Hebrews 10:23 ESV Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering because he who promised is faithful.
In our lives we sought to God with requests and we continually declare and confess his word but at times we lose hope and sight due to blows of life. But the word of God encourages us to HOLD FAST to the confession of our hope because trying times are coming, come what may. It’s always easy to have hope when life seems to be sailing and you are in constant fellowship with God, but once challenges come our way, hope is deferred.
What is to Hold fast the confession?
Well in simple terms, to firmly believe in the words you declare, e.g praying for healing, having a crusade, starting up a business, building an orphanage etc. When you believe and confess in your confession you will work towards it and guaranteed the results will show up. Yes circumstances around you might be against you and confessing that word will ultimately seem impossible but child of God, do not waver. I will attest to this, in 2016 l was employed and gave my first fruit securing my job, and l was like well job security is secured because l have given my portion to God. Towards the end of 2016 l left the job because the environment was not conjuicive. Leaving my job didn’t bother me because l was so certain that 2017 a better job will absolutely be at my doorstep because l did secure that job after all, *first fruit*
Well fast forward, the entire year of 2017, l was unemployed, yes no income whatsoever. I attended interviews but boy oh boy nothing fruitful would come out. I would apply but some days l would be reluctant but then l would push myself but still no income. Well in my opinion it didn’t make sense to me, l do have the qualifications but it seems like there’s no way out. Truth be told it felt like life was stagnant, (felt like Job) everyone around me but me was flourishing but l would always remember and hold fast to my confession. I finally landed a job in February 2018 and l can honestly say God is faithful to perform but it requires you as an individual to Hold fast to YOUR confession without wavering. So my question to you is what are you confessing?
Life will present lemons before us but Saint Paul writes 2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV But he said unto me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore l will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that the power of Christ will rest upon me”, God’s grace will locate us in any situation jus be aware of what you confess. It’s not easy to hold your head up high, when it seems like you are living a life of sinking sand but Keep Going!
Stay encouraged and be blessed!
