Is anybody up there?

Psalms 106:1 Praise he the Lord.  O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

There is an old joke about a man who was climbing up a mountain.  As he neared the top his footing slipped and he fell over the edge.  In desperation, he reached out and grabbed a small, scraggly bush growing out from the edge of the cliff.  Hanging suspended between the Heaven’s and the Earth the man gazed to the sky and cried out, “Is there any body up there that can help me?”  A voice answered, “Yes my Child, I am here don’t worry, just let go and I will catch you.”  TH man looked down towards the bottom of the mountain, looked back at the sky and said, “Is there anybody ELSE up there?”

I love how this simple statement reflects our culture and mindset today.  If there is a God, and if he has the power, can he help me, and will he help me.

We have a God who not only had the power to create us, but also the power to sustain us.  Not only Can God help, He wants to help.  God wants to be the one we cry out to.  He lovingly awaits our prayer so he can send the answer that he has already prepared.  God is a GOOD GOD!  He’s always there, always listening, always ready to respond.  All we have to do is reach out.

“Reach out, and touch the Lord as he goes by.  You will find he’s not to busy to hear your heart’s cry.  He is passing by this moment, your needs to supply.  So reach out and touch the Lord, as he goes by”

When you find yourself hanging between Heaven and Earth.  Don’t wonder If God is there.  Know he will always be there.  We don’t need to search for any other solution.  Just trust God and let go.
