17 Dec The Assurance – 12/17/20
Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
During this pandemic, I have hoped for different things. I have hoped for the pandemic to end; I have hoped for school to be back to normal again; I have hoped to see my parents and friends during the holidays. However, our hope cannot be found in this world. Our hope can only be found in Jesus. We are saved by faith, and we must live by faith, even in the things we do not see. His Word says if we could only have faith like a tiny mustard seed, we could move mountains. Through the Bible, Holy Spirit, and prayer, we have confidence in His promises. Christ has proved this over and over again throughout Scripture, and in our own personal experiences as well. God is working, and works despite our inadequacies.
God, help us to believe in you with our whole heart and put our hope in Jesus alone.
