Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. – Hebrews 10:23 (NLT)
Have you ever held on to something so tightly it hurt? I remember the first time I went ziplining, I held onto my harness really tightly. I almost felt like my life depended on how tightly I held on. By the end of the ride, my hands hurt. I was holding on with all my might.
In a way that’s what we’re supposed to do with the promises we see in the Bible. We might see a promise, like we’re made righteous in God’s sight. However, when we look at our own life we see all our faults, shortcomings and failures. Instead of focusing on those things, we are to hold tightly to the promises in God’s word. When we truly hold tightly to them, we let them become more important to us than the other things going on around us and our feelings.
Choose today to hold onto God’s promises without wavering. Hold on to the promises in the Bible like your life depends on it. Hold onto what God says and know that God will always come through for us on His promises. He will never let you down or leave you.
