An Encouraging Word

 

 

 
 

Hold On


"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess (without wavering), for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23 (NIV)


In a time when everyone has something to say, what are you saying? 


Today’s passage is an invitation to hold on to your confession or testimony regarding the hope that is in Christ Jesus and to continue to speak of that hope.  Paul is speaking to those who had become discouraged and were looking back to their old life before Christ.  However, he speaks not to their past, but to their future.   


Faith is based upon the finished work of Christ, which will stand the test of time; however, hope looks forward to our future.


What are you facing today that comes to attack your hope and cause you to waver in your faith?  Is it trials, tests, setbacks, disappointments, hurts, pains?  Whatever it is or whoever it is; His word declares that Jesus Christ is the anchor of our soul.  (Hebrews 6:19)


In our current world we are facing a crisis of faith, where many have chosen to keep silent to others and even to themselves regarding their hope in Christ Jesus.  Everyday we hear something that would attempt to shake the very core of our faith and hope, but today we choose to confess our hope. 

   
Why should we continue to confess our hope in Jesus Christ?  When we have hope, we stand on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ, His word, and who He is.  “He who promised is faithful”.  In other words, He is reliable, can be trusted, and He will do exactly what He said.


Scripture declares that Jesus is our:
  a. Author and Finisher of our Faith. (Hebrews 12:2)
  b. Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6)
  c. God with Us (Matthew 1:23)
  d. Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:6)
  e. Lord over all (Romans 10:12)
  f. Man of sorrows and acquainted (familiar) with our pain (Isaiah 53:3)
  g. Mediator (Hebrews 12:24)
  h. Saviour (2 Peter 2:20)


Today we must continue to believe and speak God’s word over our situation.  Always remember, you have more power than you think, but you must release that power by confessing God’s word of Hope!  


"God will do this, for He is faithful to do what He says, and He has invited you into partnership with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." 1 Corinthians 1:9 (NLT)
