Psalm 91 Day 91: Be blessed It was a cri

Psalm 91
Day 91: Be blessed

It was a crime.
Incredibly risky.
Highly illegal.
Definitely crazy.
These are the headlines of a 2008 documentary, Man on Wire.
It examines the most amazing exploit of tight-rope walker Philippe Petit. In 1974, Petit had a secret plan to extend a steel wire between the two towers of the World Trade Centre in New York. At the time, the towers were still under construction.

6 years of planning.
110 storeys high.
“See every day as a true challenge and then you live your life on the tightrope,” said Petit.

Petit was on the wire for 45 minutes. Thousands gathered below to watch him. On each end of the wire, police waited for him to finish. Petit made eight passes before finally coming in. To this day he insists the stunt wasn’t for publicity or even to see if he could do it. “The path is as important as the result,” he told a reporter for Newsweek magazine.

Petit told the same Newsweek reporter that it “never occurred to him to use a safety net” when walking the wire.
He added: “I never fall. But yes, I have landed on the earth many, many times.”
Maybe that’s what the Psalmist was trying to say for the believer who faces trouble:
Read v9-12 again.
“I never fall. But, yes, I have landed on the earth many, many times.”
How blessed we are when we live our life knowing we may land awkwardly but we will never truly fall, because the Almighty Most High is watching over us.
