Just hanging on in a hard time? We need to ask: Whose doing the holding?

 An often used response to the question: "How is it going?" is "I'm just hanging on!" The image we have in our minds is of someone who is hanging on to a limb, clinging on for dear life. The fear of letting go can be overwhelming! When we are in a crucible type experience, this sense of just hanging on is amplified. It is as if we are exerting the last ounce of our strength until help arrives.

BUT help has already arrived. The Father has promised that even though we might stumble, we will not be hurled headlong, we will not fall. Why? Because He is the one hanging on to us! (Psalm 37:23-24) The father of lies will do everything to convince that such is not the case and that if you let go you will fall! DO NOT LISTEN to him.
