The Promise

When we make a vow, we use the name of someone greater than ourselves, and the vow settles all arguments. To those who were to receive what He promised, God wanted to make it very clear that He would never change His purpose; so He added His vow to the promise. So God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. So we who have found safety with Him are greatly encouraged to hold firmly to the hope placed before us. We have this hope as an anchor for our lives. It is safe and sure, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary. On our behalf Jesus has gone in there before us and has become a high priest forever in the priestly Order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:16–20 TLB

God has given us both His promise and His sworn oath that we are saved through the sacrifice of His son Jesus on the cross. Always and forever. Even so, on some days you may feel as if God is distant and find it difficult to sense His presence. This can be especially true if your circumstances are changing at a rapid pace.

Fear not. Hebrews 13:8 promises, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Your Savior has not moved; His love for you is powerful, unshakable, and eternal (Jeremiah 31:3) – an anchor for your soul no matter what happens.

Still, whenever you sense your relationship with God growing cold, it’s wise to examine your heart. Have you been distracted from seeking Him? Are you more concerned with the details of your life than your relationship with Him? Have you compromised any Biblical principles?

Like a boat in turbulent waters, it’s easy to drift from Him if you’re not anchored to the truth of His Word. So return to Him by opening Scripture and listening for His voice. Then, no matter what happens, you’ll be strong, steadfast, and immovable.

Prayer of Application: Father, don’t let me drift. Draw me close and reveal the nearness of Your presence through Your Word. Amen.
