How is your Faith?
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 10:35-36 New International Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
There are always some tough times in life, there will always be trials and tests that we will face! They’re inescapable. Jesus said, “But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.” That’s when our faith in the Lord and our relationship with Him will be tested! It is one thing to stand in a worship service at church and sing “it is well with my soul”, but it is quite another to be able to sing it when you are in stocks and chains in a prison dungeon like Paul and Silas were. Or when they auction off your house at the courthouse steps or you’ve lost a child to some horrendous act of the Devil. That’s when the commitment to your faith must be at it’s strongest. That’s when we must know that we know that we know and can walk in that faith in the Lord. We can’t wait until that happens and then try and build our faith. Our faith can’t take a holiday and then us try and travel through the ghettos of hell or we’ll never find our way out. So don’t throw your faith in Jesus away, or push it aside because you don’t think you need it right now. No, stand on it, always, at all times and declare it to the world. Build up your faith day by day.
Holy and Mighty Father God, today is a good day for me. But I am acutely aware that some of those I love, some of my brothers and sisters are wrestling with and are throwing away their confidence in Your love, mercy, grace, peace, and deliverance. Please use me, but even more I pray that You use Your Holy Spirit through me to renew their hearts. I pray that You reveal unto them the errors they have been making. Reveal unto them the real need for holding on to their faith and confidence in You. Lord, place Your mighty hand upon their lives and our lives and intervene directly to change the course of events and give us relief through Your rest. In Jesus name I pray.
