Hey friends, how are you? It’s a fabulous day in my neck of the woods. The sky is covered with dark clouds which has completely hidden any sign of the sun, but it is currently 37° with a forecasted high of 40°. That, my friends, means it’s above freezing and when you live in Upstate NY, any day above freezing is a good day. What does a winter day look like in your neck of the woods?
My devotions in presently in the book of Ephesians, but before there I read Hebrews. Funny name for a book, don’t you think? I’m sure, like me you’ve heard a few quips about it, such as ‘he brews coffee’ or ‘he bruise his heel’ anyway I digress back to the point. I came across Hebrews 10:23; ‘let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, because He who promised is faithful’ (decided to memorize it). Hebrews has a few open phrases like this one ‘He who promised’. The obvious question here is ‘He who promised what?’ What I enjoyed most about this book is that it stands on the premise that we should know. The author takes the reader back to Genesis and culminates at the feet of Jesus in Heaven. At this point, we should know that He is faithful to keep His promises. He is trustworthy and dependable. We can trust Him to do what He says He will do. This verse leaves no room for doubt or speculation; He who promised is faithful! And that, my friends, will do it for me. How about you?
