Verse Of The Day : let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10 : 23
LISTEN : What did you believe to see happen in your life? Have you stopped believing? Is your faith growing cold and weak because nothing seems to work as originally planned? Are you giving up hope because there is nothing to hope for anymore? Have you stopped confessing Jesus Christ and your faith in Him? Beloved, where is your faith? Why are you fainting just because of adversity? My dear, God did not promise us trouble-free life, but His help in trouble. He promised to answer, deliver, bless and honour anyone who trust in Him. That is why He says thus in His word concerning anyone who will obey Him: “He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. I will satisfy him with long life, and show him my salvation.” (Psalms 91 : 15 , 16).
Beloved, do not be distracted by trials and persecution, instead, remain focused by faith. Determine to hold fast the confession of your hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful. Truly, God is too faithful to fail. Whatever He promises to do He will do. Just keep faith with His word and you will not regret it. Be strong, courageous and believe you can make it! Just put your trust in God and keep moving forward. Surely, you will find “light at the end of the tunnel.” Be wise!
