If you’re a Christian, and your faith feels weak, it may be more helpful to consider that God’s hold on us is greater than our hold on God.

If you feel like you’re losing your grip–ponder his mighty hands’ grip on you.

If you’re not sure how well you know him–perhaps a greater thought is how well he knows you.

“Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to fall away while God is resolved to hold you.”

J.I. Packer

“But who is Aslan? Do you know him?” [asked Eustace].

“Well–he knows me,” said Edmund. “He is the great Lion, the son of the Emperor over the Sea, who saved me and saved Narnia. We’ve all seen him. Lucy sees him most often. And it may be Aslan’s country we are sailing to.”

C.S. Lewis, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, 92.
