Crossing the High Bridge

Travelers in long-ago Africa faced challenges beyond belief. Deserts, jungles, and wild animals seemed to crop up at every turn.

The most challenging obstacles were raging rivers at the bottoms of vast gorges. It was close to impossible to climb down, and if they managed it, any slack water in the river was likely to be infested with crocodiles.

What they needed was a bridge to cross over the top.

Our journey with Jesus sometimes feels like we are in the bush, surrounded by a myriad of obstacles, and unable to get through each day without something bringing disaster upon our heads.

James 1:25 shows us the path to our escape over our high bridge.

“But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.”

We have two steps to take to find God’s blessings in our lives.

1. Study the Word of God to learn his ways.

2. Act on what we’ve learned.

That’s our path to safety, directing us high over the perils of life, and leading us to success in Jesus Christ.

We can trust in our Lord to be our salvation and to daily guide us through the perils of danger.

Excerpt of the Day

Jesus searches out the devil so he can toss him away, leaving us pure and unencumbered before him.
