HOLDING TOGETHER

“You know me inside and out, you hold me together, you never fail to stand me tall in your presence so I can look you in the eye”. 

Ps 41:12 EHP 
In his novel H.M.S. Ulysses Alistair McLean described one of the characters, Harrington, like this, “Harrington was indestructible”. This man withstood the icy weather and atrocious conditions in the war-time sea passage around the north of Scandinavia, in order to get supplies to Soviet Russia. He had survived numerous sea battles too. Some people do give that impression – they endure despite what nature and their fellow human beings throw at them. 
The writer of Psalm 41 had been able to endure much suffering and the scathing enmity of other people. He knew why. It was his faith in God. Looking back, and correctly perceiving where his resilience had come from, he declared to God, “You hold me together”. 
There are plenty of events, illnesses, disappointments and failure that can make you disintegrate. Opposition, illness, criticism and the jealousy of rivals as well as infidelity, lack of confidence, timidity and cowardice can bring you down. Put yourself in the hands of Jesus Christ and let him hold you together whatever the world may throw at you. Time and time again it is sheer bravery, obstinate inflexibility and the determination to hold on and bring glory to Jesus Christ that has made his disciples seem to others to be indestructible. Many times it is just enduring the boredom and tedium of staying in the same place doing the right thing come what may that has been the way some disciples have served him without cracking. And some have died in order to be faithful. Let Christ hold you together and make you indestructible. 

PRAYER THOUGHT Lord, let me hold on and help me to hold out.
