“The fear of heights and high places is a natural fear. That fear can keep you alive but sometimes a fear of Heights comes from ignorance of our safety system. If you’re afraid, check your knots, your belay anchor, which ties you to the rock and don’t look down. You can build up your tolerance for heights by climbing higher each time you go,” my friend explained.
“Wow,” I thought, “This rock climbing is very similar to my life I have experienced since I began following Jesus Christ.”
It’s natural to experience fear as we go through life.Sometimes fear can be good by keeping us alert. Other times we live in fear because we don’t know about our safety system in Jesus Christ. I need to remember to check my knots and anchor, making sure I remain tied to the Rock and continue to look up rather than down as I climb higher each day.
