Hold Fast and Trust

“Though he slay me, yet will I trust him” (Job 13:15).
“For I know whom I have believed” (2 Tim. 1:12).
***
“I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
‘I trust in Thee.’
“I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn;
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.
“I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive.
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain;
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses.
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.
“I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,
‘I do not doubt,’ so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.”
***
“In fierce storms,” said an old seaman, “we must do one thing; there is only one way: we must put the ship in a certain position and keep her there.”
This, Christian, is what you must do. Sometimes, like Paul, you can see neither sun nor stars, and no small tempest lies on you; and then you can do but one thing; there is only one way.
Reason cannot help you; past experiences give you no light. Even prayer fetches no consolation. Only a single course is left. You must put your soul in one position and keep it there.
You must stay upon the Lord; and come what may–winds, waves, cross-seas, thunder, lightning, frowning rocks, roaring breakers–no matter what, you must lash yourself to the helm, and hold fast your confidence in God’s faithfulness, His covenant engagement, His everlasting love in Christ Jesus.  –Richard Fuller

Are you game?

PLEASE, in the Name of Jesus, I beg you:
Pass this website on to your Contacts; you never know who
you might bring to the Saving Grace of our Lord and Savior, 
Jesus Christ by this one action!

PLEASE let this message from The Holy Spirit through Dr Rogers

inspire you to copy and paste this entire website by just:

(1.) Clicking ONCE at the top of the page in the “URL” address area
to highlight it;
(2.) Copy it then;
(3.) Paste it to an Email, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., message to
ALL of your contacts as a Witness to them!

I KNOW that this will be a difficult decision for many of you:
You will be stepping-out and telling the World that you are a
CHRISTIAN! Please remember that Christ told us that if we will
profess Him before others here on earth, that He would tell The Father
in Heaven that you belong to Him; He will be your Defense Attorney
(He will always WIN) and God will let His Son’s Sacrificial Death
on the Cross be PAYMENT-IN-FULL for ALL of your sins!

Its up to you: Keep your Christianity under a “blanket” or broadcast
to the World that you belong to Christ!

“Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I 
confess also before My Father which is in heaven. But whosoever
 shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father 
which is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32-33).

The most important verse in The Holy Bible is:

Jesus told Nicodemus: “For God so loved the world
that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth on Him shall not perish but have
Everlasting Life!” John 3:16

The SECOND most important verse is:

Jesus said: “I Am The Way The Truth and The Life:
NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT
THROUGH ME!” John 14:6

If you have a favorite Scripture, please send it to
us via the Email below and we will consider placing
it under the above two quotations.

Also, The Lord placed it upon my heart to tell you to
feel free to copy and paste this entire website to all of
your Email, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Contacts!

One thought on “Hold Fast and Trust!

  1. Hello Webmaster, I noticed that http://ourdailybread101.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/hold-fast-and-trust/ is ranking pretty low on Google and has a low Google PageRank. Now the Google PageRank is how Google is able to see how relevant your webpage is compared to all the other webpages online, if you cannot rank high at the top of Google, then you will NOT get the traffic you need. Now usually trying to get to the top of Google costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars and very highly optimized targeted marketing campaigns that takes a team of experts months to achieve. However, we can show you how to get to the top of Google with no out of pocket expenses (free traffic), no stupid ninja tricks, no silly mind control techniques, and this will be all white hat with no blackhat software or tactics that could possibly land you on bad terms with Google and put you in the dreaded “Google Sandbox”. We’ll show you how to easily capture all the targeted traffic you need, for free, multiple ways to land fast (not months) first-page rankings in Google and other major search engines (Bing, Yahoo, Ask, etc), even show you strategies on how to earn daily commissions just try Ranking Top of Google, please check out our 5 minute video.
