Hold On

I want to encourage you today that no matter how dark the situation may seem, trust God to do something about it anyway.

Dare to trust Him in the desert and stay on the journey.

“When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:17-18‬ ‭MSG‬‬

When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed God.

Though everything in his life seemed to indicate otherwise, he lived his life focused on the power of God and not on impossibility of the promise given.

I am sure that there were times that Abraham barely believed. I know that there were days that he was only holding on to a bare thread of hope…but he held on.

God can do the impossible in you and through you.

Hold on.

Hold on, my friend, you may have only had a thread of hope but in Christ, that thread is stronger than what you face and will hold against that which you fear.

Take Hold

Thursday

God has a hold of you for a reason you haven’t even begun to know yet. 

He believes in you even more than you believe in yourself. 

Don’t stop going after all God has for you just because you are not where you want to be.

Sometimes the journey seems long when you see how far you still have to go, sometimes the journey seems short when you look at all Jesus has already done in you.

Even Paul the apostle felt this way, so don’t be so hard on yourself when you do.

but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:12-14‬ ‭NIV

What God has for you has nothing to do with who you think you are or who you think you are not but it has everything to do with who HE is.

He is working in you so that you can embrace the future He has for you.

Keep going.

Keep pursuing.

Take hold of it.
