And let us hold unwaveringly to the hope that we confess, for the one who made the promise is trustworthy.
Hebrews 10:23 NET
It’s easy to say trust in the Lord when things are going well. It’s harder when our lives feel like they are in pieces and we don’t see any relief on the horizon.
But feelings are not faith.
This is why the author of Hebrews encourages us to “hold unwaveringly to the hope we confess.”
When we hold on to something, we do so purposefully. We focus. We have intention.
And we don’t “hold on” without good reason. The one who we hold on to is trustworthy to save us.
Are you holding on? Don’t let go!
Many have let go. They lost hope. They let their circumstances speak louder than the God who created Heaven and Earth.
Pray for them. But pray that you also have fast.
Life comes hard. The Devil comes harder. Many things want to knock your hold off. Fight it!
The way to fight is to stay close to God.
There is no replacement for staying in His Presence. There is no replacement for being in His Word. There is no replacement for prayer and Christian fellowship.
Jesus paid it all! So just hang on!
Lord, with all the things in this world that want my attention, help me to stay focused on You.
