I want to share some of Jerry Savelle's Daily Devotion with you today:
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering. Hebrews 10:23
Do you know what "hold fast" means? It is a word that we have heard so many times and may not realize the impact it has. Hold fast is taken from the Greek word "katecho". Katecho is a compound of two words: Kata and Echo.
Kata carries the idea of something that comes downward with force. While Echo is defined as "I have" and carries the idea of "I possess". The two words combined together mean not only to embrace something, but to hold it tightly and with force! In other words, to hold fast is to have a firm grip. You take hold of your dream with force, pull it downward and to you, and don't let ANYTHING take it from you!
The devil will try to come in and steal your dream from you, but when you are holding fast to this dream, it becomes a tug-of-war. You must realize that the Holy Ghost is with you, and He will empower you and strengthen you because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world! The devil cannot get your dream!
As you continue to hold on to YOUR God-given dream, remember this from John 10:10 (AMP):
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). AMP
God's plan is for blessing and prosperity to be operating in every area of your life here on earth! THIS brings glory to His Name and causes others to turn to Him! Make it YOUR determined purpose to live your life for the purpose of bringing glory to His Name and people into His Kingdom! Amen! Here is Hillsong with "Running":
Shalom in Him!
