Have you ever hung onto anything? Think a minute, what was it? Whether good or bad, why did you keep hanging on? What was about it that caused you to not let go, to stay with it? Could it be that whatever it was, you felt it was worth the effort? Was it so valuable that you were willing to suffer hurt or harm before letting go? Surely in life, as there are things we must let go of, there are others we must hang on to. That which is most important, I encourage you to hang on in there.
That’s the way I feel about God’s Word. It’s too valuable to let go. There are blessings in hanging on to it. Like Jacob, who hung on to the angel’s heel, refusing to let go because of the blessing in store. Thankful, God’s Word lets us know that this too shall pass; that we can make it if we hold on.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).
“The unfolding of your word gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130).
I will keep on thanking God that I have something to hang on to that will get me through the toughest of times. Hanging on to His Word keeps me form being hung up on many things.
