“For when God made a promise to Abraham, since He had no one greater to swear by, He swore by Himself:
I will indeed bless you,
and I will greatly multiply you.
And so, after waiting patiently, Abraham obtained the promise. For men swear by something greater than themselves, and for them a confirming oath ends every dispute. Because God wanted to show His unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, He guaranteed it with an oath, so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. We have this hope as an anchor for our lives, safe and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. Jesus has entered there on our behalf as a forerunner, because He has become a high priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 6:13-20)
Promises. When God makes a promise, He delivers. He is always faithful to deliver. We may have to wait for His timing but God is faithful. We see here in Hebrews the writer talk about God’s promise to Abraham. God’s promise was fulfilled in full to Abraham. Likewise, when Jesus came, God’s promise of redemption was fulfilled. And someday Jesus will return just like was promised.
Whether you are going through a season of waiting (like I am) or you’re about to enter that time, remember God’s promises. Remember God’s faithfulness. We have a hope in Jesus. We have an anchor that secures our faith. Let us continue to trust and be faithful in the wait and trust in the promises that God has given to us.
