Read Hebrews 10:19 through 12:29
“My righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved (Hebrews 10:38–39).
We come into a relationship with Jesus by believing in Him and what He did for us on the cross. By faith we enter in, and by faith we are to continue on. We are made righteous through believing. Those who do not know the Savior may have the appearance of saving faith, but they shrink back and are destroyed in times of trouble.
Those of us who truly know the Lord will continue on in our faith. We will persevere when hard times come. This does not mean that life will always be easy. No, we will face doubt and dryness at times, but if we surrender to God’s grace, we will find His refreshing fountain of faith and forgiveness. God will help us to be faithful no matter what we face.
Prayer Suggestion: Dear Lord, I surrender to Your grace. I believe Jesus died and rose again for my justification. I choose to follow You even when the hard times come.
