Fresh Hope – 10th August 2017

Hebrews 10:35-37 So 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. For, ‘In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.’

What are you believing God for today? Healing? Relationship? Promotion? Freedom from addiction? God has promised all these things to you in His word. He wants you to live in blessing and wholeness all the days of your life. But in order to experience his promises, we have to do our part. We have to keep believing and trusting in him. That’s what today’s verse is saying: if we will keep in faith, if we will keep believing and trusting in Him, if we will keep doing the right thing, Gods promises will be there as a reward. I like how one translation of the Bible puts it, “Don’t get discouraged. Pay day is coming.”

When you’re tempted to get down, when things aren’t going your way, just say to yourself, “this may be hard, it may be taking a long time, but I know God is a faithful God. I’m going to keep believing because my reward is coming.”

Today as you trust Him and stand in faith, and as you boldly declare His promises you are positioning yourself to receive his blessing. No matter what your circumstances look like, remember payday is on its way – and you will experience the blessing He’s promised all the days of your life!

2 Corinthians 1:20 ‘
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ…’
