Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward. For you need endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. For yet “in a very little while, the one who is coming will come and will not delay; but my righteous one will live by faith. My soul takes no pleasure in anyone who shrinks back.” But we are not among those who shrink back and so are lost, but among those who have faith and so are saved. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. (Hebrews 10:35-11:2, NRSV)
Do not lose confidence in what we know are the promises of God. Through this assurance we will gain endurance to stand firm against everything that will try to break us down.
We will live strong by faith, when we hold to the promises and live by faith! An assurance in the things we have hoped for, the understanding that the things we can not see now are true and will come to be.
So stand firm in your faith. Knowing God is always with you.
