God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. Hebrews 6:18
When I am feeling confident in myself, I never see problems, just opportunities. Jesus promised His disciples that God would deliver them from this messy life and passed on to them confidence through the Holy Spirit’s indwelling. This allowed Peter to preach on Pentecost to the 5000 when he just a few hours earlier he was cowering inside the Upper Room. Each time, I stand below the cross at Church and look at the wounds of my Savior, I realize just how strong is the gift of the Spirit. To inspire Jesus and the martyrs to accept suffering, to withstand such pain and torture, there must be a deep and abiding trust in the promises of God.
God cannot lie… this is a truth that inspires Confidence each moment of my life. He invites me to seek refuge in Him knowing that He will be present in my life and gives me the hope of everlasting grace. God’s DNA is made of truth and that fact prepares the whole world to eventually fall in line. At the great reckoning there will be a moment where the Lord will demonstrate His Kingship. I am grateful to have been introduced to my King early in life. I humbly share the Good News confident that everyone needs to be aware of God’s awesome gift of salvation. I don’t want anyone to miss the joy of having God call them into heaven to join in the everlasting hymn of praise.
My job is to trust in You Lord! Help me to put myself behind my faith and to lean into who You are calling me to be. You know me and will use me when I say YES! Help me to be willing to trust You always!
