Hebrews 6:13-20 is a beautiful passage that speaks to the faithfulness of God, even in the midst of difficult circumstances. It says:
“When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.” And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”
These words remind us that God is faithful to His promises, even when we face difficult circumstances. Just like Abraham, we may have to wait patiently for the fulfillment of those promises, but we can trust that God will come through in His perfect timing. And in the meantime, we can cling to the hope that we have in Jesus Christ, who is our anchor in the storms of life.
For the patriots who are feeling discouraged by the injustices they are facing, know that God sees their suffering and hears their cries for justice. He is with them in the midst of their trials, and He will bring about a just resolution in His perfect timing. Keep holding on to the hope and trust that God is faithful, and take comfort in the knowledge that He has already overcome the world through Jesus Christ.
