Hold Tight

While driving along the highway in the mist of a wind storm or heavy thunderstorm, the first thought may be to pull over along the side of the road and wait for the conditions to become more favorable for driving. With the wind gusts blowing the car from left to right or the heavy raindrops pounding against the windshields, visibility decreases; likewise, the desire to hold the steering wheel a little tighter increases as the gusts carry the car along the road. What is the consequence of pulling over and waiting this thing out? In the mist of adversity, there is a covering that is extended to the chosen.



In Psalm 91: 5-8, the Psalmist writes about the protection against the adversary. Those that come up against you will not prevail. They will fall to either side, but not come near. 5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.


Condition  -  You must make the Lord your dwelling place.
9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.


Result - You will prevail over the adversary.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

Why? - God Loves You!
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

So, when the storm comes, hold tight, do not relinquish your footing, the adversary- the wind and thunderstorm will subside. Then, you will be able to continue on your mission because God has already set up the appointment and He needs you there to finish the assignment He has you on for this particular journey. Keep on driving, call on he name of Jesus and He will answer you and deliver you through the storm so that you can give him the GLORY!



Oftentimes, we are faced with opposition and unfavorable dealings that are crafted to distract our mission, get us to pull over to the side of the road, blur our vision, and we begin to loose our traction. Oh, but there is a Deliverer who we can call on and He is ready to reach out and pull us through to the other side. Don't hesitate to call on Him because His Love for us is the driver behind the deliverance.

After all, there is no time to waste waiting when God has the power to get you to your destination without harm or blemish. Hold tight and keep driving!

  1. Hello,

    I have visited your blog and enjoyed it very much. It has a great inspiration.

    Would you like to visit my weblog which I created about 3 months ago?

    My husband and I are Iranian and live in the UK. We love Jesus and our weblog is mostly about our Lord. Since we are Iranian we have added some Persian topics to the weblog, but you can read and watch English ones.

    My weblog is http://creation-to-eternity.blogspot.com

    God Bless,

  4. I'll surely hold tight LaKenya. Actually I'm on the passenger seat and the Lord is the one driving me in this life. Since I made that decision, I feel more confident and patient about the events in my life. I know the Lord is right there not matter what's going on...the good or the bad...it's not always easy all the time but it gets better every time...be encouraged :)
