“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. “For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. And my righteous ones will live by faith. But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.” But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.” Hebrews 10:35-39
I trust God. I trust him with my life. The day God saved me I started trusting God. When I started walking with God, I did not know where it was going to lead but I knew that no matter where He was going to lead me it was the right direction. We are starting into my favorite part of Hebrews; the section on faith. We cannot walk with God unless we have faith. I stand in amazement at all the things that God has done in my life.
We first come to God by faith. We place faith in what Jesus did for us to bring us into fellowship with God. Colossians tells us that in the same way we received Christ we are to continue living in Him (Colossians 2:6). We received Christ by faith so it makes sense that all of our lives we are to continue in faith believing God in all things.
We learn an important truth in this passage, through faith we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed throughout life, instead we are of those who believe and rise to any occasion because of what God is able to accomplish through us. Paul said that we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37), nothing in life can stand in our way, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39). His love enables us to be more than conquerors and to rise up in faith by believing what God has spoken to us in the midst of this world.
