Topic: Be Confident In Christ [TREM Devotional Wednesday May 23, 2018]
“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25
He can save until the uttermost. That means complete! It means He is able to save you now and save you through eternity. He can save you for now and save you for the future. He is able to save them that come to God by Him, seeing He ever lives to make intercession. We have a man at the right hand of the Almighty who is always speaking for us. When the devil accuses you, and says: “You see, he has done this and done that”; God says: “Yes, it is true, but Jesus paid for it”.
Philippians 1:6 speaks of “Being confident”. That means you stop having doubt about what the future holds for you. Let me declare to you, your future is bright. It can never be disaster for you. No! It is not possible! That is why Christ came. He came so you can have life and have it abundantly. Therefore, let no man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit after the tradition of men after the rudiments of this world and not after Christ, for in Him dwelleth the fullness of God and bodily. We are complete in Him who is the head of all principality and power. Beloved, you are complete in Him.
Have confidence in Christ. No matter how bad it is, be confident that it would turn around. I see you rising! Your story will not end in shame. That thing that thinks it would disgrace you; it will fall under your feet. The price had been paid, therefore, you are entitled to a good life. No matter what the doctor said, you are coming out of it. Be confident in Him who had begun the good work. He started it and will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. He will do it. You will buy that car. You will build the house and you will dedicate your babies. He didn’t bring you this far to let you down.
