RMP: Big Wave Surfing

Big Wave Surfing.

Now, I'm not a huge fan of surfing, but this video shows some epic Big Wave Surfing wipeouts. If you don't know what Big Wave Surfing is... well, it's, uh... surfing big waves. Not too complicated, bud.

Anyways, the reason I show this video is because I want you to think about the fear striking the hearts of the people wiping out in these videos. I don't care how long you've been surfing or how much you've seen - the sheer force and power of these tsunami-like waves is enough to scare the living daylights out of you. Not the dead ones. The living ones.

In any case, as I was thinking about this, I realized that these tremendous waves are nothing more than what happens when God steps in a puddle. These waves are the ripples of his feet. If our God is that enormous and powerful, what can we fear? It reminds me of those verses in Romans 8 that say, "If God is for us, who can be against us?... Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one."

If that doesn't get rid of your fear, I don't know what will.
