Hold Fast

When you are in a storm of life...HOLD FAST.

Hold fast because your life may depend on it. If you give up or let go because of your trial you may lose what's most important to you.

Hold fast because circumstances will change. Even when it seems you can hold on no longer, keeping holding on, things will be different eventually and you will be glad you held fast.

Hold fast because help is coming. Who knows, maybe God will give you a second wind and your rescue could be right around the corner.

Hold fast because even if it doesn't work out you will never know what might have been if you give up. It would be better to die holding fast than to die because you gave up.

I bet by the end of his incredible trial Job was glad he didn't listen to the naysayers and instead held fast. Job 2:9 "Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”"

1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Test all things; hold fast what is good."

Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."

Revelation 2:25 "But hold fast what you have till I come."

 Joshua 23:8 "But you are to hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have until now."
