Am always fascinated by the moves that acrobats make during their shows. Rarely will you find an acrobat acting alone and they employ such a strong team synergy that involves a high degree of trust. They can make up to ten levels, one on top of another and beyond the skills of their profession lies a strong bond of trust. This reminds me the many times when I used to play with my children by throwing them up. I never got to hear any scream apart from that joyous laughter backed by the confidence that dad will catch them. This to a larger degree explains how our Heavenly Father deal with us as his children. There are moments He will throw us up and he expects us to have the faith and the confidence that he cannot drop us. The Scriptures makes it clear that our God is an eternal refuge and underneath are always everlasting arms to support us. Although many times life push us over the edge, we can be sure of never crashing because we have everlasting arms beneath us for support. Although pandemics like Corona virus may affect our businesses and bring about job losses and health insecurities, beneath us are everlasting arms. We need to trust God more than acrobats trust each other. Although the moves may appear dangerous, we won’t fear because we know of the everlasting arms beneath. Where are you worried over what will become of you with this pandemic? What moves is God making and they appear quite dangerous for you? Where are you wondering whether you will get a soft landing? We can jump as high as we can in the face of danger because we know of some hidden everlasting arms. Nothing can come our way that God and us cannot handle. You won’t falloff because you are attached to God’s everlasting arms!
“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’” Deuteronomy 33:27 NIV
