In the midst of a "tough" diagnosis of a dear friend, I have had to hold unswervingly to the truths of God's word. The Word of Life is always needful, especially during such hard times.
I need to hold fast....to God's truth, to His goodness, to Him......and to friends who are also holding fast. Fellowship is held fast by the shared hope from the One who is our hope.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; (Hebrews 10:23)
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; (1 Thessalonians 5:22)
Hold fast to it for the sake of your holiness. “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth (John 17:17)
And if I'm struggling to remember, God has a creative way of reminding me----right before my eyes!
