Devotions for Life

Hold On Tight!

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).

As we journey through life we hit bumps, fall into holes, and have to climb mountains. Life isn’t traveled on a smooth, straight, easy road. Satan uses that to work on us, causing us to doubt God.

At one time, we confessed that Jesus is the Christ, Son of God, Lord, and God. We heard the promises and rejoiced. Then the events of life happened. Our hold on our belief loosened a little and we wavered. We forgot the simple truth of the gospel message. Jesus died for all our sins, He was buried, raised on the third day, and was seen by many, many witnesses (I Corinthians 15:1-8).


Rising to the Occasion

Leviticus 23:1-8


The LORD said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. These are the LORD’s appointed festivals, which you are to proclaim as official days for holy assembly.”

“You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of complete rest, an official day for holy assembly. It is the LORD’s Sabbath day, and it must be observed wherever you live.

“In addition to the Sabbath, these are the LORD’s appointed festivals, the official days for holy assembly that are to be celebrated at their proper times each year.”


He’s Coming Back

Luke 17:20-37


“For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so it will be on the day when the Son of Man comes. But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation.”

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.
