So, my dog is getting a little old and has problems with her legs. She limps at times. Today she can’t climb steps. She doesn’t mind being picked up or held. I can carry her around the house without any objection. That is, until I come to the stairs. When I get to the top of the stairs, she squirms and gets nervous. Does she think after all this time that I will throw her over the side? I have never harmed her. I have never dropped her. She knows that I am carrying her because her legs hurt. Why does she think I will drop her down the stairs?
Aren’t we a lot like that? Has God ever hurt us? Has He ever dropped us? Would He throw us over the side?
How many times do we need to be carried before we trust God? Will we doubt Him again the next time we need to be carried? Isn’t it a little ridiculous how we squirm and cry over our situation when we know that God has carried us so many times before?
