CONFIDENCE

MY CAPTAIN

 

"The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth"

(Psalm 145: 18, NIV)

 

In "Signs of the Times" Reuben Youngdahl, shares how a group of people

were standing at a rickety old dock along a river's edge waiting for a big boat

to pass. Suddenly a little boy came marching up and walked out on the dock

with a red flag. As the steamboat came around the bend in the river the little boy

started to wave the flag furiously. A skeptical man said to the boy, "Surely

you don't expect a big boat to stop at this place for a little fellow like you?"

The boy replied with confidence, "I most certainly do."

 

Suddenly the big boat slowed down and turned for the shore. As the little fellow

walked up the gangplank to board the boat, he stopped, turned to the unbelieving man,

and said, "I knew that boat would stop for me; the captain is my daddy." *

 

Suggested Prayer: "Dear God, thank you that are always near to those

who call on you in truth and sincerity, that you are the captain of my soul,

and that whenever I call you, you hear me and answer my call and my prayer.

Gratefully in Jesus' name. Amen."
