“So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps His promises.”
Starting in verse 19 of Hebrews Chapter 10, the title for this section is Our Confidence before God. I have to admit, sometimes I lack that confidence. Oh but the living, active, breathing Word of God comes in and changes my thought pattern – it redirects my steps back to God with us, our Immanuel. Hebrews 10:23 says, “So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us…” I ask you today, what is your heart wrapped tightly around? Is it worry, fear, anxiousness of the future or the next? These are all the things that creep into my mind. But the rest of this verse (once again) firmly plants my heart, mind and soul back on the confident hope of Jesus! “Knowing that God always keeps His promises!” My goodness, I could just weep knowing that God who lives inside of us always keeps His promises to us. The Aramaic can be translated “Faithful is the One who sent us this message of hope.” God is faithful! He always keeps His promises! Therefore, wrap your heart tightly around the HOPE that lives inside of you.
