Hebrews 10:32-36 says, Remember those early days after you first saw the light? Those were the hard times! Kicked around in public, targets of every kind of abuse—some days it was you, other days your friends. If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seized your goods, you let them go with a smile, knowing they couldn’t touch your real treasure. Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back. So don’t throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It’s still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. (From The Message Bible)
There are some important nuggets that the author of Hebrews is telling us, one of the things that he is reminding us is that very day we accepted Jesus into our hearts. Why would Jesus want to remind us of this day? Well, first of all when that day happen we had so much zeal that no one could bring us down no matter how much people or friends talked about us.
Now that you have been saved from some time now we find ourselves losing sight of that zeal we once had, and Jesus wants us to never lose that zeal. He wants you and I to be sure of the confidence we once had and for us to never quit.
So, when you find yourself feeing as though you have lost your way or your footing remember those early days, when you first saw the light. For it is that light that will guide you back to the correct path in which you stepped off.
I shared these scriptures from the Message bible and not from my King James or NIV bible, but I ask you today as you read and re-read these verses, my prayer is that God reveals something powerful to you that it will cause you to change the way you look at difficult times. I know for me when I read this it was so powerful that it hit me like a ton of bricks. “God sure does know what we need to read at that very moment” AMEN?
