Who are you, Lord?” “I am Jesus, the Victorious… (Acts 9:5)
My mother told me a story of how at five years old, I almost drowned at our local open-air Lido swimming pool.
All I remember about the event is an intense emotion rising as I watched everyone around me laughing, jumping in and having fun, and I so wanted to join in too – so I jumped in!
Unfortunately, as I didn’t know how to swim, I just sank like a stone. I remember sitting at the bottom of the pool, thinking that this isn’t as much fun as I thought it would be when ‘something’ (a hand?) grabbed me by the hair and dragged me back up to the surface and drew me out.
I looked around to see who it was, and there was no one there – just more kids running, jumping, laughing and playing.
I’m convinced that there will be many opportunities for our Lord to appear and save us even today. Sometimes He’ll appear as Himself and sometimes as someone else (Jesus with skin on)!
So wherever you are on this journey – or whoever you’re praying for, He won’t (He can’t) let us down. Just trust Him to turn up …
