"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised." Hebrews 10:35-36
As believers, we do not need to live in doubt. We need to live in HOPE, hope in our God and in His good purposes for us.
Isaiah 49:23b says, "Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed."
This does not mean we will have no trouble or that all life is pleasant. However, He will be with us and bring us through every trial. To maintain hope in these times, we must cling to His promises as laid out in His Word as being more true than anything we think, hear, see, or feel. This base of trust and hope will flush away doubt and anxiety.
We can pray His promises and have confidence that these prayers are in His will and, therefore, will be answered.
In A Confident Heart, Renee Swope says, "We'll do the most important thing first: spend time digging deep into the heart and character of God so we can learn to depend on His heart toward us." (p.24)
