Hold Unswervingly To The Hope You Profess
HOLD UNSWERVINGLY TO THE HOPE YOU profess, for I am faithful. Sometimes, especially when many things are going wrong,all you can do is hold on to Me. You would love to sort things out in your mind and find a way to go forward, but often this is impossible. The best thing to do at such times is seek My Face and profess your hope.
To profess hope is to affirm it openly. Your words matter! They make a difference, not only to other people but also to you. They have a strong influence on your physical and emotional well-being. Negative words will pull you down. But when you openly affirm your hope and trust in Me, you gain strength to move forward with confidence.
The basis of this confidence is that I am faithful. Moreover, I will not let you be tempted beyond your ability to endure. Sometimes the way of escape I provide is through your own words, such as: “I trust You, Jesus; my hope is in You.” This sort of affirmation helps you hold on to your hope unswervingly persistently.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
[1 Corinthians 10:13]
