HOLDING ON TO GOD
Job. 2-3 And the Lord said unto satan, hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an up-right man one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? And still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him to destroy him with out cause. Now that is true commitment, Job had lost his health, his children and his fortune, but Job didn't curse God or let go of Him, because he trusted God to do the right thing for him. Unwavering commitment is a cornerstone of unwavering faith, it is easy to let circumstances dictate our emotions when times are tough or hardship comes our way, puts us to looking for an escape, but fortunatly we have Gods written promises to help us hold on and that alone can make us victorous in our most intence struggles. If Job could hold on to God in such a time of trouble, guess what so can we. " I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me. Philippians 4: 12-14 When you're at the end of your rope and trouble over takes you, tie a knot in the rope and hold on, God will rescue you.
