“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
(Hebrews 11:1 ESV)
“These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.”
(Hebrews 11:13–16 ESV)
Sometimes all that’s left is hope for heaven.
Sometimes, in God’s providence and wisdom, the promises fail.
Though this may cause doubt and fear and foolish thoughts fit for an unbeliever…God is not ashamed to be your God…or mine.
That’s all I’ve got this morning.
If you can make your own application, you’re in my prayers.
