“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”Hebrews 11:1-2
As believers in the finished work of Jesus Christ, we are forever sealed into a covenant relationship with Him. We can boldly, surely approach the throne of grace to find help in our hour of need, walking by faith not by sight in dark times. We do so with saints who went before us, many of whom God took through wondrous circumstances, others of whom God walked alongside of as they were tortured, jeered, flogged, or imprisoned.
Having such a firm foundation enables us to journey onward through the highway of our lives. There will be rocky places as well as smooth pathways, but it is possible to find a sure foothold as we travel under His providential care.
“He owns me for a child,/ I can no longer fear./With confidence I now draw nigh/ And ‘AbbaFather’ cry.” (Charles Wesley, 1742)
