Or should this title be Choices and Promises?
Hebrews 3 recounts psalm 95 “Today if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in rebellion.” It goes on to say the Israelites wandered in the wilderness because of their hard hearts, they did not have rest for 40 years.
Hebrews 3:12-14 Message So watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it’s still God’s Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn’t slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.
We’re in this for the long haul. Today, hear Him, listen to someone else you know who grips on to Jesus. The promise here is REST (ch 4:1).
The writer of Hebrews call unbelief evil. Whoa!
See, I wanna walk with friends that sharpen my iron. I want to live a life of rest, peace, joy. Even in my darkest trials, when I’ve kept my eyes focused on Jesus I find rest in His arms. The other night I was reading Hebrews 10 (thank you brother!). There is some strong language about our promises and what we can do! We can have confidence, boldness to enter in and be close to God if we keep our grip on Jesus.
Our promises: More than we can ask for or imagine, exceedingly, abundantly, provision, health, rest, victory! And on and on.
Heb 10:23 hold fast to our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful!
Today, we have a choice. Don’t harden your heart. Harden your heart, you wander like those in the desert. Gripping Jesus, you have rest, victory and God’s promises fulfilled!
Today, choose LIFE!
