The lives of the men who held the rope for Saul in Acts 9 were in grave danger. If they had been caught, not only would Saul have been killed, they would have lost their lives also. But they knew they were the only ones holding the rope. The only way Saul―who would change the world with the Gospel message―was going to get out of the city alive was for them to hold that rope.
You may be holding the rope for yourself today. Maybe you’re sick, or you’ve gotten some bad news and you’re afraid. You may have lost your job and you’re worried about how you’re going to pay the bills. Maybe you feel like you can’t hold on any longer. Don’t turn loose… because your basket may be just about to touch the ground!
God is concerned about you. In Jeremiah 31:3 NKJV He says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” God is touched by your needs. He’s interested in your healing; He’s interested in supplying your finances. So don’t let go of the rope! You don’t know how close you may be to your miracle! Your basket may be almost to the ground. Now let’s join our faith together and pray for your needs:
In the name of Jesus, be healed and set free in every area of your life―in your entire being. God strengthen you in your inner man, in your soul. God heal your body, your family, and your circumstances, beginning this moment. I pray and I believe in the name of Jesus. Amen.
