A former British Army Special Forces soldier, one of the
youngest climbers to scale Mount Everest, crossed the Northwest
Passage of the Arctic Ocean in an inflatable boat!
He spent 7 seasons starring in the Discovery Channel series “Man vs.
Wild” and his National Geographic series “Running Wild with Bear
Grylls“, in which he has taken celebrities that are world-renowned on
adventures into the wilderness, has made him a highly popular figure
Yet, what you might not know about him is that wherever he is in the world, whether inside an ice cave or forging through a jungle, Bear Grylls starts each day on his knees, looking to the Lord Jesus for fuel to tackle the day ahead. Bear has faith that is powerful and intimate.
If he was talking about Covid 19, or any other predicament, Bear
would tell you that the love of God is always there to “hold us,
guide us, strengthen, and rescue us“. And he has told that to a lot of people, as author of 85+ books that have sold over 15 million copies.
The one adventure that is closest to Bear’s heart is his personal
journey with the Lord Jesus which he describes as the “backbone” of
his life. Bear notes that the Bible is full of instances where the Israelites
got into trouble. The root cause always seemed to be the same: they
stopped listening to God.
Jesus said we need to listen to Him and believe Him (John 5:24).
Thankfully the Bible tells not only the story of the failure of
people to listen; but again and again the story of how they put things
right: They “cried out to the Lord” for help (Judges 6:6). We
need to admit that we need Him.
If you have wandered away from God let Jesus forgive you and restore
your relationship with Him and, daily as you spend time with Him,
He will power you up for whatever challenges lie ahead.
Jesus is mighty to save any soul who will turn to Him and ask for
cleansing from sin and He is mighty to help us through all day-to-day
Bear enthusiastically affirms: “I am so grateful for the many times
in my life when God has answered my cry for help and restored me”.
If you have wandered away from God let Jesus forgive you and restore your relationship with Him, and daily, as you spend time with Him, He will power you up for whatever challenges lie ahead.
