Thoughts for today – Dec 27th 2011

Good day.  Today I want to remind you of how important it is to include certain things in your life.  Hebrew 10:23 reminds us to hold onto to the confession of our hope without wsvering, for He who promised is faithful.  When God gives us a promise it creates hope in us.  Hope is that little thing that gives promise of a future.  If a person believes they have no future then they fall into dispair.  As long as a person has hope they can stay focused and work towards a future.  The writer of Hebrews says you must hold onto without wavering.  He means that you must learn to trust God and yourself.  The writer then states that when God makes a promise He will be faithful.  Faith in the simpliest form is trust.  Do you trust God.  The realist would state, "I only trust in what I see, taste, touch, smell and hear."  Such a limited view.  The intangibles such as love, peace, joy and forgiveness are so much more wonderful.  I do not know what you are facing in your world but can you trust God?  God ask me the same question the other day.  I have been working through some things in my life.  I have been spending a lot of time time in prayer, reading the word and seeking His face.  As I was thinking through some of these things God spoke into my heart and asked.  "Do you trust me?"  I answered of course.  "Then trust me," He replied and this verse has become very special to me.  I hope it will become that way to you as well.
