Hang in There!
C.S. Lewis once said you never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death. He continues… It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong as long as you are merely using it to wrap a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a cliff. Wouldn’t you then first discover how much
you really trusted it?
Interesting fact, Hebrews 11:6 says - But without faith it is impossible to please
Him, for he who comes to God must first believe that He is, and that He is a
rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Diligently: DOING A LITTLE THING
FOR A LONG TIME UNTIL CHANGE COMES. Let me tell you again He’s a
rewarder of those that DOES A LITTLE THING FOR A LONG TIME UNTIL
CHANGE COMES. Now I believe the writer to say, I’m not giving up, I’m not
quitting, no matter what… no matter the circumstances, I’m not giving in, I’m not
throwing in the towel! Until I see what the Lord has promised me!
In fact, Acts 27 tells the story of Paul as a prisoner on a ship, on the way to Rome.
And found himself in the midst of a great and violent storm where daylight had not
been seen for several days!. The storm was so bad – all on board had given up
hope. And about that time, Paul stood and said, “listen up! Last night an angel
appeared to me and said, Paul don’t be afraid! You must appear before Caesar
and there will be no loss of life of anyone that’s sailing with you! And Paul told the
men, and I believe it will be exactly as the Angel said to me!” now listen to 1 John
5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him (not ourselves), that if we ask
anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, we
also know that he will give us what we ask for, and I believe that it will be exactly
like what the word has said it will be… so Stay on the ship, no matter how bad the
storm! And keep doing the right thing until change comes… be blessed today!
