Hebrews 2 - 4

Spent time reading Hebrews chapters 1 - 4 this morning. Very challenging and encouraging chapters!

2:18 "Since (Jesus) has gone through suffering and testing, He is able to help us when we are being tested."

In those moments of suffering and testing, Jesus is there to help! He knows exactly what we are facing because He too faced suffering and testing. The question is - are we turning to Jesus for the help we need? Today, am I turning to Jesus for the help I need? Today, are you turning to Jesus for the help you need?

3 times in chapter 3 and 4 it says, "Today, when you hear His voice, don't harden your hearts."

After all that God has done and continues to do it's amazing to me that we have to be reminded not to harden our hearts towards God. Our God who loves us passionately and gave all He had so that we could be freed from the curse of sin and death. But the reality is that we must be reminded not to harden our hearts to Him.

3:12 says "You must warn each other every day, while it is still 'today', so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God."

There is a spiritual battle raging around us all the time. We are constantly under attack by the enemy. He wants to deceive us away from God. He wants us to join his rebellion against God and the armies of Heaven.

Today, as God is speaking to us, let's respond quickly to Him! Let's not ignore what He is telling us. Let's not get arrogant and think we can handle things without His strength and wisdom. Let's respond to our loving Father immediately in all He asks!

Have an epic day writing an epic story with your life!
