Remember God’s Provision to Increase Faith

“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise.”

Hebrews 10:35-36

Ponder This

Every person who has walked with God very far knows God has seen you through dark times. The passage is basically saying, “Remember and don’t throw in the towel. Don’t cast away your confidence!” After God has brought you through things, you initially say, “I will never ever doubt God again.” Have you said that? But later, you find yourself doubting God again.

One time, Joyce looked at me and said, “Adrian, you’re so wonderful. If I ever criticize you about anything, I want you to remind me of what I’m saying right now about how wonderful you are.” And you know, I’ve had to remind her many times. We forget sometimes just how good our God is. Then we get into difficulties and trials and God brings us through, and we say, “Thank You, Jesus. I’ll never forget.” But then another trial comes, and we do forget.

The first thing you do when you want to hold onto a promise is to remember yesterday’s provision. God took care of you yesterday, and He will be with you in the future.

Real Truth Never Changes

Real truth never changes, and the truth about government is that it is God who ordains it, leaders who are responsible for it, and citizens who are accountable to it. The privilege of being called Americans comes with significant responsibilities—to God, to each other, and to the world.
