Hold the fort for God’s help will come. Hold on to hope. For those who hope in God will not be disappointed.1
There might come to your mind 10,000 reasons why life is not worth living. The devil will shout in your ears how you are a failure and that there is nothing good about you.
It’s up to you you to choose to believe the truth when God says “there is hope for you,” or give in to the lies of the devil. Choose to listen to God. And hold the fort for God’s help will surely come.
It does not matter how long the darkness has kept you in fear. God’s light will yet shine. It might not shine a long beam to your future. But it certainly will show you where to walk the next step. So hold the fort for God’s help will surely come.
Why hold the fort? Your mind is under attack from all sides. You easily lose heart. Therefore look up. There is a flag of victory waving. You go and stand underneath it. Now what does it say: It says, “I am your helper. So do not fear.”2 Therefore hold the fort for God’s help will surely come. It will not delay.
Let not your struggles depress you. Let not others lack of understanding make you feel lonely.
The night will pass. Dawn will break. And God will whisper in your ear,“I am with you.” What an assurance that is! Therefore hold the fort; for God’s help will surely come.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth” — Psalm 121:1, 2 (NIV 1984).
