“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13
Where would you be right now if you had not believed in Jesus? What road would you have gone down if God didn’t nudge you to make a decision for Him? We shudder at the thought of where we would be had it not been for the Lord.
If your believing brought you this far, it is your believing that will carry you through on to the other side of glory! You may have come through the fire and come through the flood. You may have thought, “I don’t know how I’m going to survive this!” But you’re still here and you are still standing by the sheer mercy and grace of God.
My sister, even if you are holding on by a thread, hold on. Even if you have to reach deep down and pull up every little bit of strength you can muscle, don’t stop believing. Even if you have no other words to pray, but “Jesus!” God sees you and He will strengthen your heart.
“I know your works.” God says, “Behold I have opened a door before you and no man can shut it. For you have a little strength. You have kept my word and have not denied my name (see Revelation 3:8).” While others around you may have given up on their faith, don’t you give up! Others may have turned their backs on Him, but you keep on clinging to Him with every ounce of faith in you. God will be glorified in your life and He will complete the work He started in you. You just keep on believing! You will see His salvation and you will see His glory manifest in your life!
Prayer: Thank You Lord. You know exactly where I am. You are my God and I am Your daughter. You gave me a heart to believe and it is that believing that is keeping me. Thank You for never letting me go. Thank You for Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You for loving me the way You do. I believe in You. I do trust You. Be glorified in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
