Genesis 28:15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go… for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
Psalm 121 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
2 Timothy 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.
“If your hope today is how strong your grip is on God you don’t have much hope because you’re gonna lose that grip by tonight. The first time you are worried, anxious, fearful… that’s unbelief… you’ve lost your grip.
We intellectually say that we believe that God is faithful and will not let us go, but as soon as we start in our mind mulling things over and worrying we’ve lost our grip saying “Maybe God isn’t going to see me through. Maybe God isn’t going to be faithful.” You have a fear… “Maybe God isn’t going to take care of me.”
If your hope is how tight is your grip, you have no hope. Because your hands are greased and so is the rope and you’re not hanging on. Your hope is He’s got a grip on you and He will not let you go. He will keep you wherever you go. The hope is that God grips us and we grip as well but when we lose our grip He is still gripping.”
