Holding Fast to Hope

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
– Hebrews [10:23]

God makes many promises to us in the Bible.

He promises health, prosperity, and blessings to those who accept his Son, Jesus Christ.

As we will see in the coming days, these promises are too unequivocal to ignore; too straightforward to dance around with “verbal gymnastics”.

When you deny that God means to keep His promises, you willfully engage in unbelief. This is because you are thinking like a human being. That's understandable, but no longer acceptable to you and me, as followers of Christ.

Beloved, you are a new creation. God wants you to stop following the pattern of the world (for instance, entertaining unbelief) and He wants you to allow Him to “renew” your mind. He promised that He would.

The next time you seize upon one of the Lord's promises for your life, and the voice of unbelief begins speaking in the back of your mind, remember what the writer of Hebrews said: “He who promised is faithful.”

You and I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He has given us the “abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness”. And He has promised us that He knows how to take good care of His children.

Hold fast to that confession. Do not waver. And if you do, pray something like this: “Lord I believe in You. I thank You for Your gift of grace and of righteousness. I accept the blessings that You have for me, and I thank You for washing me in Your Spirit, even when I falter. Keep on reminding me, Lord, that You have made promises to me, and that You are faithful. Thank You for what You're doing in my life. Give me eyes to see and recognize it as it unfolds. Thank You for being the kind of Daddy that knows how to give good gifts to His children.”
