Today's word is Hold.
I am not a person who finds faith an easy process.
I struggle ... it seems daily with assurance of my salvation, and there are those who say that means that I am not truly saved.
Those words don't help.
I know it's a besetting sin for me and that I MUST actively fight against this doubt within myself.
Having a regular devotional time is a HUGE help for me. Like seriously a HUGE help.
But the biggest help for me?
This verses I've pictured above. These are my life verses.
Can you see... the HOLD that God places.
HE calls me.
HE proclaims me to be his people.
He's the one who has called me out of the dark into his marvelous light.
GOD calls me his own.
He has put a HOLD on my life. He holds me.
And that is my reassurance.
That is what "I" hold to.
On my own I'm just this lost, ever so imperfect sheep wandering about bawing for someone to come and help me out. But GOD calls me and holds me and tells that I am his people. Chosen by him. Part of his priesthood, part of a holy nation.
And I am reassured.
What holds you?
