Today’s Reading: Hebrews 6:13 – 7:14
Yesterday, BJ unpacked Psalm 31 for us. David, the writer of the Psalm, remembered God’s grace and generosity to him through some really tough circumstances. Even though the circumstances were a result of David’s poor choices, God remained faithful.
Hebrews 6:13-20 carries a very similar theme. In my Life Application Study Bible (Tyndale House), this section is titled God’s Promises Bring Hope. It is focused on God’s outlandish promise to bless Abraham and give him many descendants, even though he was childless and advanced in age (Genesis 12). After 25 years of waiting, Isaac was born to Abraham.
The main point here is that God’s promises are true. They are unchanging and trustworthy because God is unchanging and trustworthy. While God’s timing doesn’t always align with our timing. He promises us unconditional acceptance and deliverance if we truly seek him. This is hope!
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure (Hebrews 6:19a).
