Faith Saver: Man Walks Tightrope Over Grand Canyon with Jesus as His Safety Net!

    Okay ladies! I have an awesome faith saver for you this week, but before you watch it, I want you to know that this is by no means a nudge to put your life at risk!

    This past Sunday, stuntman Nik Wallenda walked across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope without any safety equipment. What Wallenda did bring with him was Jesus.

    He prayed to and praised Jesus throughout the walk, and although I think his stunt was crazy and dangerous, I found his faith to be so inspiring! I feel that it’s a primary example of how each and every one of us should believe in ourselves when we have Jesus so securely in our hearts!

    Check it out!

     I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    This is one of my favorite verses. I used it as the foundation of my first fiction novel, The Destiny of Sunshine Ranch. It’s my strength and I truly believe that this scripture gave Wallenda the strength to do what he did.

    God is our Savior and He is always there to guide us, carry us and protect us. We all have aspirations. Ladies, put your faith in Christ, glorify Him constantly and He will carry you in everything that you do.

    Ladies, were you inspired by this video? Do you put all your faith in Jesus Christ? Do you believe that you can do anything with Christ in your heart?

        • That was the time devil was telling Jesus to jump off a high place since God will save Him. The verse is basically saying don’t do unnecessary dangerous things just because you know God has the power to save you. It’s tempting God.

        • Let’s not forget that the devil was tempting Jesus at a vulnerable moment, which is a big difference here. The devil is not present in this scenario. Wallenda knows he can walk the rope. He’s just taking his skill further. Just as people climb mountains or swim great spans of water, etc. They’re challenging themselves further. He already has faith in Christ, that’s why he’s praising Jesus the whole way. If he were to deliberately jump off the rope and scream, “God save me,” then he’d be testing God.

    1. I don’t know how I feel about this. I mean it is great that he has that much faith, but I don’t think God wants us to put our life in danger just to prove something. Honestly what if he had died? What message would that have sent to other people who aren’t Christian? I am not saying I disagree I am just not sure if I agree with this either!

      • yeah, if he had died, that would NOT have been good. O.o that’s why personally, i would NEEEEVER have enough faith to do something like this…but that’s the thing, this guy apparently does. maybe his spiritual gift is faith and he knew he had enough experience, and he knew God wasn’t going to let him fall and if for some horrible reason he did, God had a reason for that.

        and like a girl said a couple comments above this, if he had jumped off a cliff and said “God save me!!”, then THAT would be stupid and wrong, but of course he clearly has TONS of experience in tightrope walking so this makes some sense.

    2. This guy has tightrope walking in his blood, and he’s done it for a long time…it’s not like he’s just a random guy who decided to walk across and say, “God will keep me safe even though I have no experience whatsoever!” I’m so glad he made it and gave all the glory to God! 🙂 I saw some people on TV making fun of him because of his constant talking to Jesus while he was walking across…which I thought was ridiculous! While doing a scary stunt like that, people can be as religious as they want! I know I am whenever I’m nervous about something!

    3. yeah…if i were in the middle of a rope over the grand canyon with no safety equipment (heck, WITH safety equipment), i would…scream, throw up, burst in to sobs, scream some more, my only dream in life at that moment would be to be standing on the ground again…so yeah, clearly i’m not meant to be a tightrope walker…..:)
