discovery Channel.
Now, Nik comes from a family of tightrope walkers. He is one of the best in the world. God has gifted him. But by risking his life and walking across the Grand Canyon, he put himself in a position where he had to depend on God. And millions and millions of people watching on TV heard him glorify God and lift up the name of Jesus. It gave me chills.
This all leads me to a personal question for you. What is God leading you to do? I doubt it’s to walk a tight wire across the Grand Canyon or even across Bay Creek for that matter. But what is God stirring in you? Where do you need to depend on Him? When we humble ourselves and trust in God, He gets to display His power. And He gets all the glory.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9a
