“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for
he who promised is faithful. 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” (Hebrews 10:23;35-36.
Has the Lord made you a promise in your heart? Hold
on to it without wavering, but never let that promise become the object of all
your energy and love. Love your Savior above all else, and always desire Him
more than any promise. Confidently believe in the Savior who loved you enough to
lay down his life for you. He who has promised gave all for you. He is faithful
to you. Don't give up. Believe. Stay the course. Persevere and keep doing the
will of God. Live your life for Him, and keep loving Him no matter what the
battle in your mind tries to impart to your heart. Once you have loved Him above
all else and obeyed His will–once you
have held unswervingly to His course–once you
have lived a righteous life trusting in your faithful God–you will
receive His promise at the perfect time. He will never fail you, and He will
certainly never forsake you (Hebrews 13:8).
“Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will not be put to shame” (Isaiah 50:7, NLT). “God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful” (1 Thessalonians 5:24, NLT).
