God’s Faithfulness

Hebrews 10.png

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who is promised is faithful.                                          Romans 10:19-23 (NIV)

Hold unswervingly to the hope you profess, for the Lord is faithful! Sometimes, especially when many things are going wrong, all you can do is hold on to Christ. You would love to sort things out in your mind and find a way to go forward, but often this is impossible. The best thing to do at such times is to Seek His Face and profess your hope.

To profess hope is to affirm it openly. Your words matter! They make a difference, not only to other people but also to yourself. They have a strong influence on your physical and emotional well-being. Negative words will pull you down. But when you openly affirm your hope and trust the Lord, you gain strength to move forward with confidence.

The basis of this confidence is that God is faithful. Moreover, he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability to endure. Sometimes the way of escape he will provide is through your own words, such as “Jesus, my Hope is in You.” This sort of affirmation helps you hold on to your hope unswervingly, persistently. 

Grace and Peace to You My Friends

  1. I often think about the ways to sort things out myself before praying. You’re right-my thought life matters and I need to be taking my thoughts captive to hope and faith! Thank you!
