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


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!
