Hold On For Dear Life
Psalms 91:14 (Message)
“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me.”
When I was a boy my family had a friend who said he didn’t believe in God. While he loved my Dad, and respected his strong faith, it was a subject that was off limits to discuss with him. In his words, “I don’t talk about that I don’t believe in.” He would only hold on for dear life, when it was life and death.
One day he was at our house and had some type of attack of pain and fell to his knees. The first words out of his mouth were, “Oh God. Oh God. Help me.” He only wanted to hold onto God when he needed Him, and not at other times.
Don’t live like that! Hold onto God for dear life, as if your life eternally and here on this earth depends on it… because it does! When we do that we have the promise that He will get us out of ANY TROUBLE and He will give us the best of care. What’s the condition?
Get to know and trust Him! Everyday, every month, every year for every second! Then you have faith that you are in His best care!
Confession: “I hold onto God for all of my life, and because of Him I receive the best and He can deliver me from any trouble.”
