Today you should read: Hebrews 6:13-20
Thank you so much for the overwhelming responses to our writing of JumpStart. Your stories were moving and encouraging. Hebrews is a book of wisdom and challenge. Aren’t you glad we serve a God that we can completely trust? We can trust a God that:
- Is eternal
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:28
- Is consistent
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
- Is good
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
Verse 18-20 of today’s reading says:
God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.
God is Truth
I love these verses! God has given us His Oath and His Promise. And because of these things we can run to Him for refuge. He is a safe place. We can trust Him! He is immutable (unchanging) and it is impossible for Him to lie. To do so would force Him to stop being God. Satan however, is a liar and the father of liars. (John 8:44)
We have Confidence
We can have great confidence in Him and hold to the Hope that is found in Him. That hope is strong and it’s trustworthy. It’s an anchor for our souls. This confidence leads us through the curtain into God’s presence. We can go because Jesus has gone before us. He’s the perfect High Priest.
Do you trust Him? Fully lean on Him in times of trouble and prosperity. He’s dependable and you can trust in Him.
