Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. – (Hebrews 10:23, NLT)
We must hold on to the hope we have, never hesitating to tell people about it. We can trust God to do what He promised. – (Hebrews 10:23, ERV)
Let us hold strong to the confession of our hope, never wavering, since the One who promised it to us is faithful. – (Hebrews 10:23, VOICE)
Our hope ought to be held close to our hearts and ready on our lips, as we can be certain of what God has promised because He is faithful to do what He says He will do. There is something so reassuring in knowing that Christ is the anchor of our soul. We need not struggle nor strive to earn what is promised, but rather we are to embrace what we have already received, which compels us to speak truth in love to those who still need to hear. The Lord is faithful forever, and we can always trust that He will stay true to His word. May we rise up in faith and hold fast to the truth, as we go forth trusting the Lord’s promises and share of all that He has done.
Let our hearts hold fast,
to our hope that’s true;
for God is faithful,
what He says, He’ll do.
Let’s not hesitate,
His hope, let us share;
for Christ’s the answer,
for all in despair.
Christ does not waiver,
His truth shall remain;
His promises true,
the hope we can claim.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can hold tightly, without wavering, to our hope in You. Thank You that You can be trusted to keep Your word. Thank You that You are faithful, always. Forgive us for our hesitation to speak of the hope that we hold in You. Teach us to trust You more, so that those who know You not, may be given the opportunity to hear the truth of the how great Your grace is for all who call on Your Name, and how ready to receive each who seek, You truly are. May many receive what You are freely offering. Be glorified O God, as we hold fast to the hope we have in You, and speak freely of Your faithfulness. Amen.
Answer me, O Lord, out of the goodness of Your love; in Your great mercy turn to me. – Psalm 69:16
