Today as I read the 4th chapter of Hebrews I am truly challenged with the scriptures’ message. It is largely connected to my faith/trust in God Almighty. It is so easy to say I have complete faith in God. But, just ask me if I ever feel anxious about something in the day or something in the near future? My response is almost always–“well, yes!” Hebrews 4:2 says in part: “…the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not mixed with faith….” This is me so many times.
In verse 12 of this same chapter it says: “For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power; it is sharper than any two-edged sword….” I have never been more challenged than I am today to begin to address this anxiety I find at times with the assurance that God is exactly what His Word says–Full of POWER. I want to learn to claim this at every attack Satan would and will give me in this area.
