Memory Monday – Week 37
We just got back from being out of the country for a week and when we returned I received a sweet email from a friend with Hebrews 10:23 included. It was perfect timing as this has been one of my favorite verses over the past year and I knew immediately I wanted to share it. Can I just say that I am forever grateful that we have an army of people praying for us, believing with us, and encouraging us. It is truly a blessing!
Hebrews 10:23 is about holding on to the truth. Hebrews 10:19, the start of the call to persevere, tells us that we can approach the Lord with freedom and confidence. As Hebrews 10:22 says, when we use the confidence that has been given to us, we draw nearer to God. Why do you think people can go through really, really hard times with such a peace and a joy? It’s because they approach the Lord with confidence and they seek Him. This is a privilege that too many people miss out on. It’s not to be taken for granted or lightly. A price was paid for us to receive this gift. Make use of it! He wants us to draw near to Him during the good times and during the bad times.
When you draw near to God, what happens? We grow in our faith, we overcome doubts, and we deepen our relationship with Him. Hebrews 10:23 tells us that we grow when we hold on to the hope we have in Him. There is no room to waiver. Because of Him, we can remain confident and hopeful, that He who promised is faithful.
Put your confidence in the one person who is faithful! You will never be disappointed.
