A Great Recompense

View daily reading plan: Hebrews 10.34 -11.2

Here is God’s perfect answer to the great trial of afflictions. If we are called to pass through great trials and tests, then we have the assurance  that they draw us closer to our Lord and there is a reward at the end.

The first promise for us is that “yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry” (Heb 10:37). The Lord’s coming should always be the overriding hope of every believer. We shall see our Lord. He is coming as He promised, to receive us to Himself (John 14:3). On the day when we were saved, we entrusted our lives into His hand. Since that time, we have learned to know and love Him more as we have progressed on the pathway that He has marked out for us, but nothing will ever match the certainty that we shall meet Him, see Him and be like Him.

The next promise is that “the just shall live by faith” (Heb 10:38). This verse is quoted three times in the New Testament and on each occasion, the emphasis is on a different aspect. In Romans 1:17 it is the assurance that we have the security of a righteous standing in the sight of God. In Galatians 3:11 it is in the context of faith as the basis of justification and, as such, it lifts us above our failures to rest in the One who can never fail. In Hebrews 10:38, especially considering the examples of the next chapter, it assures us that there is clear evidence that all we need for life is available to us.

Does our faith claim the promises of God and make them realities that mould our lives?
