Hold Fast

Sunday Pastor Ron Wienke shared about praying with confidence from Heb. 4:14-16. This is such a powerful passage of scripture. Pastor Ron mentioned that we have a small, limited conception of God and we do not account for a life that fits our God. We tend to limit what God can do in and through our lives because of our limited perception of Him. That self-oriented human thinking works its way into our thoughts without us even realizing it. The Holy Spirit will help us believe that God will accomplish great things in our life. We need to immerse ourselves in the Word to know who God is and know what He will do. The Word and prayer will reinforces our faith and strengthens our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We have a Great High Priest who has all authority in heaven and earth and sympathizes with our weaknesses. We must host fast, and cling to our faith in Jesus Christ. He will bring us through our times of need and accomplish His will by His great power.

I have found holding fast in the midst of life's storms can feel like the hardest thing we've ever had to do. Be determined to hold on. Be resolute. No matter how impossible things may seem - do not stop clinging to your faith, the hope you have in Christ, and the Words He has spoken into your heart. As for me and my house, we are determined to hold fast and see the wondrous things God will do.
14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Heb. 4:14-16)
