Better Safe Than Sorry?

Safe Sorry

The old saying, “It’s better safe than sorry” is not necessarily true in God’s economy.

Ask the woman with the issue of blood, who though “unclean,” pressed her way to Jesus because she knew, “If only I could touch the hem of His garment I would be made whole.”

Ask blind Bartimaeus, who though blind, dared to believe that Jesus would hear him when he cried, “O Son of David, have mercy on me.”

Or ask the man whose friends boldly opened a roof of someone else’s home to lower him to Jesus, because they believed He would make him whole.

Or lastly ask Abraham, who by faith moved out to a land he did not know, because he believed that he would become the “father of many nations.”

My friend, these ordinary people demonstrated that faith takes both belief and action. Indeed, they are no different than you or me! They just knew that to play it safe would make them sorry.

With God all things are possible,
Dr. Celeste

    This is a great point! Playing it safe can cause you to miss your blessing! I am encouraged to keep living on Faith blvd.

    • Amen Carolyn. You comment reminds me of the DVD you recommended by P. Shirer, “The Faith Place.” Let’s continue to enjoy the journey for Faith Blvd! 🙂
