Who will answer?

“The heart of modern firefighting is the ability to go aggressively after a serious fire & extinguish it.” John Norman

In our world, we are tasked with “extinguishing” the worlds problems when in reality we have trouble “extinguishing” our own.

As firefighters, we are meant to go after the problem and not stop till we resolve it.

This mentality, this drive, and this discipline can cause us great heartache when we come upon a problem we cannot solve on our own. We feel helpless & ashamed as if we have failed.

But wait…when others are in need what do they do? 

They call 911! 

When firefighters are in need who do they call? A MAYDAY.

As a culture, we are often afraid or ashamed to call a personal MAYDAY. If you have ever been left alone, felt trapped, or there is no way out; Let me introduce you to the one who never misses a call, “will never leave you”(Hebrews 13:5), and who will always be faithful.

God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are the three in one. The crew that will never leave you.

He is your Holy Father, your friend, and the one who gives you counsel. “Before they call, I will answer. While they are yet speaking, I will hear” Isaiah 64:24 

Don’t be afraid of calling the personal MAYDAY. Our pride should not keep us from getting killed (literally or spiritually). It is our dependence on the one who will never leave us that will make us stronger. 

“Be strong & very courageous”(Joshua 1:7) because God is with you always. “For with God Nothing is ever impossible” Luke 1:37

Stay strong in The Lord!

God Bless,
