What To Hold On To

Everybody is going through something! Hurts, disappointments, discouragements, illness, loss, trials and faith challenges are common to everyone. Peter said, “Don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through as if something strange were happening to you…”(1 Peter 4:12)

Paul emphasized that, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted He will show you a way out so that you can endure.”(1 Corinthians 10:13)

Sometimes God saves us from the trial and sometimes He helps us to bear and endure it. His call not ours! When we are going through something it is important to not give up, not give out, not give in and not walk away or pull back from God. There are no short cuts or quick fixes but there are things you must know and have settled in your heart as you go through whatever you are going through…

  1. Never forget that God loves you! “I have loved you with an everlasting love, with unfailing love I have drawn you to myself”(Jeremiah 31:3)
  2. Keep your faith and trust in Him! “…deep in your hearts you know that every promise of the Lord your God has come true. Not a single one has failed.”(Joshua 23:14)
  3. God has not forgotten you! “But Zion said, The Lord has forsaken me and my Lord has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her nursing child and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands, your wall are continually before me.” (Isaiah 49:14-16)
  4. Stay in God’s Word and hold on to His promises! “Holdfast the faithful Word.” (Titus 1:9) “So shall my Word be that goes from my mouth, it shall not return to me void but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”(Isaiah 55:11)

He will never let you go… don’t let go of Him!
