There is one phrase believers will often hear as we trust God to do something in our lives. Hold on. I cannot begin to count the number of times someone has told me to hold on. I cannot begin to tell you the number of times I have told myself to hold on. I think we know the possible consequences of letting go, and this causes us to hold on. But if we are totally honest about it, sometimes the grip gets slippery.
What do you do when the grip gets slippery? I guess the best thing to do is take both hands, grip tighter, and make sure you pray as you hold on. You would think when God has promised us something it would be easier to hold out for the promise. No, that is not always true. Maybe it is the excitement of getting the promise or a little doubt about the promise. I mean, have you ever questioned some things concerning God's promises?
I will tell you what keeps me holding on. My Father has always come through for me. He has never failed me and there is no reason for me to think He will fail me now. His Word is true. I will sum it all up with the following, Good things do come to those who wait. The longer the wait, the bigger the blessing. Now who would let go after such a great statement!?
God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19 NKJV
