Scripture: Hebrews 10:32 Remember those days in the past when you first learned the truth. You had a hard struggle with many sufferings, but you continued strong. (NCV)
Nugget: For many of us, our earlier days of walking with God were full of faith & confidence in what God could do. We were new in faith, wide-eyed & saw things wide-opened. Many times, we thought that giving our lives to God removed a lot of the struggle. However, most of our challenges came after our walk with Him began, but in spite of this, we continued to hold strong in God & what He called us to do.
In looking back at our pasts, we mustn’t look back to bring up tough memories or to dwell there, but we must look back to see how far God has brought us & to remember that we made it through. We are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit for; we are especially strong in God.
Continue strong; there’s nothing we can’t do without Him. Our strength & growth are in God.
Quote: “Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to fall away while God is resolved to hold you.” -JJ Packer
