“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” -Hebrews 10:23
“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith, and if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him.” -Hebrews 10: 35-38
I want to hold unswervingly to the hope He has given me…and I don’t need to worry about being faithful and my many moments of unfaithfulness…HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL. He is faithful and HE will make me faithful moment-by-moment. All I need is a willing heart…a heart devoted to Him and wanting to be faithful. I see Him making me more faithful and it is AWESOME. So, I know He will continue to make me more and more faithful and I need not worry..it is all in His hands.
Perseverance is required….I must not shrink back. I am making the commitment today, in the face of many uncertainties, fears, and challenges, to HAVE FAITH and PERSEVERE. I will not shrink back. I know He will show me in a major way if I am in error (as long as my heart is wanting to be in the right place…otherwise He might leave me to the consequencs of my own sin). I am waiting and will continue to hold to His Spirit’s leading. May He make me faithful because He is Faithful to His Word.
