Confidence In Christ (Hebrews 6:13-20)

When you are pressed in your despair,
And wonder if the Lord is there,
This confidence must be your hope,
And He will give you grace to cope.
For unto Abraham He swore,
“I’ll bless your offspring evermore.”
Yet Abraham was sorely pressed,
When God made Isaac as the test.
Yet Abram persevered in faith,
His patience, therefore, garnered grace.
And when two men may make an oath,
It’s by what’s greater than them both.
So God, when swearing, did appeal,
But to Himself – the perfect seal –
To show with overwhelming might,
The mediation made in Christ.
That those of faith may rest assure,
That their inheritance is sure.
And since the Father does not lie,
This matter no one can deny:
For those who have escaped the wrath,
And have this hope within their grasp;
The Lord has sworn, and He will act!
Now take great comfort in this fact;
As though an anchor for your soul,
This confirmation to take hold,
A confidence that will not fail,
To enter through the curtained veil –
For Jesus pioneered that path,
And we will follow Him at last!
