Heed the Truth

Scripture Meditation: Hebrews 2:1-4

Verse of Concentration: Hebrews 2:1

So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it”.

It’s happened to all of us…we get a truth of God’s Word under our belts, we experience a few triumphs and victories; things are going well for the first time in years! Then suddenly…we slip and it all falls apart! And we find ourselves starting over again.

Hebrews was written to a group of people like that. They made such great progress that they got to the place, where they should have been teachers. Unfortunately they began to let other things get in the way of their faith. They let the promises of God slip away…therefore they slipped.

They turned their attention away from the promises! And it’s not that they didn’t believe anymore, it’s just that they directed their attention to other things. They let their “word” level drop and since low “word” level equals low faith, they soon began suffering defeat in areas, they previous had victories.

Don’t let this happen to you. When things are going well, don’t just ride the tide of God’s blessings. Dig deeper into what God has for you. But give a more earnest heed to the promises of God. Concentrate on moving forward, becoming strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might, through the truth of His Word.

New Normal: Don’t get so busy enjoying today’s victory that tomorrow ends up in defeat. Give the Word more of your attention; for it’s the truth of God’s Word that shapes us into who we become…not only what we do…therefore victories belong to us “every time”!
