July 8 – Nik Wallenda on Fear

Nik Wallenda said “ I would say the only thing I fear is God.” The Florida based daredevil, acrobat and heir to the famed Flying Wallendas circus family is not afraid to do things most of us would not consider.. He was not afraid when he walked across Niagara Falls on a tightrope, or riding a bike on a high wire 80 meters above ground or hanging from a hovering helicopter by his teeth. And Wallenda, a devout Christ follower is on the right track and wise, when he says that he fears the Lord, because the Bible tells us, “Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil,” and “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Thoughtful people will also fear the Lord for another reason. Luke, a Medical doctor wrote in the book of Acts, “…. anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to him. And “doing what is right” is acknowledging our spiritual poverty, and asking Christ to be our Savior.
