Have you taken a look at the world? Without something to hold onto, without something to keep you steadfast, it could be easy to feel as if all hope is lost. It’s easy to wonder what’s the point of trying? It could be easy to get caught in the thought process of the world and never be content, never see the bright side, never understand the purpose of the struggle.
In a previous BAIYS devotion, it was written how God has a plan. He’s allowing certain things to take place to build us; and if we walk in faith, He will get the glory. Hebrews 10:23 (AMP) tells us that we must “seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering”. Looking at the world will most definitely cause our confidence to be shaken. That’s why we must fix our eyes on Him, knowing “He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word]”.
The route we walk, the path we’re on – it isn’t easy. It surely isn’t the path of least resistance. Though it’s the road less traveled, it’s a road for those who believe He can strengthen and is God enough to do all He’s promised.

Hebrews 10:23 (AMP) Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word]
Hebrews 10:23 (TLB) Now we can look forward to the salvation God has promised us. There is no longer any room for doubt, and we can tell others that salvation is ours, for there is no question that he will do what he says.
