Hebrews 10:39 “But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.”
I feel the Spirit is asking us all a question for 2013. The question is a simple one. What you gonna do? This question is not aimed at mocking us. The Spirit is not saying that it’s hopeless out there, you did what you could and the darkness increases, you better just accept it and worry about yourself or que sera, sera. 2012 was a year of endurance. I heard some great messages on running the race, getting your head on straight, pressing on, drawing near to God, resisting the devil, putting on the armor, praying without ceasing, reaching the lost, shining in the darkness, and many others. Hopefully, you have run the race well, with perseverance, through 2012. Well, now 2013 is here and the world does not seem to be any more promising.
The word of God tells us in 1 john 2:17, “the world and the things of this world will pass away, it is he who does the will of God that lives forever.” Revelation 21:7 “He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”
So, what you gonna do? Are you going to shrink back or press in? This question is not to taunt us but to spur us on. It is to challenge us to go deeper!
