Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. — Hebrews 10:35-36
Life changes. Your routine, well managed life is turned upside down. New events challenge your routine. The hours of your day seem to have gotten shorter, demands on your time come from all directions and your peaceful, close encounter life with Christ seems to be fading in the stress of this overwhelming turn of events.
Do you ever miss Jesus? Is your relationship with Him so close that when you start drifting away you miss Him and yearn for His presence?
No matter what happens in life “do not throw away your confidence”. Our confidence is found through the blood of Jesus allowing us entrance to the holy place*. We need that holy time with Jesus. It has a great reward. We need endurance to fulfill the will of God. That endurance comes from our time in the holy place with Jesus. For by our endurance we will gain our lives^. Jesus is our life and without Him our lives are filled with disappointment, weakness, lack of confidence and stress.
Don’t throw away your confidence to approach the throne of God. For therein lies God’s promises.
Continually seeking Him,
* Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, — Hebrews 10:19
^ By your endurance you will gain your lives. — Luke 21:19
