Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

If you have ever cheered for the underdog, waited for a promise, or taken on more responsibility than you thought you could handle, you know a little about faith. “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (v.23, NIV). What are you waiting on God for today? A healed relationship? A new job? A house sale? Relief from chronic pain? Take heart! God is faithful. He already has the answer in place and will reveal it when the time is right. We must hope in the face of challenges. We can do this because God is in charge.
