Let us hold fast the confession of our hope [expectation, assurance] without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.  (Heb 10:23 – definition added in brackets)

The hope of the righteous will be gladness . . .  (Prov 10:28 a)

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.  (Rom 5:5)

Hold fast [firm, unwavering] to the confession of hope that you have in Jesus.  In other words, don’t wimp out and don’t give in!  The reason we hang onto faith, hope, and the Word is because we KNOW that He who promised is faithful, reliable, and true. 

God does not lie (Num 23:19; Heb 6:18) and He will not change.  (Mal 3:6; Heb 13:8)

We never need to falter or wonder.  Because these statements are true, we can utterly rely upon God’s Word.  We can rest in knowing that He watches over His Word to perform it.  (Jer 1:12 NIV) 

For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. (Lk 1:37 AMP)

With God, NOTHING is impossible!  How wonderful and awe-inspiring to recognize this truth.  Thankfully, because of Jesus, we are with God—so we qualify to inherit every blessing and every promise of salvation. 

We have the honor of living our lives, each day, in such a way that we demonstrate how completely we rely upon God’s love, faithfulness and reliability.  We have the privilege of serving as God’s own, very bright beacon shining for Jesus in this ever-darkening world.
