Hebrews 10:35-36 -- On God's Timing

"Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."
Hebrews 10:35-36


This is a cool scripture... that we need to have confidence that God will do what he says he will. Sometimes we do what God says and we look around and the people that are doing bad stuff seem a lot more happy and content than we are... or the promised blessings don't come immediately.  That can be really frustrating, because we often don't have a lot of patience.  We want the rewards NOW, and we often think that making any effort at all deserves a standing ovation, because it was hard for us to do.

The tough thing to remember is that this life is a test, and we have to pass it. We have to do God's will and then not abandon it immediately if something else looks temporarily more fun. Patience is part of the package... just like a child, when his parents teach him to read and write and walk and talk... and he can't do things exactly like a grown-up immediately. Learning takes time, and so do the blessings of God. He is mindful of us always, and he is applauding when we do things that are hard for us.  He wants to reward us for even the smallest efforts... but he also needs to give us things at the right time, and in the right way... and HE knows the timing best... we don't.

So, today, let's do good, and trust God.   He will give us the desires of our hearts, and bless us beyond imagining... if we can be patient and remember who we are for a little while. :)

  1. I believe one must remember that "the promise" is Eternal life. That reward is "sure" for those who do His will. Of this we must have both patience and confidence. Great scripture choice!

    1. His reward is sure "Who has promised". We just need to "Trust The Process". He knows The Way that We Take & When We Are Tried We Shall Come Forth As Gold". Job 23:10.I Love It

  11. I'm going through a tough time right now in a position, I have never thought I would be in! I announced that I was getting married this year and my parents "crazy". They didn't agree with my choice and now one parent is ignoring my texts. It hurts but I truly believe that God has called us to be married. My heart hurts but I am believing and praying that my parents come around. I am in my late late 20's and I thank God for my family, future family and future husband. I have been mediating on this scripture and I am going to wait upon the Lord and stand on His Word.
